    Hotdog, a new game! But will it surpass Animal Parade in animals, I wonder…

    Can’t really say I’m that hype for it.

    What I CAN say is that after the disappointment that was RF4 and its lack of any major changes, Rune Factory 5 better overhaul the series.

    If there’s one thing I like about this.

    It’s that there’s gonna be a return to the 3×3 squares of crops.

    It might be just me but I’ve disliked the freestyle single-seed per bag growing of say Tale of Two Towns/A Wonderful Life, ect. and the 2×4 style in ANB was kinda… weird. I think I just generally enjoy the classic 9 seeds to a bag thing and for some reason I like that there’s a return to it.

    OTHERWISE I really liked ANB so I enjoy that this is probably gonna use a similar engine to that otherwise. Looking forward to this!

      I’d rather it goes back to a more freeform approach, as in the SNES/GB style of tilling the land, rather than dumping dirt on the grass.

        Hmm, I can get that too! I more specify the 3×3 method because recent Harvest Moons have bucked the trend of 9 seeds coming in each bag. SNES/GB was always 9 seeds, so the best shape was always either a U or a circle, depending on if your game had the “jump over things” feature.

    Ooh… I like the character designs and the art style in this one!

    Was that really how an owl looks like..? It looks like a parrot, imho.

    Anyway, I’m really excited about this! I’m really liking the character design. I hope the other characters won’t disappoint. Hopefully, by the time I have a 3DS, this game would have an english version… Not! It’ll probably take longer, as it did with the previous title. But the wait won’t be hard, as the 3DS has a great-great-great library of games already.

    Oew this looks gooooood :)
    Just started with ANB so I can’t watch too many pretty pictures.
    I hope this one gets a faster release in Europe :)

    Oh wow. I adore the artwork

  • Adam Zaorski

    Now, when will we see it in US/EU dear fellow Japanese?

  • JuVu

    I’m sure I’m not the only one who saw Xillia’s Leia in that one picture, haha.

    Awww, those animals look so adorable. I’m sure they will look even lovelier on the walls of my cabin.

    Hmm. The art style looks a little “prettier” this time around. That pleases me.

    Even though I’m excited to see a new HM, I’m not as hyped right now with this information (especially compared to last night). But I do look forward to more information~.

    I’m also a bit more curious about when they’re going to bring HM back to home consoles, or if they even will for a while given they’re doing well enough on portables.

  • ChiffonCake

    Ah, there’s some nice art.
