Rune Factory Oceans unearths a fantasy involving love and adventure as main characters Azel (male) and Sonia (female) travel across the seas on a giant beast called Ymir; the beast has the ability to raise sunken islands and ships. Like its predecessors, Oceans will allow players to farm, form relationships, get married, and participate in battles using a real-time battle system.
According to producer Yoshifumi Hashimoto, Oceans has been in development for a while now and is pretty far along. They’ve went the multiplatform route this time in order to make the game available to more players.
Update 2: The PS3 version of the game is Move compatible. It’s currently 80 percent complete and scheduled for release in Japan on February 24, 2011.
