Marvelous' American subsidiary publisher XSEED Games describes the games:
Series Director Shiro Maekawa joined Sato-san to reveal the first footage of a new spinoff in the Rune Factory series, PROJECT DRAGON. Building upon the central theme of “East and West”, PROJECT DRAGON is set in the “Land of the East,” which has long been referenced but never shown in the series, where Earthmates will explore new lands and communities with Japanese-styled design influences. Additionally, Maekawa-san confirmed that Rune Factory 6 is also in development and will take place in the western continent of Adonea, with both upcoming titles representing the East and West.
Rune Factory 3 Special, the remake of Rune Factory 3, launched for the Switch in Japan on March 3. XSEED Games will release the game in the West on September 5 for both Switch and PC via Steam.
XSEED Games released Marvelous' Rune Factory 5 game in July 2022 for Switch and PC via Steam.
