Rune Factory 5 5

Rune Factory 5 takes the series to new heights as it opens the world through various means of exploration. Players can run through dungeons, fight monsters, and meet new characters from a new 3D perspective. Typically, these games are played with an over-the-top view of the town and characters, but this latest entry seems to ‘switch’ it up to provide a new experience to players.

Returning to the game are relationships. Players will choose a male or female protagonist to be their job as a peacekeeping ranger. Aside from protecting the town, players will need to look after the crops and fish for food. They will meet a handful of NPCs throughout the adventure that they can fall in love with and marry in-game. The title also features a new battle system that is more action-focused and a traveling system with familiar companions.

Rune Factory 5 is now available on Nintendo Switch.
