Following the recent lead of SouthPeak Interactive, game publisher Natsume has joined the ranks of the Entertainment Software Association.
Natsume, which publishes for the PSP, PS2, Wii and DS, is best known for the Harvest Moon RPG series.
Natsume CEO Hiro Maekawa commented on the decision:
It’s important to partner with an organization which not only acts as the voice for the video game industry, but also reflects the mission and goals we have established for our company. We are pleased to join the ESA and are excited to collaborate on upcoming programs and activities such as the 2009 E3 Expo.
The addition of Natsume brings the tally of ESA member companies to 22.
