Rune Factory 4 Special and Rune Factory 5 are coming to Nintendo Switch

Farming and Families

[Update: Rune Factory 4 Special will launch in Japan July 25. Rune Factory 5 will launch in Japan in 2020. No western dates have been confirmed as of yet.]

During today’s Nintendo Direct presentation, Marvelous! announced two editions of the fantasy farming title, Rune Factory – a remaster and a brand new entry – are headed to Nintendo Switch.

Rune Factory 4 Special is a remastered version of the 2012 3DS title. Journey forth, harvest your crops, maybe even meet someone special? It was also announced that an all-new entry, Rune Factory 5 is currently in development for the hybrid console. This is great news for franchise fans, who’ve been waiting for quite some time for a sequel, to say the least.

Rune Factory 4 Special is coming to Nintendo Switch later in 2019.
