Rune Factory 4 Special – Playstation 4/Xbox One Announcement Trailer
Rune Factory 4 Special: Previously released to high praise on Nintendo Switch™, the remastered classic will be coming to the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, and Windows PC this fall
Rune Factory 4 Special opens with a young man or woman falling from an airship and landing in the town of Selphia. Appointed the local regent by mistake, the hero is charged with protecting the town and bettering the lives of its people. As the newly appointed prince or princess, royal duties are fulfilled by issuing orders to help the town prosper, or by taking a more relaxed approach to governance by raising crops and helping townsfolk.
Should some dungeon adventuring be on the day’s itinerary, a vast array of weapons along with magic can be crafted or bought for battle against dangerous foes—companions or friendly monsters can also join to aid the player during their travels. And, of course, there’s a huge cast of lovable townsfolk, including 12 potential suitors to woo and marry.
Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town – Playstation 4/Xbox One Announcement Trailer
STORY OF SEASONS: Friends of Mineral Town: Previously released on Nintendo Switch™ and Windows PC, and one of XSEED Games’ all-time best-selling titles, the adorable farming/life sim will be sprouting on the PS4™ system and Xbox One this fall.
STORY OF SEASONS: Friends of Mineral Town is a complete remake of the beloved Game Boy Advance title, re-envisioning the charming and occasionally mysterious world of Mineral Town with updated gameplay, graphics, and characters for the modern-day. Core features of the STORY OF SEASONS series also make their return, with multi-floor mining and fan-favorite events like horse racing. Invited by Mayor Thomas to visit the farm owned by their late grandfather, a young city-slicker returns to Mineral Town to find the once-thriving field has fallen into disrepair. In their new hometown, they’ll tend the land and become part of the bustling rural community. Along the way to becoming a world-class farmer, they’ll befriend townsfolk and, perhaps, even find romance.
