Introduction[edit]

Anyone can make a difference.

And a bit of magic can make ordinary days seem extraordinary. When I think back, I recall that the letter started it all.

I remember the day it arrived...It was brief and poorly written, and didn't have a return address.

"Nana is gone..."

That's how the letter began. There was no introduction at all. "Nana"? Who was Nana?

"Nana is gone, and I don't know what to do...Please come to Nana's shop, and quickly! The address is..."

The village mentioned in the letter was the name of the village where I spent my childhood. I had such great memories of that village...

...And before I knew it, I was on my way.
Something seemed to be pulling me there...

Trivia[edit]

  • Hometown Story takes place in the same universe as the Story of Seasons (牧場物語) series, but is to be treated as a separate entity from the main series. It is not considered a series spin-off; it is a new work entirely.[3]
  • Hometown Story is the first game from Yasuhiro Wada's game company, Toybox, after the company was revived.
  • Before the name "Hometown Story" was established, the working title was "Project Happiness".
