Watch: Fantasy and farming in Rune Factory

This article is over 17 years old and may contain outdated information

Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon is scheduled to come out sometime this month and as its release looms it should get extra attention. The concept of Rune Factory is to take the farming part from Harvest Moon and fuse medieval role playing elements in it. The hero swings a sword and farms, like a serf in Ultima. The sword has a purpose; you need it to battle beasts. However, you don’t always want to draw your blade. As seen in the trailer you can befriend beasts like the giant bull by walking up and petting them.
