The Nintendo Switch seems to be the system of choice for Marvelous's Rune Factory series as the console will get two more games in the series. During today's Nintendo Direct, Marvelous and Nintendo announced that a remaster of Rune Factory 3, titled Rune Factory 3 Special, will release on the Switch in 2023. In addition, a new game in the series was announced with more details on it to come out in the future.

The Rune Factory series revolves around a mysterious protagonist that enters a new town and is given a farm to take care of. Much like its sister series, Story of Seasons, taking care of your farm by planting crops raising animals (or in Rune Factory's case, monsters), and eventually finding a spouse to settle down and have a family with are the main draws of the franchise. The series differs from other farming sims by having dungeon exploration and combat, as well as a more involved story. Playing through the game, the protagonist discovers who they really are and will need to deal with the consequences of their background.

A short 40 second trailer showed off the Rune Factory 3 Special's new graphical enhancements, and a Newlywed Mode mode will also be added into the game. It will likely be similar to Rune Factory 4 Special's Newlywed Mode. In Rune Factory 4 Special, Newlywed Mode was a separate option on the main menu that allowed players to experience a short hour or so segment with their spouse. Newlywed Mode used Live2D technology to bring the moments to life, but it is currently unclear if that will be used in Rune Factory 3 Special. Additional features that Marvelous listed on their website for Rune Factory 3 Special will include an “Another Episode” mode, “fully-voiced picture stories narrated by those same [bachelor] characters” and a “Hell” difficulty mode.

The only real detial shared about the new Rune Factory game was that it was called a “new series”. This seems to imply that this next game will be different in some way than other games in the franchise. We will just have to wait for new details on it probably sometime next year.

Rune Factory 3 initially launched on the Nintendo DS in October 2009 in Japan, November 2010 in North America, and September 2011 in Europe.
