About Rune Factory 5
In the sleepy border town of Rigbarth, a shift is happening. Mysterious events are unfolding, affecting the runes that govern the balance between humanity and nature…
As the newest recruit for the peacekeeping organisation, SEED, you play an important role in maintaining harmony in the threatened Norad Kingdom. With no memories of your past and with little to show for your experience, you must earn your stripes. Work with the people of Rigbarth to help the town flourish, forging friendships and making your mark as you go.
As the balance of peace begins to shift, it’s time to prove yourself. With your new friends from Rigbarth at your side, set off on a grand adventure in this fantasy world to unravel the mystery befalling the land, embracing your inner power to halt the descent into chaos.
- Fast-paced action RPG combat: Venture into the vast, vibrant wilderness with friends from Rigbarth by your side to unlock powerful and stylish link attacks that encourage teamwork and strategy.
- Forge friendships and find love: Forge friendships, fall in love and even marry the townsfolk who live and work alongside you in Rigbarth, including same-sex marriage for the first time in the series.
- Relaxing life simulation gameplay: Take time out of your adventure to enjoy the gentler pace of town life. Compete in cooking, crafting, and fishing contests or invite your sweetheart to join you for stargazing during one of Rigbarth’s many seasonal festivals.
- Fantasy farming taken to new heights: Grow a wide variety of crops in the field or on a dragon’s back and tame monsters to serve as your helpful farmhands.
