For those of you who enjoy classic Harvest Moon gameplay, you’ll be happy to know that series creator Yasuhiro Wada has a new game headed to Nintendo 3DS tomorrow called Hometown Story. Instead of running a farm and taking care of a small town of people, you’re given a run down shop where you must buy and sell items, similar to Recettear: An Item’s Shop Tale.
Of course there’s more to the story here and that’s something you’ll have to experience through playing the game, but for fans of JRPGs with underlying stories and quirky mechanics, your Nintendo 3DS library is about it get a bit fuller. The physical release for the game also includes the above plush, which is pretty cute in its own right.
