Marvelous Europe and XSEED Games have announced that Rune Factory 4 Special will be launching on Nintendo Switch both physically and digitally on 28th February 2020 in Europe and slightly earlier on the 25th in North America.

The game - an HD remaster of the RPG simulation title that previously appeared on 3DS - has been treated to a brand new release date trailer (as seen above). A press release covering the announcement also tells us that the new Switch release will feature both English and Japanese audio as well as text localisation in English, French and German.

If you're after a digital copy of the game, you can actually go ahead and pre-purchase it from the Switch eShop today for $39.99 / £32.99 / €39,99 / $59.95 AUD. Doing so will grant you the Swimsuit Day DLC as a bonus - a digital pre-order and physical Archival Edition exclusive. Early buyers will also get the 'Another Episode' DLC for free at launch; it'll then go on sale for £4.49 / €4,99 / $7.50 AUD starting from 26th March.
