Rune Factory 4 Special opens with a young man or woman falling from an airship and landing in the town of Selphia. Appointed as the local regent by mistake, 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.

Developed by Marvelous Inc. and published by Marvelous Europe Limited, Rune Factory 4 Special will launch in Europe and Australia on 7th December 2021 for the PS4™ system, Xbox One, and globally on Windows PC via Steam and Windows Store.

This game has been rated PEGI 12, USK 6 and PG in Australia and New Zealand.
