It won't be long before you can try out the latest game from Harvest Moon creator Yasuhiro Wada. Natsume set his new title, Hometown Story, for release on Nintendo 3DS in North America on October 22.
Like Harvest Moon, Hometown Story has a laid back air to it, focusing on life simulation that has you taking over your grandmother's shop after she passes away. With the assistance of the magical sprite Pochica, players will be able to interact with folks around town, make the occasional wish to increase the happiness of yourself or others, and even fall in love and get married.
Pokémon designer Atsuko Nishida provides the art, while famed Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu handles the music. As previously reported, Rising Star Games is handling Hometown Story's European distribution.
