The lights are on
In a posting on XSeed's official Facebook page, the publisher revealed that the 3DS game has been pushed back to sometime in September or October of this year.
At one time, the game was set for release in July, but that initial release date came and went. When asked by fans earlier this week about the new release date, XSeed replied, "We're dying to get it to you, but the game is absolutely massive and taking much longer to QA (play through the English for quality assurance) than we originally anticipated. Right now we could be looking at a late September or October release, but it will definitely be worth the wait."
Retailers are currently listing the game for a September 10 release. Below, you can check out the game's E3 trailer.
Our TakeIt's not too disappointing to hear that Rune Factory 4 is getting a small delay. The game will ultimately be better for it, and the North American fate of these niche titles are always in question, so to know that it is still coming is good news.

Aww man!! This was going to be my next 3DS game!!! Please don't release in October! Just release in August!! October is the month I start playing Pokemon X 3D nonstop!!!
I kinda figured it was coming out in September anyway. I went to gamestop the other day and when I pre ordered they said it was down for September and Amazon also said September for quite some time if I remember right.
I'm actually kind of glad it's delayed. Hopefully it will lead to a better game, and it'll give me more time to work on my backlog.
Somewhere, Kim is crying.
Don't really know why I love Rune Factory,but have played the stuffing out of the first and second one. Maybe because its really relaxing and fun. Personally, I found Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon not engaging enough. Got a tad bored of both. Now this has all of the farming, relationships, and superb art style of Harvest Moon but adds addicting and fun monster beat em up/collecting and exploration. Hopefully I will get a 3DS soon because the number of games(this one included) I want for the system is skyrocketing. Crossing my fingers and toes that I get one for Christmas.
I don't mind waiting a little bit more since there are too many games coming out in August as is. I'm glad they finally set the record straight though, because it was becoming a little concerning that we hadn't heard anything about it in a while.
i love the series
Not that disappointed. I have enough to play until September. And I would rather have a game go through QA longer than be released with a ton of bugs.
Hoping it comes out in september so i have SOME time to play it before juggling it and Pokemon X/Y for my playtime
Sigh, least it is still coming. September is not too far off.
