Harvest Moon Creator’s Next Game Gets A Plushie Pre-Order Bonus, Too


Harvest Moon creator Yasuhiro Wada is working on his next original title—Hometown Story, a game where you play as a shopkeeper in a small, but charming town. During the game, you get to make one of seven wishes come true.



Hometown Story is being published in North America by Natsume, and while the game doesn’t have an official release date yet, Natsume have revealed a plushie pre-order bonus for it already, similar to the ones they give out with the Harvest Moon games.


The Green Ember plushie above will be available exclusively via GameStop. Meanwhile, details on the Red Ember plushie will be announced at a later date.


Hometown Story is in development for the Nintendo 3DS. While Natsume are publishing the game in North America, Rising Star will release it in Europe.
