The Rune Factory series will make its debut on the PS3 later this fall when Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny sets sail on both the PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii. Rune Factory combines the gameplay of Harvest Moon with the pacing of an action-RPG.
In Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny, lifelong friends Aden and Sonja live a tranquil life on Fenith Island until they’re struck by a mysterious curse: they awaken to find both of their souls are now trapped in the same body. On top of this unusual fate, the Fenith they knew is gone, replaced by a strange island populated with unfamiliar faces. Only by exploring this new world will they be able to solve the mystery of this curse and save their beloved Island.
During the course of their journey, Aden and Sonja will be aided by a colorful cast of characters as they take command of the towering golem Ymir. Using their giant friend, they’ll cross vast seas, discover hidden islands and dungeons packed with riches, and battle fearsome monsters of the deep.
“We know our loyal fans have been patiently awaiting news of a North American release for Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny, so we are thrilled to announce that the latest entry in the fan-favorite series is on its way,” said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of Natsume.
Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny will make its first public appearance at E3 next month, so if you’d like us to get some time with it and bring you the info, let us know in the comments section below.
