Not too long ago, Marvelous Entertainment branched off the popular Harvest Moon series with a sub-series creating the game Rune Factory:A Fantasy Harvest Moon. Similar to the Harvest Moon series, you own a farm in a small town, filled with a variety of villagers. The main difference was that you wield a sword, and can use a special type of magic known as Arscode. Gaming websites' reviews rated the game highly, the lowest score being about a 70%. Now, Marvelous Entertainment has announced a new Rune Factory, this time for the Wii, will be released in Japan sometime this year.
Because of the success, Rune Factory 2 was released in Japan earlier this year, but no release for North America has been scheduled. But, keep in mind that both of these games have been for the Nintendo DS system.
In Rune Factory Frontier for the Wii, you'll be playing as the protagonist Laguna, trying to begin anew. As in other Harvest Moons, you try to build up the town you live in, while making new friends and hopefully trying to find that special someone to share your life with.
