Beloved Series Is Back With New Sequel, Will Make First Public Appearance at E3

Burlingame, Calif., June 8, 2010 – Natsume Inc., a worldwide developer
and publisher of family-oriented video games, announced today that
Rune Factory 3: A Fantasy Harvest Moon will be released for the
Nintendo DST later this year. The Rune Factory series combines the fun
and rewarding gameplay of Harvest Moon with the fantasy and excitement
of an action-RPG, offering Harvest Moon fans and traditional RPG
players the best of both worlds.

“We can’t wait to give fans their first look at this title at the
upcoming E3 tradeshow,” said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO at
Natsume. “This game has a powerful story, a compelling new cast of
characters, and a lot of exciting new features. It’s the best and
deepest Rune Factory yet!”

The people of Sharance and their horned Univir neighbors are embroiled
in a bitter conflict. An age-old hatred between humans and monsters
divides them. Micah is an adventurer with an unusual secret: he’s half
monster! He’ll have to unite the humans and the Univir in time to stop
the growing evil force that threatens to destroy them both!

Rune Factory 3 introduces a number of exciting new features to the Rune
Factory series: befriended villagers will now join you in battle and
lend you their unique skills, players can transform the main character
into his monster form to unleash a savage new arsenal of fighting
moves, and the game’s new multiplayer mode lets up to three players
work together to conquer unique dungeons packed with rare items and
fearsome monsters.

Rune Factory 3: A Fantasy Harvest Moon will make its first public
appearance at this month’s E3 show in the Los Angeles area and will
ship to retail later this year.
