Rune Factory may not be the biggest franchise around, but fans have been clamoring for its return. It’s been several years since the series’ last entry, Rune Factory 4. As we found out in this week’s Nintendo Direct, Rune Factory is coming back in a big way starting this year.

Rune Factory 4 Special kicks things off for 2019. The Switch version of the 3DS title drops later this year in the west, but Japan has a confirmed release date of July 25.

Rune Factory 5 was also announced in this week’s Nintendo Direct. Unfortunately, almost no information has been said about the game thus far. The Nintendo Direct didn’t mention it, but we do actually know that it’s due out sometime in 2020. A teaser site can be found here.

Earlier in the week, Game Informer senior editor Imran Khan stopped by the Kinda Funny Games Daily show. Khan ended up sharing what sounds like a pretty interesting rumor regarding Nintendo reviving a “dead and buried” game.

He stated:

Months after waiting for the next general Nintendo Direct, Nintendo finally delivered this week. A bunch of announcements were made throughout the 35-minute presentation both big and small.

As far as entirely new stuff goes, the Nintendo Direct started with the reveal of Super Mario Maker 2. The show ended with a bang as well thanks to the announcement of the Zelda: Link’s Awakening remake on Switch. That was far from all, as we also found out about the brand new PlatinumGames title Astral Chain. Other announcements included BoxBoy! + BoxGirl!, Tetris 99, Oninaki, Dragon Quest XI S’ official localization and release window, Rune Factory 4 Refine and Rune Factory 5, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, Assassin’s Creed III Remastered, Unravel Two, and more.

Now that we’re a few days removed from the Nintendo Direct, how are you feeling about the presentation? Were you happy with what was shown, or were you left feeling disappointed? Do you have any personal highlights? Let us know in the comments below.

Update: Thanks to everyone who has expressed interest in joining our team! There was a massive response – many more people wrote in than I was expecting. I’ve been sending out a bunch of email to those who submitted an email over the past week or so, but still have a little ways to go. The Nintendo Direct and me being sick also threw a bit of a wrench into things. Thanks for your patience, and I’ll respond to everyone ASAP. Also, please note that we will no longer accept further entries.


You know what we haven’t done in a long time? Add some new reviewers to the team. The last time we did this was three years ago! With all of the Switch games coming out these days (don’t sleep on those eShop-only titles), we really need to fix that.

I don’t want to put a number on it, but we’re probably looking to bring in a couple of new reviewers. If you’re at least 18 years old, are interested in possibly reviewing games for Nintendo Everything, and would like to learn more, shoot us an email by visiting our contact form. Choose the “Site Position” option and please tell us your age as well as which part of the world you’re located in. Please note that this is an unpaid position. We’ll follow up as soon as possible with each person.

Thanks all!
