Rune Factory 5 PC Announcement Trailer:
Return to the fantasy world of Rune Factory for a grand adventure while living whatever life you please! Mysterious events are unfolding in the sleepy border town of Rigbarth, affecting the runes that govern the balance between humanity and nature. As the newest ranger for the peacekeeping organization SEED, players will protect the frontier town by rounding up rowdy monsters with their official SEED-issued spell seal or team up with an ally for brand-new link attacks. When not on a mission, work with the people of Rigbarth to help the town flourish through farming, festivals, and friendships!
