Rune Factory 5 is the latest title in the Bokujō Monogatari spin-off series and released for Nintendo Switch in Japan in 2021 and in North America and Europe earlier this year. Players control an amnesiac protagonist who ends up in the small nature-surrounded town of Rigbarth. 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.
