Natsume won’t be bringing any additional titles to the North American Wii U Virtual Console this year. Instead, we’ll need to wait until 2016 for any additional titles. That means we won’t be seeing the likes of Medabots: Rokusho/Metabee and the two Medabots AX games until a couple of months from now at the very least.

Interacting with fans on Twitter, Natsume said:

Medabots: Rokusho and Metabee have been available in Europe since October. The Medabots AX games are due out in the region this Thursday.

Medabots AX: Metabee and Rokusho are debuting on the European Wii U Virtual Console on Thursday. Watch their official Virtual Console trailer below.

Natsume’s new “State of the Farm” update provides the latest information about the company’s Wii U Virtual Console plans.

First up, Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town is slated for this week in North America. It will be launching on the Wii U eShop this Thursday.

Natsume also has more plans for Medabots. Medabots Metabee and Rokusho, already available in Europe, “will be arriving in North America by the end of the year”. Medabots AX is also expected in both regions “in the coming months.”


On Thursday, Natsume brought Ninja Strike: Dangerous Dash to the North American Wii U eShop. View the video below for some footage from the game.

Natsume has slowly been sharing new information about Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories through developer diaries. The latest one has gone live, which covers relationship and marriage aspects in the game.

Here’s the latest:

Harvest Moon has always been about building a successful life, which means running a successful farm, and also building a meaningful life with friends and family. Marriage has always been an important part of the franchise, and in Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories, we wanted to be careful to balance it against other gameplay aspects. We also want to make sure that wooing your favorite bachelor or bachelorette isn’t so time consuming that you can’t get to the other parts of the game you love. Therefore, we’ve put a lot of thought into how to balance dating, marriage, and family in Seeds of Memories.

Right around E3 time in June, Natsume revealed that Ninja Strike would be coming to Wii U. Only a few details were shared in the original announcement.

Out of nowhere, it now looks like Ninja Strike’s Wii U release is slated for this week in North America. Nintendo’s website is listing “Ninja Strike: Dangerous Dash” for launch on Thursday with a $5.99 price point.

For those of you who missed out on the news a few months back, here’s an overview of the game:

“Run, fly, and slash enemies to get the stolen treasures back. Ninja Strike: Dangerous Dash is a high-speed, action-packed, side-scrolling game! Players can choose from three “ways” of the Ninja: Run and jump over enemies or slash them to keep running, collect coins enemies drop to level up your ninjas. Whether you go with strength or triple jumping, there is a ninja for you! Choose from 5 different ninjas, each with their own special characteristics. You’ll face much more than just run-of-the-mill henchmen. Use your hard-earned coins to level up a variety of skills that will help you get further and make you tougher. Pick the skills that best fit your playing style. How far can you go?”

Check out the first screenshots from Ninja Strike: Dangerous Dash in the gallery below.


Another hour of footage has come in for Pocky & Rocky with Becky, the latest release on the Wii U Virtual Console. Check out the video below.

Yesterday, Pocky & Rocky with Becky was confirmed as one of this week’s European Wii U Virtual Console titles. In North America, the game should also be launching on Thursday. Natsume told one fan on Twitter today:


A new Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories has been added to Natsume’s Tumblr page. In today’s update, we learn that the game will feature a Town Square.

Natsume says that the Town Square in Seeds of Memories will have “a big role” in the game. All of the festivals will be held here, such as the Cooking Festival in spring and fall. Festivals are also where you can “interact with townspeople, and learn more about their hopes and dreams.”

Here’s the full update from Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories’s producer:

Farming takes time…tilling the soil, planting the seeds, and watering the crops. So, what are you supposed to do while you wait for your crops to mature? Visit with the local residents, of course! And what better way than traveling to town? There have been a variety of different types of towns represented in the Harvest Moon series through the years. Some big, some small, some spread out, and some compact. I have always been partial to the compact towns, with everyone moving around busily in their daily schedules, and a center location where the townsfolk gather for festivals and special events. Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories will have just this: a town full of life, and a town square where festivals will be held.

Since the first Harvest Moon on SNES, the Town Square has always been the “hub” of the game. Whether you’re attending a festival there, or just chatting to one of the villagers, it’s a place that’s always fun to visit. You never know just what’s going to happen there!

The Town Square will also play a big role in Seeds of Memories, of course. It’s once again where all of the festivals will be held. For example, the Cooking Festival will be held there in spring and fall, so make sure you have some delicious dishes ready to enter!

Festivals are also a great way to interact with townspeople, and learn more about their hopes and dreams. And of course, you’ll be able to raise the affection of bachelors and bachelorettes in special and unique ways, but we’ll be discussing that in another developer diary!


Natsume is bringing another title to the North American Wii U Virtual Console this week. According to Nintendo’s website, Car Battler Joe is due out tomorrow for $6.99.

Here’s the official overview:

Nobody knows why your dad, champion car battler Jim Todoroki, suddenly abandoned the fastest and most popular sport in Galacia. There is a rumor going around that he’s riding around with the most ruthless car-battler gangs in the world. But is it just a rumor, or is there truth behind it?

Play as Joe Todoroki, in his quest to become a car battler—like his father before him. His mother says he has the talent, but hard work will be the payoff. Customize a vehicle in the Garage to enhance or diminish its performance. Sign up for jobs, missions, and even tournaments as Joe explores the dangerous highways and byways that surround his village. Other car battlers fight for money and fame, but Joe has a higher calling: to restore his family’s honor and bring his father home!

Ancient developed Car Battler Joe for the GBA, and it released in Japan through publisher Victor Interactive Software back in 2001. Natsume localized the title for North America a year later.
