Among the new Marvelous Game Showcase 2023 game announcements were two new Rune Factory installments. Rune Factory: Project Dragon and 6 are in development. While Project Dragon is a spin-off that will take place in the teased eastern country, the sixth entry will appear in Adonea in the West.
While there was only a logo for Rune Factory 6, actual gameplay footage for Rune Factory: Project Dragon showed up. There will once again be an Earthmate player with connections to a dragon. The character showed up riding on the dragon to get to different areas. We also got to see them fight in a few battles and use a drum to cause trees to grow. Also, while this is set in an eastern country, a Wooly appeared to suggest familiar monsters could appear. Kenichiro Tsukuda is Project Dragon’s General Producer, Hisahi Fujii is Producer, and Shiro Maekawa is Director.
You can watch the full showcase below.
We’ve seen quite a lot of Rune Factory appear, with the latest “new” game in the series being Rune Factory 5. However, in addition to that new installment, we’ve also seen past ones return. Rune Factory 4 Special showed up first, and Rune Factory 3 Special will come to the Nintendo Switch and PC in September 2023.
Rune Factory 6 and Rune Factory: Project Dragon are in development.
