About Rune Factory 4 Special:
As a young man or woman falling from an airship and landing in the town of Selphia, in Rune Factory 4 Special the hero is charged with protecting the town and bettering the lives of its people. As the newly-appointed prince or princess, royal duties are fulfilled by issuing orders to help the town prosper, or by taking a more relaxed approach to governance by raising crops and helping townsfolk. Should some dungeon adventuring be on the day’s itinerary, a vast array of weapons along with magic can be crafted or bought for battle against dangerous foes—companions or friendly monsters can also join to aid the player during their travels. And, of course, there’s a huge cast of lovable townsfolk, including 12 potential suitors to woo and marry.
A World of Possibility - Grow crops, raise monsters, catch fish, cook up tasty dishes, and craft powerful equipment. Live your life however you choose!
Adventure Awaits - Venture outside the town gates to explore dangerous dungeons. Use swords, spears, staves, and other weapons and magic to personalize your battle tactics as formidable monsters await in trap-laden dungeons. Invite the townsfolk, develop friendships with monsters, and grow stronger together.
Expand Your Social Circle - Become friends (or more than friends) with a charming and interactive cast of characters, and breathe life into the town with seasonal festivals and competitions.
Live Happily Ever After - Play through a special story alongside your spouse in Newlywed Mode and fall in love with your favorites all over again! The 13 fully-voiced "Another Episode" bonus stories narrated by the marriage candidates (and Ventuswill) are also included.
