HomeTown Story E3 trailer shows typical Wada whimsy

Harvest Moon creator Yasuhiro Wada’s new game, HomeTown Story, is so sweet I went into a short food coma halfway through this E3 trailer.

As the trailer explains, HomeTown Story has players creating a character, moving back to their old village to take over a shop, and helping to make the locals’ dreams come true. There’s a strong emphasis on stories and character interaction, and “no right or wrong answers”.

Hometown Story will be on show at E3, its second year appearing at the conference. It’s undergone a pretty serious re-imagining in the interim, though. It’s coming west in 3DS and mobiles.

Thanks, Gematsu.
