It’s been nearly a decade and a half since Rune Factory made its debut as a more action RPG-focused spin-off of Harvest Moon, but the series has been dormant for quite some time. While we wait for Rune Factory 5, Rune Factory 4 Special brings the beloved franchise to Switch to ease people in. It’s every bit of great as you remember it to be on the 3DS, and in fact, outside of having one less screen available, it essentially carries with it the same content and style from 2012. This keeps things nostalgic and familiar, but also shows off its age.

Rune Factory 4 Special is finally available in the west, and XSEED has issued a new launch trailer to celebrate. View it below.

XSEED has readied a couple of new trailers to highlight the bachelors and bachelorettes of Rune Factory 4 Special. Both can be found below.

Here’s an overview of Dead or School, along with a trailer:

A new video has surfaced with the first 40 minutes of Rune Factory 4 Special’s gameplay on Switch. Viewers will find that the in-game text is available in English, so it should be pretty easy to follow along. The game will release on February 25, 2020.

Rune Factory 4 Special originally came out in Japan last July. Meanwhile, North America and Europe are getting the game at the end of next month. Some fans have been wondering why the wait has been so long, especially given that Rune Factory 4 did previously see an English release on 3DS. In a blog post, XSEED explained the situation.

A lot of factors were involved in the new release of Rune Factory 4 Special. XSEED pointed to a change in localization programming tools since the 3DS days, needing to review the entire script, the addition of French and German text, support for dual Japanese and English audio, and fixing other issues and bugs.

XSEED wrote in a blog post:
