A western release date for Rune Factory 3 Special could soon be on the horizon as the game has recently been rated by the Entertainment Software Rating Board. The ESRB gave the farming life-sim game a Teen rating due to themes of fantasy violence, mild suggestive themes, and the use of alcohol. Rune Factory 3 Special has already received a firm release date in Japan with the game arriving in the land of the rising sun on 2nd March. We will let you know once a western release date has been announced by XSEED and Marvelous.
“This is a role-playing game in which players assume the role of an amnesiac fighter trying to settle disputes between humans and monsters. Players explore environments (e.g., towns, dungeons, forests), interact with characters, complete missions, (e.g., resource gathering, farming), and battling various monsters (e.g., goblins, mushrooms, giant spiders). Characters use swords, axes, and magic attacks to defeat monsters in melee combat; battles are highlighted by impact sounds, dwindling health bars/hit points, and screen-shaking effects. Some female characters are depicted in swimsuits that reveal moderate amounts of cleavage; the dialogue contains some innuendo (e.g., “Ahem! My eyes are up here“; “I wasn’t ogling you”; “You aren’t…getting up to anything too kinky…”). During the course of the game, players can obtain and give bottles of wine, causing recipients/players’ character to fall asleep after drinking.”ESRB rating details
