Rune Factory 4 Special reveals Japanese limited edition set

Live stream planned for April 4

Marvelous! has revealed details on a nifty special edition coming to Japan for the upcoming Nintendo Switch remaster of 2012 3DS title Rune Factory 4. The set launches alongside the standard edition on Japan on July 25, though the west is yet to receive a specific release date.

The “Memorial Box” includes a copy of Rune Factory 4 Special for Nintendo Switch, a Memorial Book featuring notes and artwork from the Rune Factory series, a double-disc “Kyun Secret Private CD” set, and finally a download code for an additional event, which is none-too-subtly titled “Everyone in Swimsuits”. Don’t ask me. The Memorial Box costs around ¥9,500, or roughly $85 USD, and is available to pre-order from Japanese retailers, there’s no word on whether it will be made available in the west.

In related news, Marvelous! will host a special live stream tomorrow, April 4, entitled “Rune Factory Channel: New Fantasy Life Support Special”. Scheduled to take place at 20:00 JST, the stream can be watched over at the publisher’s YouTube channel.

Rune Factory 4 Special launches on Switch in Japan July 25, with North American and European releases expected to follow later in the year.
