Rune Factory coming to US


Natsume Inc., a worldwide publisherof interactive entertainment software, today announced plans to publish Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon for the Nintendo DS™ and Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon for the PSP® (PlayStation® Portable). Both titles are expected to ship in North America during the 2nd quarter of 2007.

Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon and Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon are based on the popular series of Harvest Moon, where one must build and cultivate a farm while at the same time build a life with family and friends. However, these two titles offer new and exciting differences from the Harvest Moon franchise with new worlds.

“Natsume is very excited to be releasing these two all-new titles that are part of the Harvest Moon universe, but are very different from past released Harvest Moon games,” remarked Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of Natsume Inc. “In
addition to our traditional Harvest Moon franchise that fans have come to love, we hope these two new franchises will expand the Harvest Moon universe by offering great stories and top-quality game play!”

Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon

You awaken to find yourself in an unfamiliar village with no memory of who you are or how you arrived. Mist, a beautiful young woman comes to your aid and helps you start to build a life for yourself…on a farm. Till the land, grow crops, raise animals, catch fish and battle monsters! Battling against fierce beasts is very important for your survival, but making friends with them is essential for your farm life. Your life on the farm slowly starts to reawaken your memories of the past…

Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon

Dr. Hope, an old scholar lives on an island in the southern hemisphere. You are his son and your father has set you on a journey to the ancient ruins to try and run a farm. With technology being as advanced as it is, many have forgotten what it is like to grow something or take care of a living animal. It is your father’s dream that you will unlock the secrets of the ancient ruins and find the meaning of “life”. Grow crops, care for livestock, interact with the many villagers and explore a futuristic world as you try to unlock the many mysterious surrounding you.

Huge thanks to Ryosagi for the heads up!
