Aden and Sonja are the official names of the playable characters, though you can re-name them if you wish. The game will have 30 different islands that can be explored and each has different seasons apart from one another, and players will traverse between islands with by riding on a giant rock monster named Ymir. Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of Natsume says that the “ocean setting will have players adventuring for hours, and the great characters will really help pull them into the world” which sounds exactly like what fans of the Rune Factory series are looking for.
