Rune Factory 5 Blossoms In North America March 22nd

The Wait Is Almost Over

Rune Factory 5

Rune Factory 5 released earlier this year in Japan but fans in North America have been waiting patiently for the game. That wait will end soon. During today’s Nintendo Direct it was announced as coming March 22nd, 2022.

In the latest in this simulation/RPG combination you’ll set off on a big adventure. Grow your farm, fight fiendish monsters, and fall in love. The US trailer seems to suggest that you can now marry a same sex partner too, a first for the Rune Factory series. Here’s a few additional details provided by publisher XSEED Games:

● Adventure Awaits – Saddle a monster mount and head out into the vast, vibrant wilderness to explore tranquil forests, ancient ruins, and even the inside of a volcano!

●Gardener Guardian – Choose from seven weapon types and fight alongside up to three companions, then swap to farm tools to grow a wide variety of crops with monster farmhands.

●Never A Dull Moment – Compete in cooking, crafting, and fishing contests or invite a sweetheart to join you for stargazing and flower-viewing during one of Rigbarth’s many seasonal festivals.

●Find Your Special Someone – Date one of twelve eligible marriage candidates, learn more about them by completing their unique storyline, then pop the question and start a family!

You can check out a trailer for the announcement below. Will you be checking Rune Factory 5 out? Let us know in the comments.
