After a certain incident, the protagonist—a boy who conceals a small darkness within him while living out his boring everyday life—ends up leaving the city and relying on an uncle he has never known, moving to the seaside town “Mihate-chou,” which is situated in a cove.

He spends his days with his new friends at “Mihate High School” and has an “unforgettable summer experience,” but what “incident” will occur in this tranquil seaside town? Depending on how you spend your days with the girls, the boy’s “world” will drastically change…

She is a member of the Tennis Club, and seems to be popular not only among the boys, but also among the girls.

Hometown Story isn’t just planned for release on 3DS. Natsume and ToyBox are preparing a special version for iOS, too.

At the end of the day, Hometown Story is best represented on 3DS. 3DS users are getting the full experience, unlike on iOS. In the latter version, players can only run a shop.

Creator Yasuhiro Wada explained the differences between the two versions while speaking with Siliconera:

“The iOS version does not have episodes with other villagers, players just run a shop. You get new items, you can save money, you can sell rare items on iOS too. Eventually, you will get new customers, but that’s pretty much all you can do. The core system of running the shop is the same on 3DS, but you will get to interact with the villagers and involved with their story.”
