Rune Factory 4’s journey to Europe has been a long one. Zen United originally planned to release the game like Senran Kagura Burst in stores, but even though Xseed localized the game technical obstacles led to the cancellation of the PAL release.
Neverland, the developer behind the Rune Factory series, was closed after Rune Factory 4’s release in the Americas, but before the European version was finished. Behind the scenes, Xseed searched for another developer to finish the PAL localization. And next week, European gamers will finally get to play Rune Factory 4!
Rune Factory 4 will be released exclusively as a Nintendo eShop game on December 11. The game will cost £24.99, €29.99 or $49.95 AUD depending on which territory you’re in.
