Rune Factory 4 clocks in next month

Rune Factory 4 will arrive in a week's time, having come through a protracted quality assurance check. Publisher XSEED made sure everything was up to scratch before dating the 3DS game for October 1, when it will be available at retail and on the eShop for $40.

The game received a warm reception in Japan, shifting 150,000 copies within a few months to become the series' best seller. Developer Neverland will hope to build on that when the farming-adventuring hybrid comes North America and Europe.
