Marvelous will be taking Rune Factory Oceans to the 2011 Jump Festa this weekend, alongside Half-Minute Hero Second and a browser-based Harvest Moon game. No, Night of the Sacrifice won’t be at the event.


They’ve also released the final box art for Rune Factory Oceans in Japan, and it’s seen some significant improvements over what was originally thought to be the game’s cover on Amazon.


Old box:

  • I NEED THE PS3 VERSION!!! And i hope to see the ANIME PLZ opening of runefactory oceans soon.

    Also, i tried harvest moon browser game… sadly, is not that good, really close to this “farm w/e” game in facebook, it was slighty better though.. but meh..

  • lostinblue

    Way better indeed.

  • shion16

    poor giant

  • Fonic

    Definitely better. More is more in this case, although I don’t dislike the old one.

  • HarryHodd

    Really nice boxart. Can’t wait to have this in my PS3 collection.

  • generic animu box art

  • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

    Old box art looks cropped on the Wii on the sides and new box art looks cropped on the PS3 at top.

    Why can’t they go with old box art for the PS3 and new one for the Wii?

  • PersonaBull

    I actually like the old box art better. There’s way too much going on in the new version. It’s a lot of pretty, but it’s too cluttered.

  • New Boxart looks amazing for the PS3, olde one looked better for the Wii

  • Wackoramaco87

    Both look great, though I have to admit I find myself leaning more toward the old box art, if only because it doesn’t seem quite as cluttered. That said, I hope to someday have the PS3 version as part of my collection! =D

  • puchinri

    I really like both covers, though I’m wondering if only those three girls being on the cover is at all significant? (Probably not…)

    Still can’t decide which version I want, either.

    • Vino (Tim N)

      They’re all sisters if I recall.

      • puchinri

        That’s the only part I remember too. Besides what seems to be their general job or interest (music, cooking and gardening). Although I wondered if they were plot relevant. The site does list them as main heroine, so I suppose they are more important (or favored) than the other bachelorettes and bachelors.

  • vadde939

    I’m really liking this new boxart. The old one looked a bit too plain to me.

  • PrinceHeir

    i might try this since it’s a part of the Harvest Moon series ^^

  • Vino (Tim N)

    That mass of pretty characters and art on one box is awesome.

  • Ah Rune factory. Your mix of farming and RPG’ness makes a tense farming management game even more hectic. At least let the timer be slower this time :D

    Oh and I bet North America and Europe will get the old version of the box art :D

  • Hope it gets localized soon~
    With Jap audio intact, of course~
