Rune Factory 5 | Male Main Character

A while back we were given an extremely short and vague teaser with confirmation that Rune Factory 5 was in the works. Now Marvelous and XSEED have finally shown off the game during today’s mini Nintendo Direct. Us fans in the West can expect to see Rune Factory 5 on Nintendo Switch, sometime next year in 2021. A more specific date has not been announced at this time. You can check out the new gameplay trailer down below and read a little bit more about the game.
