If you’ve pre-ordered Hometown Story, Natsume’s new life sim coming to North America on 22nd October, you may be due for a cute Ember plushie depending on where you go: green at Gamestop, red at Amazon or yellow through Natsume itself. (There’s also a special blue color, but that’s only if you went to E3 or win it in a giveaway. Sorry.)
One might think such a selection of soft, huggable dragony things would be enough; that Natsume would just lay its Cute Card down in satisfaction and skip on home. But no: there is always more. More soft! More huggable! More cute!
According to Natsume’s Facebook page, they will be releasing a collector’s edition of Hometown Story through their website that includes a larger, fluffier, plushier plush of another creature from the game, Pochica. This edition is expected to ship sometime in November.
According to Siliconera, a European release of Hometown Story is currently slated for Q1 2014. It's unknown whether it includes access to these bonuses, however.
