Natsume has released the E3 trailer for HomeTown Story, its upcoming 3DS game from Harvest Moon creator Yasuhiro Wada.

In it, you’ll see the game’s character creation, shop building, items, shop management, townsfolk, and other features.

Natsume’s Hometown Story will be shown at E3, its second year appearing at the conference.

About Hometown Story:

Developed by Yasuhiro Wada, the “Father of Harvest Moon,” and his studio TOYBOX in Tokyo, Japan, Hometown Story takes players to a new fantastic world filled with color and hope.  With music composed by Nobuo Uematsu, famous for his beautiful compositions for the Final Fantasy series, and character designs by Atsuko Nishida, the designer behind Pikachu and numerous other Pokémon, Hometown Story has a powerhouse team with massive creativity between them that creates a unique setting that players will be able to experience for the first time during next month’s show.

The recent passing of your grandmother and the shop you inherited has brought you back to your hometown. However, the shop has become run down, and no one wants to even window shop there anymore. Can you turn the shop around and even expand it, or is it destined to stay in the red forever?

You won’t have to go it alone, though. You’ll get help from a magical sprite name Pochica, who will help you get the store back up and running, and introduce you to all of the unique characters who reside in the town. The villagers will all change and grow throughout the game, and that person who you thought might be up to no good when you first met them just might have a heart of gold! You’ll never know what to expect in Hometown Story!
