A closer look at Hometown Story!


Yasuhiro Wada, creator of the Harvest Moon series, has an in-depth talk about the latest game Hometown Story. Interesting stuff! The more I read about this game, the more it feels exactly like Harvest Moon. You're just a shop owner instead of a farmer. I think it'll still be really good though.

After 16 years with Harvest Moon, Wada is ready to try something new. When I asked if he felt pressure to measure up, he smirked and replied, "No." Wada expressed that after years of focusing on management as Harvest Moon's popularity grew, he wanted to take a step away and make a new game.

Just like Harvest Moon, Hometown Story is based on Wada's own life and his own hometown. Wada went off to find success in Tokyo, but returned to his hometown to explore his childhood. How things had changed, right down to the shops, motivated him to a game based around that concept. In fact, he said Hometown Story's theme can be summed in one word: changes. So it's no surprise in Hometown Story that you're going back to your roots after inheriting a shop from your late grandmother.

A Marvelous move + GBC release!
A while ago XSEED Games and Marvelous Entertainment Inc. talked about how they're partnering up with each other. They will be called Marvelous Entertainment USA.

Marvelous Entertainment Managing Director Yasuhiro Wada stated, "We're pleased to be able to announce our new expansion into the largest gaming market in the world, the United States. I'm confident that together with our co-publishing agreement with XSEED Games, we will be able to hit the ground running as we ramp up our US operations." He was joined in comment by XSEED Games President Jun Iwasaki, "We're honored to get the chance to partner with Marvelous Entertainment as they establish and grow their presence in the US market. They have an exceptional library of original and creative games many of which should prove a hit with Western gamers."

To read the full story: Go on over to RPGamer.

When one of our members on here asked Natsume Inc. if they're going to continue to publish Harvest Moon games now that there's Marvelous Entertainment USA, they said "XSEED has been owned by Marvelous for some time now, and Digital Index was not purchased or merged. Very little changed beyond a name and who runs a couple MMORPGs." - so there's that.



In other news, HM: GBC is now out for Virtual Console! Woohoo! What are you guys waiting for? Go get it. Go, go, go!

Kotaku did this thing called "Game Developers Do Their Best Fake Gamer Impressions" and we absolutely loved seeing the CEO of Natsume posing with his giant cow. Take a look. They're so adorable!
