More Rune Factory 5 Characters Revealed
Marvelous provided a new update for Rune Factory 5, introducing six more characters appearing in the game. The first two characters are Lucy and Cecil, who are both marriage candidates in the game. Lucy is Priscilla’s childhood friend and tries to prevent her from getting into danger. She is quite active and competitive. Cecil is Martin’s younger brother and an aspiring detective. His detective aspirations come from a desire to find his missing parents.
The other four characters are Simone, Terry, Hina, and Julian. Simone is both the town’s mayor and doctor, who enjoys the confidence of the town and likes testing new medicines. Terry is a detective who enjoys chasing mysteries. Hina is a beast girl who gets rescued by the protagonist and is quite impulsive. Finally, Julian is Lucy’s younger brother and likes exploring but tends to get lost.
Rune Factory 5 is the latest title in the Bokujō Monogatari spin-off series and combines the parent series’ farming sim elements with action RPG combat and exploration. The game sees the amnesiac protagonist ending up in the nature-surrounded town of Rigberth. They elect to join the town guard — known as Seed — to help protect the peace, spending their time adventuring with companions, growing crops on the farm, fishing, and building relationships with the townspeople. Rune Factory 5 will launch in Japan for Nintendo Switch on May 20, 2021, and is expected to release in North America and Europe sometime in 2021.
