"We're also pleased to confirm the game will be releasing on mobile platforms along with the Nintendo 3DS."

It's an experience that will fill you with motivation and magical memories! 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. More information about the exciting new title from Yasuhiro Wada will be revealed up to and during E3 2013.

"Our partnership with Natsume and Rising Star Games, who share our values on a quality gaming experience, is going to remain strong as we reveal more about Hometown Story throughout the year."

With a thorough mix of adventure, discovery, and wonder, Hometown Story aims to fill the hearts of gamers both young and old with an experience found in only a few other games, such as the lauded Harvest Moon series.

"We are very excited to be able to announce the game's official name and to launch a brand new global IP alongside our friends at TOYBOX and Natsume," said Martin Defries, Managing Director & COO of Rising Star Games.
