Marvelous Europe has announced via a launch trailer the release of Rune Factory 5 on Nintendo Switch in early 2022.

The latest installment of the beloved RPG/Life simulator will recieve physical and digital release.

From the Press Release:

In Rune Factory 5, choose between male and female protagonists, Ares and Alice, and embark on an adventure from the town of Rigbarth as a ranger for the peacekeeping force known as SEED, in a quest to recover lost memories. Explore vast dungeons, defeat vicious monsters, nurture nearby farmland and develop relationships with various characters to find true peace and happiness within the town of Rigbarth.

Newcomers and fans alike will be able to experience refined action-RPG combat, with eight different weapons, including Dual Blades, Spear and Axe available to master, alongside iconic features such as farm management, town quests and festivals. Whether you decide to protect the town from an onslaught of monsters, aid the townspeople with their troubles, or embrace your green thumb dreams, Rune Factory 5 will offer an adventure like no other when it launches on Nintendo Switch in early 2022.

In the sleepy border town of Rigbarth, a shift is happening. Mysterious events are unfolding, affecting the runes that govern the balance between humanity and nature… 

As the newest recruit for the peacekeeping organisation, SEED, you play an important role in maintaining harmony in the threatened Norad Kingdom.

With no memories of your past and with little to show for your experience, you must earn your stripes. Work with the people of Rigbarth to help the town flourish, forging friendships and making your mark as you go.

As the balance of peace begins to shift, it is time to prove yourself. With your new friends from Rigbarth at your side, set off on a grand adventure in this fantasy world to unravel the mystery befalling the land, embracing your inner power to halt the descent into chaos.

Game Features:

  • Fast-paced action RPG combat: Party up with the people of Rigbarth to unlock powerful and stylish combination attacks in fast-paced action RPG combat that encourages teamwork and strategy.
  • Forge friendships and find love: Forge friendships, fall in love and even marry the townsfolk who live and work alongside you in Rigbarth.
  • Relaxing life simulation gameplay: Take time out of your adventure to enjoy the slower pace of town life, with everything from gentle farming to grand festivals.
  • Vibrant anime visuals: A vibrant anime style is brought to life in this rich and colourful 3D world, enhanced with fully animated cutscenes
