03.12.13 - 1:21 PM

Shortly before E3 last year, Natsume teased a game only known by its working title, Project Happiness. Today, their joint project along with Toybox and European publisher Rising Star Games, was revealed as as Hometown Story. While little in the way of specifics were given, we do know that the title is headed to mobile platforms as well as the Nintendo 3DS.

The 'father of Harvest Moon' and Toybox's CEO Yasuhiro Wada and his studio are responsible for Hometown Story's development, a game and story which he says "that's dear to my heart - and I hope will become dear to the player's heart as well." The developers hope to attract gamers of all ages with this new, 'heartwarming' IP that's all about adventure, discovery, and, apparently, wonder.

Aside from the above trailer, we also have three pieces of artwork below. Natsume promises that more will be revealed on Hometown Story over the next few months, as well as during this year's E3 Expo in June, so stay tuned!
