At last, Hometown Story has a European release date.

The 3DS title hits Europe in April, according to a video interview with creator Yasuhiro Wada released by Nintendo UK yesterday.

Wada is best known for the Harvest Moon franchise, and Hometown Story bears some similarities. It has players running a village shop, eventually helping grow the town from ten to 100 NPCs, resolving the resident’s most heartfelt wishes on the way.

Rising Star is bringing the game to Europe, although other PAL territories are still to be confirmed. It arrived in North America in October last year, ahead of its Japanese launch in December.
