The 3DS library covers a broad range of genres and game styles, and includes some gems that may be considered 'niche' in some respects yet find success on the portable. Two examples are Story of Seasons and Rune Factory 4, which have hit solid sales landmarks in North America.

Publisher XSEED Games has confirmed that Story of Seasons has sold more than 150,000 copies in North America, with Rune Factory 4 passing 200,000 copies in the same region. To celebrate the landmark both have received a permanent price cut to $29.99, a $10 discount on each.

The publisher has also shown off the 'loveable capybara "pocket plushie"', which is 3.5" tall and will come with pre-orders of Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns from participating stores in North America.

At the moment Trio of Towns is slated for release in the region in early 2017; we went hands on with it at E3 and also spoke to its Head of Development Yoshifumi Hashimoto, and think it's shaping up rather well.

Are you tempted by either the discounted releases or the upcoming Trio of Towns? Let us know in the comments.
