Happy New Year everyone, hope you've been enjoying it so far!
Natsume's gotten off to a great start to the decade by unveiling a newly-designed website layout. Everything looks clean and crisp and there's even a section labeled "Community"; who knows, maybe they'll open up a forum sometime soon!
But here's the latest newsletter from Natsume's president, Hiro Maekawa:
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who have supported Natsume and our titles over the past 15 years. Thanks to your continued support, we have been able to steadily grow this company in the very competitive video game industry.
We would especially like to offer our sincere appreciation to all of our loyal Harvest Moon fans for their incredible enthusiasm and continued support for this series over the past 12 years! Thanks to all of you, this uniquely nonviolent, heartfelt life simulation has grown from a niche title into a well-known series that is played and enjoyed by players of all ages!
Our company mission for the past 15 years has been and will continue to be to “Make Everyone Happy” with exciting interactive entertainment software for the entire family. For us, “everyone” is all of our customers, Natsume employees and all of the people we work with, such as our development partners, retailers, our distribution partner, financial institutions, and all of the other people who are directly or indirectly connected with Natsume and our products. We've been accomplishing our mission with family-friendly software like the Harvest Moon series and Reel Fishing, the #1 selling fishing series, for many years now.
We at Natsume are committed to continuing our mission to "Make Everyone Happy" and we hope that you’ll continue to see that attitude in every game that we publish.
Wishing “Everyone” A Happy New Year!
Hiro Maekawa, President & CEO of Natsume Inc.
