Is Rune Factory 4 a "long term" game like Animal Crossing? (Download vs. Retail?)

Default Is Rune Factory 4 a "long term" game like Animal Crossing? (Download vs. Retail?)

I'm wondering if RF4 is the kind of game you play everyday for months, like Animal Crossing is. I want to know if it's a good idea to download it so I won't have to switch cartridges if I start a new game. I don't play more than one game at a time, so if RF4 is a game that ends normally (unlike AC) I will just get the cartridge.

Thanks.

Rune Factory 4 is similar to Animal Crossing but it isn't real time.

One in-game "day" lasts maybe 30 minutes of real time so it's a lot more flexible that way.

I spent quite a lot of time playing it so for what you're describing it might be best to download it.

I agree with Kinvara. Rune Factory 4 is a lot of fun and I have the download version from the eShop.

Cheers,

yeah it's a long term game. at first i thought it was just about the story, but you're given plenty of things to do and relationships to pursue. the non-real time clock is kind of useful to me, as i can just pick up on my daily duties whenever i want.
