E3 2012: Project Happiness Trailer is Adorably Wistful

Pokémon artist on board

Harvest Moon creator Yasuhiro Wada has a new studio and a new game in the works, currently codenamed Project Happiness. TOYBOX, Rising Star Games and Natsume have just released the first teaser trailer for the game and it looks very much like Wada's signature style.

The voiceover will sound familiar to Little King's Story players, and the art style rings a few bells too: character design was handled by Pokémon series artist Atsuko Nishida. Best of all is famed Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu is providing the soundtrack; sounds like Wada has some pretty powerful connections in the Japanese development community. Or maybe he just has dirt on a lot of people.

It might look like a Facebook-style game but we've been assured it's not browser-based, and with Wada's past history on Nintendo platforms there's hope we'll be playing Project Happiness on a Nintendo console in the near future.
