Learn how to fight in upcoming 3DS game.

XSEED Games has released a new combat tutorial video for Rune Factory 4, coming to 3DS in North America later this year.

In Rune Factory 4, you can use both weapons and Rune abilities, which are similar to magic, during battle. You’ll gain experience points and new abilities when you defeat enemies. Enemies will keep spawning in an area until the player closes the Elemental Gate in that area.

Watch the video below.

      I feel for you. RF3 is probably my fave DS game ever and I’ve been following the news of 4 since it was announced. I really hope one day they do bring it over here. It sells relatively well for its niche in the EU at last check so I don’t get why it wouldn’t.

    Still very sad that this is 3DS only.
    Plus it’s not quite sure yet if the EU gets a piece of this one. *sigh*

    Hopefully you guys will have much fun with the game, it looks super nice. So colorful and shiny~

      I feel for you on how they screw EU region over, but I’m not surprised it’s 3DS-only. The only non-DS Rune Factory was that weird beach one for PS3 wasn’t it?

        Yupp, ya got that right Rune Oceans/Tides of Destiny was the only one. And it was released in Europe too! Australia got it even worse, they only recieved Rune 1 and 2 as far as I know.

        Well to be honest I’m not very surprised either but it’s still a shame since Harvest Moon and Rune factory are both great game series. It just bugs me that I don’t have the money to own every console/handheld there is. *lol*

        Maybe Rising Star will once again take over for publishing it. Those guys published most of the HM/RF games in Europe, even though that might take over a year. ^^”

          Yeah I was gonna say, it always feels like we get Marvelous games late, but EU ends up getting them up to a year later..

            Is it weird that I like to get everyone’s heart to 10?

            • thekingq8y

              no that normal cuz that called you want the game finished at 100%

      • http://www.twitch.tv/femmefox FemmeFox

        No there was Frontier on the Wii as well don’t forget.

        • MosquitoLemon

          I actually had no idea! Do you know if it was any good? The console HM games have been sort of ‘meh’ for me in the past.

          • http://www.twitch.tv/femmefox FemmeFox

            Sadly I cannot say as I never got a Wii in the end. But if it’s anything like Oceans, which also was on the Wii as well as PS3, then it detracts from the farming and favours the action. Which is a shame. I like the handheld versions because it gives you a varied mix of what to do and doesn’t restrict how you play through it.

            • MosquitoLemon

              Yeah, I like that you can do all sorts of crafting and stuff, even though you honestly don’t need it to finish the game.

    Still sad by the lack of noise for an EU release. I’ve been dying to play this since I heard it was in development. :(

  • Willgaea

    The dragon is called Ventuswill? That’s a sexy name.
