XSEED Games announced a while ago that Rune Factory 4 Special would be getting ported to PlayStation, Xbox and PC. Now they’ve finally revealed a date for when those ports will be coming out. Rune Factory 4 Special will be launching on PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows PC (via Steam and the Microsoft Store), this upcoming December 7th. They state that the game will be available digitally for $29.99. If you never got the chance before to play this beloved Rune Factory title, next month is a great opportunity to check it out however you like. This enhanced version of the game originally released on Nintendo Switch early last year. XSEED also mentions that the PlayStation, Xbox and PC versions of the game will contain the Another Episode DLC at no extra cost. This DLC comes with a collection of storybook-style episodes narrated by the game’s marriage candidates, in addition to Ventuswill. Plus, it’s fully voiced in both English and Japanese. Feel free to check out the new launch date announcement trailer down below.

About Rune Factory 4 Special

Rune Factory 4 Special opens with a young man or woman falling from an airship and landing in the town of Selphia. Appointed the local regent by mistake, the hero is charged with protecting the town and bettering the lives of its people. 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. And, of course, there’s a huge cast of lovable townsfolk, including 12 potential suitors to woo and marry.

Rune Factory 4 Special is a remastered version of the critically acclaimed RPG simulation title that launched on Nintendo 3DS in 2013. This updated version comes with extra content such as ‘Newlywed Mode,’ self-contained adventures that unlock after marrying one of the game’s eligible candidates, and a “Hell” difficulty level for players seeking a true challenge.
