until they get their hands on Rune Factory 2, and we wanted to give them a
little something special for being the first to order the game," said Hiro
Maekawa, President and CEO at Natsume. "Fans of Rune Factory and Harvest Moon

years, so we know that they will be excited to get their hands on this one and
add it to their collection."

series combines the fun and rewarding Harvest Moon gameplay that fans know and
love with the fantasy and excitement of an action-RPG, offering Harvest Moon
fans and traditional RPG players the best of both worlds.

Rune Factory 2 is set several years
after the first game. The evil Sechs Empire has been defeated, and the Kingdom
of Norad is once again at peace. Things may not stay that way for long, however,
as strange disturbances in the earth warn that a great evil is stirring. It’s up
to player to uncover this new threat to the land and bring peace to the kingdom
once more. Over the course of the story, players will build and develop a farm,
befriend townspeople, raise monsters, take on quests, and find a wife.

In a first for the Rune Factory
series, the story of Rune Factory 2 is multigenerational. Players begin the game
as Kyle, a strange man who comes to Alvarna Village.

Eventually, players will take on the
role of Kyle’s child, opening up a whole new adventure. It’s an innovative
feature that allows players to follow the story of their family and the
townsfolk over two generations!

Rune Factory 2 is rated E for
Everyone by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB).
