Rune Factory 4’s Release Date Pushed Back to Possibly October

on July 31, 2013 11:13 PM

For those awaiting the North American release of Rune Factory 4, you’ll have to wait a little while longer. According to a recent exchange on XSEED’s official Facebook page, it might not be out until Fall. A fan asked:

Hi quick question, when is Rune Factory 4 actually going to launch. I’m dying to get my hands on this title, but it seems to keep get pushed back.

XSEED Games responded back with:

And we’re dying to get it to you, but the game is absolutely massive and taking much longer to QA (play through the English for quality assurance) than we originally anticipated. Right now we could be looking at a late September or October release, but it will definitely be worth the wait.

While I’m a little disappointed myself, I’d rather the company take their time and release a quality localization later instead of a terribly translated mess earlier.
