Marvelous Announces Rune Factory 6, Project Dragon

Rune Factory: Project Dragon takes the series to a Japanese-inspired world.

What do you call a spin-off of a spin-off? The Rune Factory series has long been a successful branch of Story of Seasons, and, recently, Marvelous showed us its future. During its recent Game Showcase, the publisher announced Rune Factory 6 and a spin-off called Rune Factory: Project Dragon.

Shiro Maekawa, director of the Rune Factory series, announced the new games in the showcase below:

Project Dragon is set in an Eastern-inspired world only briefly mentioned in past games. The game pushes the series in new ways, but will maintain previous elements such as romance options.

Not too much was announced for Rune Factory 6 beyond the game’s logo, but to contrast Project Dragon, it will take place on a Western-inspired continent of Adonea. Both titles are “diligently under development.”
