Natsume E3 2016 Lineup Revealed, Only One Game for PlayStation Platforms

In a press release, Natsume has announced its list of titles the publisher will bring to this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) and there’s not a lot.

Natsume will be showcasing Harvest Moon: Skytree Village and River City: Tokyo Rumble for the Nintendo 3DS, while Wild Guns: Reloaded will be the sole now-gen game on its plate. 

Wild Guns: Reloaded (PlayStation 4)

It has been 22 years since the release of Wild Guns on the Super Nintendo. Natsume Inc. is bringing Wild Guns: Reloaded to the PlayStation 4 for the first time by teaming up withNatsume Atari Inc. (Formerly Natsume Co., Ltd.)!

Wild Guns is a fast paced gallery style shooter mixing the Wild West with steampunk. Players can play as Clint, Annie or two new characters, or all together in multiplayer action! Each can jump, dive and roll to get out of the way of the barrage of bullets enemies let fly – or shoot them down with their own gun! 

Wild Guns: Reloaded adds numerous improvements to the original, including:

  • Two new characters, each with their own weapons and tactics!
  • 1-4 player mode, where each player can take on one of the four characters!
  • Classic and NEW Stages!
  • NEW Boss Enemies and Special Weapons!

In Wild Guns: Reloaded, Annie has tracked down the famed bounty hunter Clint to get revenge on the Kid gang. With eight stages, each with three zones, there’s plenty of bad robots to blast away. With a true arcade game feel, Wild Guns was the first sci-fi western to arrive on home consoles and, to this day, there really isn’t any other game like it!

Natsume’s booth can be located in the South Hall, at booth 513.

Given how fond my memories are of Wild Guns way, way back, the chances of PlayStation LifeStyle checking the game out is quite high. Let’s hope the game lives up to the nostalgia.
