See Rune Factory 3’s Transformation Into English

Rune Factory 3's main love interest “The people of Sharance and their horned Univir neighbors are embroiled in a bitter conflict,” reads Natsume’s press release about Rune Factory 3. “An age-old hatred between humans and monsters divides them. Micah is an adventurer with an unusual secret: he’s half monster! He’ll have to unite the humans and the Univir in time to stop the growing evil force that threatens to destroy them both!”


Micah…so that’s the protagonist’s localized name. In addition to putting you in control of a Werewooly, Rune Factory 3 features an updated character interaction system. Not only do villagers react differently depending on what form Mais…er, Micah, takes…they can also assist you during battle in caves. Additionally, the game also features items called Active Seeds that you can plant in caves to act like traps.


There’s also a new multiplayer mode, in which up to four players can go clear out multiplayer-specific dungeons together for rare items and rewards. Natsume still haven’t announced a release date for Rune Factory 3, but the game
will be present at E3 next week.

    That “Rainbow!” picture made me LOL.


    Micah, eh? I actually like that more than Raguna (which sounds like a pasta dish) and Kyle. It’s also quite befitting for this androgynous hero to have a unisex name. That makes it easier for me to pretend he’s a girl, allowing me to play out my twisted yuri fantasies.

    I can’t even begin to express how excited I am for this game.

  • *excited* Bwee!!

    Can we also get a Rune Factory Frontier 2 while we’re at it?

    I’d also like an artbook of all Rune Factory games.. because I adore the character art.

  • Not only does he look girly, his name is girly as well! (It matches to be honest).

  • RAINBOW!!! FINALLY!!! WOHOOO I LOVE YOU NATSUME!!! MARRY ME!! I WONDER IF THEY WILL KEEP THE WAY OF TALKING OF SOPHIA like she is in the jap version that also talks like her father,… everything is the opposite of what is supposed to be… like…Sophia: I’m busy!Mice (or now micah): Uh.. sorry!.Sophia: I’m busy! why wont someone play with me!?Micah: Uh?! omgg i hope they leave it like that
