The next DS instalment in the Harvest Moon series has been confirmed for a US release.
Rune Factory 2: A Fantasy Harvest Moon is said to feature "a unique blend of elements from the world of Harvest Moon and that of a fantasy RPG".
Your task is to bring peace to the Kingdom of Norad, and along the way you must build a farm, make friends, complete quests, raise monsters and find yourself a wife. You'll start out playing as Kyle, a stranger visiting Alvarna Village. Later on you play as his child and embark on a whole new adventure.
Rune Factory 2 will go on sale in the US this "fall". A European release has yet to be confirmed and probably won't be for another 18 years, seeing as Rune Factory 1 isn't out here until September.
