Rune Factory Frontier's story begins with the hero Raguna traveling to the village of Trampoli in search of his missing friend Mist. However, once he finds her, she reveals that she has been hearing the calls of someone in her dreams. Raguna investigates for her and discovers that the mysterious whale shaped island over the village not only can speak but is in danger of falling and destroying Trampoli. Now Raguna must solve the mysteries of Whale Island as well as explore Trampoli's dungeons to find a solution to the danger that plagues the village.

Rune Factory Frontier was the first of the series to be released on the Wii. Much like its Nintendo DS counterparts, you own a farm, can grow crops, befriend villagers, get married and fight in dungeons. One major difference in Frontier compared to the previous games is the introduction of the Runey system, a mini-ecosystem you must manage that can either help or hurt crop growth. This particular game reprises many familiar faces from the first game on the DS, including Mist, Rosetta, Melody, and Lara. However, there are also many new bachelorettes for you to choose from. Another feature added with this game are the animated cutscenes for events and first meetings with the girls. While there is voice acting in this game, not every line of dialogue is done.
