Rune Factory 5 Launching in March
XSEED Games and Marvelous Europe announced western release dates for Rune Factory 5. The title will release for Nintendo Switch on March 22, 2022, in North America and on March 25, 2022, in Europe. XSEED Games also revealed that the game’s western release will make all twelve marriage candidates available for players regardless of gender for the first time in the series.
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 a small nature-surrounded town. 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.
