XSEED Hosting Rune Factory 5 Preview Stream February 10; First 2 Gameplay Hours

Publisher XSEED has announced that they will be hosting a live stream for the upcoming localized release of Rune Factory 5 on February 10, 2022, at 3 PM PT/ 6 PM ET via their official Twitch channel. As a result, curious onlookers and prospective players can get a peek of the title’s first two in-game hours.

You can view the tweet initially announcing this upcoming stream below:

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 releasing for the west for Nintendo Switch on March 22, 2022.
