Rune Factory 5 (ルーンファクトリー5, Run Fakutori 5) is an upcoming game in the Rune Factory series[2] . It is set to be released sometime in 2020 in Japan for the Nintendo Switch[1].


Due to the success of Rune Factory 4, the creator, Yoshifumi Hashimoto, said the game’s reception was good enough to green light a sequel in a Famitsu article[3], though did not say that it was in development. During the February 2019 Nintendo Direct, it was announced that Rune Factory 5 was in development.

In the May 2019 issue of Nintendo Dream, two developers (Maekawa and Hashimoto) said that they are excited for the games progress and hoped people will like it[4]. During Marvelous’ latest financial results briefing, they said that Rune Factory 5 will “definitely not” release before April 2020[5]. On July 25th 2019, a teaser trailer was shown during the end of a Rune Factory 4 Special livestream[6].
