XSEED Games has announced that Rune Factory 4 Special, which released for Nintendo Switch last year in February, is now officially available for PS4, Xbox One, PC and playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S as well. The game will normally cost you $29.99, but is currently 10% off through December 20th (on PlayStation that deal is exclusive to PS Plus members). Plus, this new port of the game contains the “Another Episode” DLC for free and doesn’t require a separate download. Down below you can find a brand new launch trailer and read a little bit more about the game.
Rune Factory 4 Special brings RPG action, farming, and life simulation together in a single package, allowing players to create a fulfilling routine for themselves in the town of Selphia. Playing as the appointed prince or princess of the town, Earthmates can forge their own destiny, whether that means a quiet life working the fields, building close relationships with the townsfolk, or delving into dungeons with the wide array of weapons and magical powers at their command. As Earthmates deepen their relationship with the residents of Selphia, they can even get married to one of the 12 eligible candidates.
In addition to the base game, the title also includes the ‘Another Episode’ DLC, which adds a series of illustrated storybook-style episodes narrated by the game’s 12 marriage candidates and Selphia’s lovable guardian dragon Ventuswill.
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.
This updated version of the original Nintendo 3DS title released in 2013 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.
