XSEED and Marvelous today unveiled a limited edition for Rune Factory 5 in North America (known as the “Earthmate Edition in the states) and Europe.
All copies will include a custom outer box featuring artwork from series illustrator Minako Iwasaki, a copy of the game in an exclusive steelbook case, large 5.8” by 8.2” softcover artbook with over 70 pages of character illustrations, concept art, and more, a ‘Melodies of Norad’ soundtrack CD featuring 15 songs specially selected from across the entire Rune Factory series, and 13 exclusive in-game costumes based on the marriage candidates (+ Dolce’s ghostly companion Pico) from Rune Factory.

Outside of the limited edition, the standalone version of Rune Factory 5 will be offered at retail and digitally for $59.99. Also planned is a Digital Deluxe version for the eShop which contains the same 13 in-game costumes from Rune Factory 4 as the limited edition. This will cost $69.99.
We’ll also mention that in Europe, participating retailers will offer a 8cm Wooly Plush Bag Tag as a pre-order bonus for both the standard and limited edition.
