Wave hello

Natsume has confirmed its PS3 version of Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny (formerly Rune Factory: Oceans) will be fully playable at E3 next week.

While little new information was given in the announcement, we expect to see a multitude of screenshots, videos and hands-on reports during E3's run from 7th to 9th June.

The first home console entry in the series, Rune Factory Frontier on Wii, currently sits on a positive 79 Metascore with 27 favourable reviews, so with the added capabilities of the PlayStation 3 and Move its HD incarnation should be even better.

We'll have plenty more farming news next week.

This next chapter in the popular Rune Factory series makes its debut at this year's E3. The game will be coming to both the PlayStation®3 and Nintendo Wii. In Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny, players take control of the giant golem Ymir to cross vast seas, uncover fertile farmlands, battle dangerous monsters, and discover dungeons packed with treasure and danger! An ocean of possibilities awaits!
