During today’s Nintendo Partner Direct, Xseed announced Rune Factory 5 is finally headed to the Nintendo Switch in 2021.
The trailer showed off some beautiful cinematics and describe what to expect from the newest entry in the Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons fantasy spin-off series: farming, fighting and falling in love.
“Build a new life amidst a grand adventure in this heartwarming RPG. As a young man or woman with no memories, players will get a fresh start in the rural town of Rigbarth as a peacekeeping ranger,” developers said. “In addition to protecting the town, players’ day-to-day lives will include harvesting crops, fishing in the river and participating in local festivals. They may even find a special someone to start dating, fall in love with … and get married to! A new battle system allows players to perform combo attacks with allies to take down monsters. Begin life anew in a fantasy world when Rune Factory 5 launches on Nintendo Switch in 2021.”
Rune Factory 4 has been one of my most played games across the Nintendo 3DS and Switch with the Special Edition. Fingers crossed we don’t see any additional delays on the title.
