According to a Facebook post from XSeed Games, Rune Factory 4 may perhaps be heading for a release in North America.
On answering a fan asked question, the publisher hinted on localizing the latest entry in the Rune Factory series.
The fans asked:
Rune Factory IV. Possibility you guys might bring it over? Or should I annoy Natsume?
XSeed replied with:
Hmmm, we’ve had an itch to work on another Rune Factory game since we loved Frontier so much, so let’s see if we can’t grab a back scratcher somehow…
Xseed Games, along with Nintendo, helped localize Japanese-released The Last Story in North America this past summer. Also under its belt is another Rune Factory title, Frontier, which saw a North American release in 2009.
Rune Factory 4 was developed by Neverland Co. for the 3DS and was released earlier this year in July. North American fans of the role playing genre can keep their fingers crossed and hope the news for Rune Factory is true.
