Earlier in the week, we published an interview with Rune Factory series producer, Yoshifumi Hashimoto, where we discussed some of the improvements and evolutions introduced to the series in Rune Factory 3.

 

Naturally, we couldn’t resist asking Hashimoto-san about a potential Rune Factory game for the Nintendo 3DS, considering that Marvelous are already working on a Harvest Moon game for the system.

 

"There are certainly a lot of different things I could think of wanting to add. Since it’d be in 3D, I’d want to make it feel as if you are actually walking through this fantasy world," he told us. "I’d want to make farming a more realistic, 3D experience. Dating would have scenes entirely in 3D."

 

"I really can’t think of going one-by-one here; I know I’d want to go at it and put a lot of different things in," he continued. "Of course, if you’d like to see these things, please give Rune Factory 3 a try! If Rune Factory 3 succeeds in the West, it makes it a lot easier for us to consider making a new game in the future. I really hope you enjoy it!"
