XSEED Games revealed yesterday that Rune Factory 4 Special will hit Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in Fall 2021. This release will mark the first time that the farming RPG series hits PC.
This version of game is currently available for Nintendo Switch and it has been well received so far. The original Rune Factory 4 was released for the Nintendo 3DS almost a decade ago, so I’d bet this Special edition will run on a wide range of PC configurations, which is excellent news considering the current semiconductor shortage.
The curtain rises on a beautiful sunny day, as the hero tumbles from the heavens…
Luckily, a friendly dragon is there to break their fall. But, although uninjured, the hero can remember only their name. Under the auspices of the dragon Ventuswill, the hero comes to live in the local castle and, as a newly designated ruler, begins their life anew while developing the town, making difficult decisions, and cultivating the soil.
One day while out exploring their newfound home, the hero encounters a monstrous butterfly. However, after vanquishing this massive foe, a girl lies on the ground in its place. Why did the monster turn into a person? From these mysterious beginnings, the hero’s search for the truth will lead to a grand adventure that will shake the very foundations of their world…and draw them closer to the secret buried in their own lost memories.
