XSEED and Marvelous Games have announced a release date for their upcoming fantasy sim RPG title, Rune Factory 5, which will release on March 22nd, 2022. The protagonist is a character who has found themselves in a small town without their memory, but enough skill to be recruited into a group called SEED, responsible for keeping the peace. This means investigating dungeons and fighting monsters, but they also spend time growing crops and mining for ore, or even helping out during the town festivals.
- Adventure Awaits – Saddle a monster mount and head out into the vast, vibrant wilderness to explore tranquil forests, ancient ruins, and even the inside of a volcano!
- Gardener Guardian – Choose from seven weapon types and fight alongside up to three companions, then swap to farm tools to grow a wide variety of crops with monster farmhands.
- Never A Dull Moment – Compete in cooking, crafting, and fishing contests or invite a sweetheart to join you for stargazing and flower-viewing during one of Rigbarth’s many seasonal festivals.
- Find Your Special Someone – Date one of twelve eligible marriage candidates, learn more about them by completing their unique storyline, then pop the question and start a family!
Rune Factory 5 is releasing exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on March 22nd, 2022.
