Harvest Moon: Mad Dash is in development for Switch, Natsume announced today. The game, which is described as a spinoff, will be featured at E3 2019 with its first appearance. Official details and a “first look” will be shared on June 11.

Hiro Maekawa, president and CEO of Natsume, said in a statement:

Natsume is giving Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition a new release with a “Complete” edition. GameStop lists the updated version of the game with a June 25 date.

Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition Complete is essentially the original game with added content. All DLC will be included, which is apparently an $18 value.

You can pre-order Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Special Edition Complete on GameStop here. Pricing is set at $29.99.

Natsume today announced the creation of its Natsume Indie Program, an initiative in which it will partner with independent developers around the world “to introduce creative, innovative games to a wider audience.” The first project will be Cosmic Defenders, an upcoming Switch title from developer Fiery Squirrel.

Cosmic Defenders, a 2D fast-paced revolving shooter, is “about a group of unconventional heroes using the power of nature to stop chaotic aliens from taking over the universe.” You’ll cooperate with other guardians to protect the galaxy from the wicked and restore peace.

Natsume and Fiery Squirrel will share more news about Cosmic Defenders leading up to E3 2019.
