Natsume gives the latest scoop on their upcoming Nintendo DS RPG based on the Harvest Moon universe, Rune Factory 2.
This title combines role-playing elements with "some aspects from the Harvest Moon franchise" such as farming, crops, and of course, fracken-cute character designs. Like an RPG, the title is heavily quest-oriented as players level up by fighting bosses, gaining experience, etc. But, unlike any RPG, Rune Factory 2 carries a "happy feeling" when you befriend monsters.
Rune Factory 2, developed and published by Natsume, will be out this October.
