Rune Factory 5: Release Date, Gameplay, Bachelors, Bachelorettes, Pre Order, Trailer And More

Rune Factory 5 was released in Japan earlier this year.

Rune Factory 5 will be making its way over to the UK and we have all of the information you will need to know.

The role-playing simulation series was launched in Japan last May for the Nintendo Switch already as development for an EU version of the game continues.

It was up in the air for some time whether there would be a fifth edition of Rune Factory following the bankruptcy of the original developers Neverland Co back in 2013, with Japanese developers Marvelous taking the reigns five years later.

In what has been described as a "heartwarming RPG", the rural town of Rigbarth is the location for the game with players taking control of a peacekeeping ranger, taking on mythical beasts as well as more mundane tasks such as harvesting crops.

Shortly after its release in Japan, Gematsu reported that Rune Factory 5 topped the charts with 102,853 retail copies sold, and Xseed will hoping for similar figures, if not better, when the game arrives in the UK.

Enough talk! Here is everything that we know about Rune Factory 5 so far:
