Cooking, Forging And Crafting Are Back In Rune Factory 4. Here’s A Look


Xseed have shared a new trailer for Rune Factory 4—or rather, a tutorial of sorts. It highlights cooking, forging and crafting, all of which are back in full. Watch the video below:



Rune Factory 4 will be released on October 1st in North America. The game features a more advanced dating system than previous Rune Factory games, whereby you can maintain a lovers’ relationship with your partner before having to tie the knot. Once married, you can also take your family adventuring with you.


The game also puts you in the role of a prince or princess, depending on whether you pick the male or female character. In this role, you will be required to help grow the game’s town through your decisions.
