XSEED Games has been hyping Rune Factory 4 for a while now, and it finally has given the game a release date. The latest title in the unique farming/action-RPG series will be released in North America on October 1. It comes at the price of $39.99, and will be available both in stores and on the Nintendo eShop. XSEED has also launched a Rune Factory 4 official website, which includes information on the game's world and characters.
In Rune Factory 4, players can choose to play as either a hero or heroine who has been given a royal title and tasked with helping develop the town of Selphia. It features all of the typical elements of the series, including farming, dungeon-diving, taming monsters, crafting, and, of course, wooing local villagers.
