Rune Factory 4 Special - Archival Edition for Nintendo Switch

Rune Factory 4 Special marks the return of the beloved entry in the popular STORY OF SEASONS spinoff series that combines farming with dungeon adventuring, as the series makes its debut on Nintendo Switch with upgraded HD graphics, a new Newlywed Mode, and additional cut-scenes. In this standalone story, players choose to play as a male or female hero and will encounter a diverse cast of potential suitors and other loveable townsfolk. As the newly appointed prince or princess, you can fulfill your royal duties by issuing ordinances to help the town prosper, or take a more rural approach to governing by raising your own fruits and vegetables and helping townsfolk. Should some dungeon adventuring be on the day's itinerary, you can craft or buy a vast array of swords, spears, and staves along with magic for battle against dangerous foes, or even bring along some companions or friendly monsters to aid you during your travels.

Arrived early! So that was exciting.
The game comes with a physical manual which I think is neat.
The downside is that my box was pretty damaged upon arrival.
I’m very picky about stuff like that though and if you’re like me it’s just one thing to think about. They send it in plastic mailers and not in a box.

The box is beautiful, the contents within are beautiful, the music is beautiful!!!!!
The game is fantastic so far. This is my first RF game but I didn’t want to miss out on this archival edition and regret it later on.
My friend had recommended this game to me previously and now I’m glad I can finally play it.

I never write reviews but I simply MUST for this game. Having played all the Rune Factory games to date, Rune Factory 4 is by far the best one in the series. It is my absolute favorite game of all time, and I was beyond thrilled to hear that it was coming out on the Switch in 2020. (I waited six years for this, you guys. SIX YEARS!!) The newly updated HD art looks stunning, and they included a lot of new content to an already MASSIVE game. I’ve bought (and subsequently regretted buying) games with less than half the content for a much higher price.

This game is a dream for anyone interested in farming simulation, surprisingly intense JRPG combat (especially with the new Hell mode), building relationships with interesting and well-written characters, following a good storyline, and enjoying (literally) endless gameplay.
