NATSUME RELEASES NEW ASSETS FOR HARVEST MOON: HERO OF LEAF VALLEY FOR PLAYSTATION® PORTABLE

Burlingame, Calif., March 29, 2010 - Natsume, a worldwide developer and publisher of family-oriented video games, announced today the release of a new batch of screenshots that showcase the many environments and tasks players will immerse themselves in when Harvest Moon: Hero of Leaf Valley for the PlayStation® Portable launches next month. The game will retail at an MSRP of $29.99 and is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB.

"These new screenshots demonstrate what players will encounter when they work together with the villagers in order to save their small town from demolition," said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of Natsume. "We think this new Harvest Moon adventure will be the most fulfilling ever for the PSP, especially given that players can choose from multiple endings with the open-ended storyline."

Leaf Valley is in trouble! The heartless Funland Corporation is going to bulldoze the town and replace it with an amusement park unless its citizens can find a way to stop them! Players will need to grow crops, raise animals, and mine ores and gems to help save Leaf Valley and their family farm. Along the way, they'll earn money and develop their skills in interactive part-time jobs, and build their relationships with the villagers in order to gain their trust and help!
