Harvest Moon's RPG spin-off series Rune Factory has been a Nintendo-only affair in the West so far, but Japanese PS3 owners have recently got to grips with Rune Factory: Oceans. So far there's been no word on a Western translation for the HD, Move-enabled farming RPG, but Natsume has just dropped a fairly big hint the game is coming North America.

The publisher's pre-E3 press release mentioned it would be unveiling:

A highly-anticipated unannounced title for PS3 and Wii.

As Rune Factory: Oceans is heading to both formats, and Natsume has been bringing Harvest Moon games to gamers since the series started, the signs are good that the next entry in the series will receive an English translation. We'll keep you updated.
