Fantasy Violence, Mild Language, Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol

This is a farming simulation/role-playing game in which players assume the role of an adventurer who can performs quests, develop relationships, and pursue trades such as cooking and foraging. Players can explore dungeons and battle various enemy creatures (e.g., giant insects, slime monsters, and giant rodents) by using swords, axes, hammers, and magical attacks. Realistic sounds of battle include sword/axe swipes and cries of pain. During the course of the game, players can pursue relationships with female characters that may lead to courtship, marriage, and starting a family. Some female characters are depicted with provocative attire (e.g., exposed cleavage), while a sequence in a bathhouse contains a possible insinuation about female breast size. Patrons at a tavern sometimes consume wine, slur their speech, or make comments about alcohol ("...that first drink after work is the best). The expletive "pissed off" can sometimes be heard in the dialogue.

From the creators of Harvest Moon and Rune Factory for the DS comes the first installment of Rune Factory for a home console. In Rune Factory Frontier, you play as Laguna, who’s starting life in a completely new land. Your goal is to build up your village in classic Harvest Moon style (Rune Factory is an offshoot of that series), attracting new residents, and eventually earning the affections of some possible marriage targets.

Developed exclusively for Wii, Rune Factory: Frontier features stunning graphics and takes full advantage of the Wii’s unique controls to fully immerse players in the Rune Factory universe. Rune Factory: Frontier incorporates an open-ended structure that allows players to choose the type of game they wish to experience. Whether it’s growing crops, expanding the town, fighting (or befriending) monsters or even falling in love, the experience is unique to each player.
