Rune Factory 4 Seemingly Coming to Europe

rune factory 4 10-2-14-1

Rune Factory 4 is the last game of the now shuttered Neverland Co., a studio that handled the entirety of the Rune Factory spinoff games that paralleled Marvelous’ other series, Harvest Moon.

Due to a multitude of reasons (but probably due to the closing of Neverland Co.), the game was only localized in North America, so our European fans were left out in the cold.

However, now we’ve caught wind (via NeoGAF) of the game being rated on the Germany USK board, meaning the game is probably going to get an official localization in continental Europe.

While there is no official confirmation from Marvelous/XSEED for the localization, rest assured we’ll hear something soon. We’ve reached out to XSEED Games to comment.

    I know I’ll probably get criticised for this, but does anybody still want this? I mean Look at what happened with Shin Megami Tensei IV, nothing good ever seems to happen to europe when it comes to niche games.

    Sure! RF3 was really popular in the west, and even though Neverland is no more, RF4 was their best selling game. I think it will do all right.
