Start your new life in Rigbarth today with Rune Factory 5!

We’re excited to announce that Rune Factory 5 is now available across Europe and Australia on the Nintendo Switch system.

As the newest ranger for SEED, it’s your responsibility to protect the townsfolk from rowdy monsters and explore the mysterious events that are affecting the runes which govern the balance between humanity and nature!

Work with the people of Rigbarth to help the town flourish through farming, festivals and friendships and embark on a grand adventure. Venture into the vast wilderness with friendly townsfolk and unlock powerful and stylish link attacks that encourage teamwork and strategy.

Forge long-lasting friendships with the people of Rigbarth and get to know the eligible marriage candidates in town.

But don’t forget to take time out of your adventure to enjoy the gentler pace of town life. Tame monsters to serve as your helpful farmhands while you’re away or compete in cooking, crafting, and fishing contests. Forge long-lasting friendships with the people of Rigbarth and get to know the eligible marriage candidates in town. Fall in love, pop the question and start a family!

If you’re a fan of previous Rune Factory titles you will see some familiar faces and costumes within Rune Factory 5, as all players will receive outfits based on characters Aden and Sonja from Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny automatically in-game. Additionally, if you still have Rune Factory 4 Special save data on your Nintendo Switch™ you will unlock additional DLC outfits and see some familiar faces from Rune Factory 4 Special appear in town!
