Natsume Inc., a worldwide developer and publisher of family-oriented video games, today launches the next entry in a series of digital releases for the PlayStation Network. Originally released in 2011, Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny is the sole entry of the Rune Factory series on the PlayStation 3. Tides of Destiny’s launch continues a year-long campaign that was promised during E3 2012 to provide numerous classic Natsume titles on the PSN, a promise which will extend to this year’s E3 showing.
“Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny has been a fan favorite since its launch, and has been a much requested addition to our digital catalogue,” said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO at Natsume. “We’re excited to show the media the fruit of the past year’s promise to provide more digital titles at next month’s E3 Expo.”
Aden and Sonja, two lifelong friends, live a tranquil life on Fenith Island until they’re struck by a mysterious curse: they awaken to find both of their souls are now trapped in the same body! On top of this unusual calamity, the Fenith Island they knew is gone, replaced by a strange island populated with unfamiliar faces. Only by exploring this new world will they be able to solve the mystery of this curse and save their beloved island. During the course of their journey, Aden and Sonja will be aided by a colorful cast of characters, as well as take command of a towering golem, Ymir. Using their newfound giant friend, they’ll cross vast seas, discover hidden islands and dungeons packed with riches, and battle fearsome monsters of the deep!
