Marvelous has announced, via its latest fiscal year report, that its action RPG simulation adventure, Rune Factory 5, has sold over 500,000 units worldwide as of the end of March 2022. Congratulations to the publisher and development team for achieving such a significant milestone.
If you missed it, check out our review of Rune Factory 5, where we praised its gameplay systems while lamenting its shoddy performance.
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.
