This news may not be exciting to most of you, but I'm the one who gets to write the blog posts and I love Rune Factory. So it pleases me to let you know that Rune Factory 3: A Fantasy Harvest Moon is all finished up and ready for retail. And, in a month, we can have it in our hot, little hands.

What interests me about this third installment in the farming sim / action-RPG series is the story. Instead of it being merely about some enemy eventually coming out of the woodwork to threaten a peaceful world, there's already some existing conflict in place. Humans and an intelligent monster race have been in conflict for a long time and it's up to the hero -- a hybrid of the races -- to unite them against some enemy that will eventually come out of the woodwork.

Okay, so it's not Shakespeare. Sounds like progress, though!
