After the bankruptcy of Neverland, the Rune Factory development studio, the news was pretty grim for fans of Rune Factory. I bring good news! The Rune Factory team and Marvelous AQL have announced in the Famitsu magazine that they are producing a new game under the title of Forbidden Magna.
Forbidden Magna is said to be a strategy RPG and will be released on Nintendo 3DS. This is no release date as of yet, however a few details have been shown in the latest issue of Famitsu. A character named Lux will be the protagonist and the game also includes three girls other girls. Their names are Beatrice (in the blue), Charlotte (with the pink hair) and Diana (with the purple hair). The roles of the three girls are unknown.
Being from Europe, I was very disappointed to see that Rune Factory 4 was not being brought here. I really hope that Forbidden Magna will make it to Europe, as the Rune Factory team could certainly use all the love it can get.
More details about Forbidden Magna should be with us soon; let's just hope they localise the game for western release.
