Fans of the Harvest Moon series are already anticipating the return of Rune Factory on the 3DS, and XSEED Games is ready to give you another reason to repeat classes as Rune Factory 4 hits store shelves this summer! The classic spin-off to the popular farming life simulator (I can’t believe I just wrote those words) takes the original formula inHarvest Moon and builds upon it with dungeon crawling and monster taming on your days off from defending your kingdom from your enemies.
Rune Factory 4 has a larger single player campaign with the ability to select between male and female characters, so for all you isolated homosexuals out in the world who wanted acceptance in video games can be happy to play a game that may be stepping in the right direction. The hunky lumberjack may not be completely out of reach for men, nor is the female mechanic fixing your tractor, ladies.
This recently released tutorial shows what farming is like in Rune Factory. Don’t forget to water your crops everyday, people!
