Rune Factory 4 Announced, Inbound for the Nintendo 3DS

on June 30, 2011 5:30 PM

This week’s Famitsu magazine let fly that the latest installment of the Rune Factory franchise will be coming to a Nintendo 3DS near you – at least in Japan. In Rune Factory 4, you can, naturally, choose between a male and female lead. This is important because this entry in the franchise will have improved relationship elements and focus a lot more on the interactions between you and your better half, before and after you hook up.

Some screens and artwork were also released for the title, which you can find after the cut. Mark this down as another game I’m actually looking forward to if it ever comes to North America (fingers crossed!). If you want to check out the game’s official site, it’s up and running, as well.
