If you were on the fence about pre-ordering Hometown Storythis might change your mind. Natsume has announced two adorable pre-order bonuses for the game, so everyone get ready to “d’awwwww!”

Hometown Story Plushie 2

Hometown Story Plushie 1

That’s right folks! If you pre-order the game from the right place, you’ll earn yourself one of these adorable Ember plushies. If you choose to pre-order the game from Gamestop or Gamestop.com, you’ll earn yourself the green Ember. It hasn’t been announced yet where you you’ll have to pre-order from in order to get the red one, but Natsume suggests that the answer to this question is coming soon.

Hometown Story is an upcoming title for the Nintendo 3DS and iOS. It’s a life simulation game set for release this Fall, and is being published by Natsume. If it reminds you of Harvest Moon that’s no surprise, considering that the game was created by Yasuhiro Wada, the creator of the Harvest Moon series. The game will also feature music by none other than Nobuo Uematsu.

If you’re curious about Hometown Story you’re in luck. We got to find out a ton about the game during E3 this year. Be sure to check out the trailer and sceenshots, and our Review Manager, Scott MacDonald‘s hands-on impression from E3.


Pre-order now from Gamestop.com, and get the green Ember plush!
