RFF Screens, SV Updates
Hi. I'm a bit late. Sorry. D:

Bob. Bob! Actually, his name isn't Bob yet; it's technically Kazan, but he's the same as Bob from Save the Homeland. You can see him to the right. He's just been confirmed as a villager in Sugar Village & Everyone's Wish.

Tim. Also, Tim. He's the little boy who hunts for treasure in STH. He's be confirmed as a character too. You can see a picture of him in the link.

Horse Races. They've confirmed that there will be horse races in Sugar Village as well. If you scroll all the way down to the bottom of the link, you can see a small ...

Rune Factory Frontier next week!
Just in case you've been living under a rock for the past month, XSEED has sent out an email reminding everyone that Rune Factory Frontier is almost here:

"Rune Factory: Frontier will start shipping to retail stores across North America on March 17, exclusively for Wii.

This new installment of the Rune Factory series is the first of the Rune Factory titles to be developed specifically for a home console. Developers capitalized on the Wii's unique controls, the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to give players an authentic, life-like experience.

Rune Factory: Frontier is rated "E10+" for Everyone 10 and over by the ESRB.

To see how the Wii Remote can be used to enhance the gameplay and find out more information about the game, please visit

So get out there and preorder it!

RFF Preview, NP Scores
Preview. Hi guys. There was an Rune Factory Frontier preview from a few days ago that I missed. It's from OMG Nintendo.

RF Reviews
Now that Rune Factory is out in Europe, reviews for the game are coming out all over again. Most of you have already played Rune Factory---and even if you haven't, you've already heard about the numerous reviews it's had in the past lamenting about how great a game it is, and how well it implements both the farming and RPG aspect so well.

Expect pretty much the same thing here, but read if you're interested:

Harvest Moon comes to Wiiware! + RFF Interviews
Wii? Check. PSP? Check. DS? Double check. So which system are the Harvest Moon teams targetting next? ...Why not Wiiware!

Marvelous/Famitsu has announced that "Bokujou Monogatari: Makiba no Omise" will be the first HM game to find its way into Wii's growing selection of Wiiware games. "Makiba no Omise" actually translates roughly into "Ranch Store". So as you might guess, the game will center mostly around running your very own shop! It looks like you'll be able to pick what kind of business you'd like to run (ice cream, fruits & veggies, or even easter eggs), decorate your store, and send picutres of it to your friends. Most of the tasks in the game though will be in the form of mini-games. And don't be surprised if you see your favorite HM characters dropping by to shop around.

The game is set to release in Japan April 28th. Players will be able to purchase the game through the Wii Shop channel for 1500 points. Hopefully everyone else around the world can get in on this new HM action as soon as possible. Until then, like always, we'll keep you guys updated as we hear more about the game! -Link to the official Japanese site here-"

In RF news, Rune Factory Frontier's producer Yoshifumi Hashimoto has been interviewed recently with both IGN and N-Sider. No real ground-breaking announcements, but they're both pretty interesting reads. Check them out here (IGN) and here (NSider)!

Sugar Village Update!
First, two new characters in Sugar Village. :O

Basil. He's a port from Save the Homeland too; he was Parsley. You can see a picture of him here. We'll have his translation up for you as soon as we can, but he's probably the same as in Save the Homeland---romantic, laidback traveler type.

Chester. Chester's a new character! Don't have his description yet, but he dresses like a wizard! He's the one you see to the right.

Video Clips. They added a video clip! If you scroll all the down to the bottom, you can see the hero mining.

Harvest Festival. They added a small update about the Harvest Festival. You can dance with the girl you like in it, as shown in the screenshot to the ...

Another HM?! Neogaf reports that in the March 2009 issue of Famitsu, there's apparently an upcoming (tentative) title for the Wii called Harvest Moon ... Farm Store. Yep. HM Farm Store.
