Rune Factory 4 Special Game's E3 Trailer Streamed
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
XSEED Games began streaming an E3 trailer on Wednesday for Rune Factory 4 Special, a remastered Nintendo Switch version of Rune Factory 4.
XSEED Games and Marvelous will release the game in the West this year. The game will launch in Japan on July 25.
In addition to revealing the remaster, a Nintendo Direct presentation also confirmed in February that Rune Factory 5 is in development.
Developer Neverland released Rune Factory 4 for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan in July 2012, and XSEED Games released the game in North America in October 2013. Neverland filed for bankruptcy in 2013 and the release was canceled in Europe.
The Rune Factory series combines RPG elements such as dungeon-crawling with farming game elements such as raising animals (in this case monsters). In Rune Factory 4, the player is a prince or princess who can manage a village. The new version will offer new stories about "newlywed" life, after the player marries one of the townspeople.
