XSEED Games has announced that their RPG simulation title Rune Factory 4 will be releasing in stores and on the Nintendo eShop next month.
Rune Factory 4 is a fantasy life simulation game that combines farming and resource management with classic RPG dungeon adventuring. For the first time in series history, Rune Factory 4 gives players the option to play as a male or female hero. As the newly-appointed prince or princess, players fulfill royal duties of fulfilling requests from townsfolk, or taking a more rural approach to governing by harvesting their own fruits and vegetables to help out in other ways. The prince or princess can woo marriage candidates from among the townsfolk.
Rune Factory 4 will be released on October 1st in North America exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS both in stores and on the Nintendo eShop for $39.99.
