Rune Factory 4 Has An Elderly Butler Character, Too



The lead characters in Rune Factory 4 lead the temporary life of a prince or princess after falling out of an airship and suffering amnesia. To tie in with this royal status, Rune Factory 4 lets you build up your town and attract more visitors to it.


While Marvelous didn’t reveal much more about this, they did reveal today that building up the town is done using something called the Prince System. You can use the Prince System to construct buildings and hold festivals by spending Prince Points.



They also introduced a new character — Wolkanon, a top-notch steward or butler who serves…a dragon. Early on, Marvelous announced that Rune Factory 4’s leads have the ability to communicate with dragons.


This particular dragon apparently assisted the protagonist in some manner. It appears you can buy items from Wolkanon, too.


So…how many of our readers hope that you can court him?
