Natsume Inc has today announced that their new IP, Hometown Story will be playable at this year’s E3. The game is being developed by Yasuhiro Wada, the developer behind the game Harvest Moon.

The game, which was first announced at last year’s E3 under the codename “Project Happiness,” takes players into a brand new world full of hope and color. With the likes of Atsuko Nishida, the character designer behind the famous yellow mouse Pikachu,  and Nobuo Uematsu, The Composer responsible for many of Final Fantasy unforgettable scores, this will surely be a must play at E3 in 2 weeks time. In a press release, Natsume said:

“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!”

With E3 being under two weeks away, Players won’t have to wait long to see the game in action. Vivid Gamers will be covering Hometown Story along with other great games during E3, so be sure to be on the lookout for impressions on the site once E3 kicks off.
