Marvelous Europe announced today that Rune Factory 4 Special will be launched on the 28th February on Nintendo Switch physically as well as digitally from the Nintendo Store. It was originally on the Nintendo 3DS and it is the first time the game franchise has appeared on the Nintendo Switch.
The game will feature both English and Japanese audio and text localisation in English, French and German.
Experience the world-famous fantasy farming adventure like never before, with HD graphics in fully remastered form. The joys of growing crops, catching fish, and raising monsters await players old and new, while seasoned explorers will be delighted to discover an updated opening movie. Other farm-fresh features include Newlywed mode, which introduces special episodes about living the married life and new in-game cutscenes.
Additionally, an even higher difficulty mode for expert players to take on a challenge that’s truly worthy of their skills.
In this standalone story, players choose to play as a male or female hero and will encounter a diverse cast of potential suitors and other loveable townsfolk. As the newly-appointed prince or princess, royal duties are fulfilled by issuing orders to help the town prosper, or by taking a more relaxed approach to governance by raising crops and helping townsfolk. Should some dungeon adventuring be on the day’s itinerary, a vast array of weapons along with magic can be crafted or bought for battle against dangerous foes—companions or friendly monsters can also join to aid the player during their travels.
