    happy day!

    What are these games like? I’ve never actually played an RF game before.

      It’s Harvest Moon with dungeons and a combat system. Take that to the next logical step (you can raise animals to help you in combat, you can craft weapons with ore you mine, etc.), and you have Rune Factory. Overall, they have been more enjoyable than the past 8 years of Harvest Moon games.

        Oh? Might be fun, actually. I’ll have to do some research.

        Sounds good to me. I’ve heard good things about the series but never actually played one. Might make this my first!

    Love the Rune Factory series, they’re so much better than Harvest Moon. Really happy it’s reaching Europe, the dark ages of certain games not reaching a part of the world are almost over.

    Love the game and I’ll buy it along with a 3DS when the money is available… for various reasons there is no happiness at all that Zen United is bringing this to the EU.

    I don’t like to be a pessimistic person… But remember Persona 4 Arena and how long it took to get to Europe?

      Do you like playing with people’s feelings?

        Your tears are delicious… >:D

        Seriously, I hope that Zen United does not screw this up….

        • Locksus

          I do, too. Though I’m hard-pressed to find all the money and time to play the upcoming 3DS releases, I would still love to get the game during my lifetime.

    Lol, Zen united. It will be a 2014 release then.
