Majesco and Natsume Bringing Lots of 3DS Stuff to E3


Majesco and Natsume, two publishers well respected for their niche offerings, are hitting the E3 scene next week with tons of stuff to show off for the Nintendo 3DS.

In addition to previously announced Cooking Mama 4: Kitchen Magic and JAWS: Ultimate Predator, a movie-inspired action game from n-Space which was unveiled today, Majesco will have these 3DS titles on display.

– The Hidden: This augmented reality ghost hunting experience turns your handheld into a portal to the astral plane as you search through real-world environments with the Nintendo 3DS™ camera.

– Face Racers: Photo Finish: Customize your ride by taking photos of your face with the Nintendo 3DS™ camera in this personalized arcade racer.

– Nano Assault: Master this unique fast-paced shooter set inside an electron-microscope inspired viral world.

– Pet Zombies: Create, customize, nurture and torment your very own pet zombie!

While the headliner for Natsume will surely be PS3 / Wii title Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny, the house that Harvest Moon built is clearly focusing on 3DS development, and of course that means there’s a 3D Harvest Moon coming. More specifically, Natsume will be showcasing these three 3DS games (two of which are also coming to the standard DS):

Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns for Nintendo 3DS and DS:
The latest game in the beloved Harvest Moon franchise will be released simultaneously on two great platforms: the Nintendo 3DST and DST. Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns features a great new cast of characters, fun-filled new festivals, and a new request system that lets player take on hundreds of mini-quests to earn extra rewards! Players choose which of two feuding villages to live in, then they’ll build a thriving farm, compete in challenging culinary contests, and befriend townsfolk, all in hope of bringing these fighting villages together once again!

Gabrielle’s Ghostly Groove for Nintendo 3DS and DS:
Gabrielle’s having a bad day. She sneezed her soul right out of her body! She’ll have to travel to Monster Town, the home of all things that go bump in the night, to get help. Only by busting out the ghostliest dance moves and thrilling and chilling people will she be able to scare up the power she needs to get herself back into her body! It’s a spooktacular rhythm adventure!

Real Fishing Paradise 3D for Nintendo 3DS:
With gorgeous 3D environments and fish that leap off the screen at you, this is a fishing game like none you’ve ever seen before! Reel Fishing Paradise 3D takes players to 15 stunning fishing locales in their quest to become master anglers. They’ll fish tranquil lakes, rocky coasts, flooded forests, and more, all rendered in eye-popping 3D that brings every leaping fish and splash of water to life. A huge variety of fish will test the expertise of even the most seasoned fishing veterans, from wily largemouth bass to powerful bluefin tuna. Players can choose from more than 100 pieces of tackle and three styles of fishing: lure, fly, and bait. With so much to see and do, Reel Fishing Paradise 3D is a game that will have players hooked!
