Nastume has developed and published some popular family-oriented games for consoles and handheld devices (think Harvest Moon, Rune Factory and Reel Fishing), but at E3 2013 in Los Angeles next month, they’ll be bringing their iOS lineup to the forefront. Amongst the numerous titles on display will be two entries in the Gabrielle’s Ghostly Groove series, a new Reel Fishing game, and a new IP called Ninja Climb.

AppleTell will be at E3, and we’ve scheduled some hands-on time with their iOS games. But before we get there and bring you that coverage, we’ll rely on their press release, okay? The following games will all be available for iOS devices.

Gabrielle’s Zombie Attack

Gabrielle has a problem on her hands… A zombie problem! A battalion of zombies has suddenly appeared, making it hard for a girl just trying to live her “normal” life in Monsterville. Luckily, these zombies are weak to mandrake plants! Therefore, you’ll be chucking mandrakes at the zombies to stop their advance! Can you help Gabrielle with her corpse conundrum? Gabrielle’s Zombie Attack will be ready to terrorize players in the next two months, and will be free to download via the iTunes Store, with optional in-app purchases.

Gabrielle’s Sweet Defense

Grandma Greta’s just whipped up the tastiest deserts this side of Monsterville, but the sweet-smelling snacks have brought forth an unforeseen enemy: Humans! Entranced by Greta’s goodies, the humans set forth to get their hands on them themselves! It’s up to Gabrielle and her friends to put a stop to the hungry humans!  Gabrielle’s Sweet Defense will be free via the iTunes Store about a month after E3, with optional in-app purchases.

Ninja Climb

A band of ninjas were on a secret mission to infiltrate a castle and steal its treasure. They got the treasure, but when they tried to escape through a moat, it turned out to be a trap! The water level around the moat is rising fast, and the ninjas must find a way out before the water catches up to them!

Build your tower by placing falling and rotating blocks on top of each other.  As you build, your ninja will climb the tower, but watch out! Don’t accidentally trap your ninja so he can’t climb up the tower, and make sure they don’t meet their demise in the water below!

Reel Fishing Pocket

Natsume’s world-famous Reel Fishing series continues on iOS! Now the world of Reel Fishing is available right in your pocket! With many kinds of fish to catch, tons of tackle, and loads of missions, it’s the most fun you can have fishing without putting on you waders! Players will be able to reel in Reel Fishing Pocket this summer.

Be sure to check AppleTell during E3 from June 11-13 for more on these games. You can also visit the iTunes App Store to check out their current lineup, or read our Appidemic of Gabrielle’s Monster Match.
