Natsume has revealed a plush that will be available almost exclusively to E3 attendees and oh my god it’s adorable. The official plush, which will be about the same size as the Ember plush given away with Hometown Story, is a depiction of the dog companion players will have in the upcoming 3DS game Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley. The plush will be available at Natsume on the E3 showfloor, though the company has also teased that they’ll be giving some away via contest for non-E3 attendees.
While this new design is a departure from the usual brown dog/red bandana combo we’re used to, the look for this new pup is something I could definitely get behind. And it looks amazingly cute in plush form. I was already half planning on spending all of E3 ogling Harvest Moon, but now I may actually be serious about it.
Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley will release for 3DS later this year. If you can’t wait, I’ll be checking it out at E3 this week so check back for my impressions in the next few days.
