Nintendo has revealed that Rune Factory 5 will now be launching on Switch in 2021.
Originally scheduled to launch in 2020, Rune Factory 5 is unsurprisingly the next chapter in the charming RPG series. Players will set off another grand adventure, taking on the role of a hero who has lost their memory and arrives in a small town.
Gameplay for the title has been shown off for the first time (see the trailer above) and we also have an official description and feature list for you a little further down the page.
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. 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.
