XSEED Games previously had this one lined up for sometime in 2021
Rune Factory 5 originally launched on Nintendo Switch in Japan on May 20, and it was set to follow in the west sometime in 2021. Those plans have changed, however, and publisher XSEED Game has since pushed it back to early 2022.
XSEED plans to showcase Rune Factory 5 and more games during today's Future Games Show, which will take place at 4:00pm Pacific Time.
Here's how the publisher describes the latest entry:
Set off on a grand adventure in a fantasy world with the latest entry in the Rune Factory simulation RPG series. After losing their memory, the hero lands in a small town blessed by nature. There, they are recruited into a band of peacekeeping rangers, and their new life begins. In addition to their normal duties, the hero can farm the land, cast a line into the nearby river, and so much more! Team up with townsfolk to battle monsters and unleash powerful combination attacks—just one of the features new to the series. The stage is set, and the curtain rises on an exciting new adventure in Rune Factory 5!
