Rune Factory 4 finally arrives in Europe next week



Rune Factory 4's journey to Europe has been a long and winding road.

At one point, when developer Neverland went bankrupt and closed its doors, it looked like the role-playing game might never release in PAL territories. Luckily, though, this story appears to be moving toward a happy ending.

Today, XSEED and Marvelous Europe announced the long-awaited farming title will finally 'crop up' in Europe and Australia next week. It will be available exclusively via the Nintendo 3DS eShop starting December 11 for £25/€30/$50 AUD.

Rune Factory 4 is the latest Bokujo Monogatari spin-off, the publishers note, reminding everyone Story of Seasons is the new Harvest Moon -- not that new thing Natsume is peddling.

In our review, Dale North called Rune Factory 4 "a charming time sink," fusing farming sim and classic RPG elements into something players will find to be "an absolute delight."
