Hometown Story Plushies Appearing in the Wild

Who doesn’t love the feel of a soft, squishy creature with ties to a favourite game? Natsume fans are no stranger to this phenomenon, with the company’s pre-order deals in the past including such plush friends as cows, yaks, and so on. And the tradition now continues!

For the upcoming game Hometown Story, coming from the creator of Harvest Moon (Yasuhiro Wada), players who are looking forward to taking on the role of small town shopkeeper can place a pre-order for their game and receive one of two different colored creatures called Embers.

Through Siliconera, Natsume has confirmed that pre-orders through GameStop will receive a Green Ember, but as for the Red Ember? No one yet knows where that little piece of adorableness will pop up!

We’re not sure yet if Europe will see a similar offer for pre-orders—and interestingly enough, we don’t yet have a firm release date for the game… but it should come down the line fairly soon!

Keep an eye out for more information on the Red Ember and other possible locations to pre-order for this offer.
