Natsume To Make Further Nintendo 3DS Announcements Before E3


Yumi’s Odd Odyssey (known in Japan as Sayonara Umihara Kawase) is being published in North America by Natsume sometime month, but the company has plans for other Nintendo 3DS announcements as well. (Thanks, GoNintendo)


Responding to a fan inquiring about further 3DS releases on Twitter, a Natsume representative replied: “If nothing else, we always announce games at/for E3 — but we’ll probably have something sooner.”


Natsume are best known for publishing the Harvest Moon series of games in North America, but the next Harvest Moon title isn’t being released in Japan until February. Perhaps they’ll attempt to announce a localization for this one over a little quicker, or perhaps they’re talking about other games entirely.


E3 takes place in June, so presumably we’ll hear something out of Natsume prior to that.
