Hakama’s Rune Factory 5 is now available for Nintendo Switch in North America courtesy of XSEED Games (with a March 25th release in Europe). Released in May 2021 for Japan, it sees players venturing to an all-new town and joining the peace-keeping organization SEED. Check out the launch trailer below.

If you’ve played any of the previous titles (like the recently re-released Rune Factory 4 Special), then you know what to expect. Build relationships with the different townsfolk, fulfill their requests and partake in activities like mining, farming and fishing. You’ll also venture on expeditions to take down monsters. There also 12 different companions and depending on how close you get, it’s possible to marry them.

Along with English voice-acting and localization, the Western release also adds the option for same-sex marriage, which has since been patched into the Japanese version. As for future updates, stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
