XSEED Games and Marvelous provided an update on the development for Rune Factory 5, announcing a delay into early 2022 for the Western release. A new gameplay trailer was revealed though and fortunately, the English localization is shaping up well. Check it out below.

Controlling a hero named Ares/Alice who suffers from memory loss (which is how Rune Factory 4 Special started as well), the player sets about helping the people of Rigbarth. Along with farming and fishing, one joins a band of rangers to fight off monsters. Combat sees some improvements especially with the addition of powerful combination attacks. You can also tame monsters which comes in handy during battles.

Rune Factory 5 will be releasing exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. It’s currently available in Japan so stay tuned for more gameplay in the coming months. In the meantime, Rune Factory 4 Special is coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC this Fall after releasing for Nintendo Switch last year.
