Hometown Story sells its wares on 3DS this October

Harvest Moon spin-offs incoming!

Hometown Story is coming to market on October 22 for Nintendo 3DS in North America, Natsume has announced.

A simulation role-playing game directed by Harvest Moon creator Yasuhiro Wada, the title features a premise similar to that of doujinsoft sensation Recettear: An Item Shop’s Tale, both of which place the main character in charge of a newly-inherited family store.

The development team sports some well-respected talent, including legendary Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu and Pokémon artist Atsuko Nishida.

Coincidentally, Hometown Story will launch on the heels of another Harvest Moon successor, as XSEED Games just released Rune Factory 4 for Nintendo 3DS earlier this week.
