Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon was released on the Nintendo DS last summer and provided a refreshing twist on the long-running Harvest Moon formula. Today publisher Natsume confirmed that its sequel is slated for this fall. Rune Factory games take the Harvest Moon premise of raising a farm and place it in a fantasy RPG setting.
"The first Rune Factory title was a great success for us and our fans have been eagerly awaiting a sequel," said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO at Natsume. "The Rune Factory series is a great expansion of the Harvest Moon universe; it takes the addictive Harvest Moon gameplay that fans know and love and combines it with the action and adventure of a fantasy RPG. Rune Factory 2 offers better graphics and even deeper gameplay than the first, along with many innovative new features."
The sequel takes place several years after the first game. The world is at peace, but in a mind-bending twist that no other RPG has ever come up with, "dark premonitions foretell of dangers to come." In addition to raising their farm, players will have to raise monsters, marry, and go on adventures. This time around, the story is "multigenerational," playing as both Kyle and, eventually, his son.
Natsume will be showing Rune Factory 2 at E3 next month.
