Rune Factory 4 Special is on its way to the Nintendo Switch, and people who go with a physical copy are going to get something extra. On Reddit, a picture has appeared showing it comes with a relic hat used to be common in games long ago: an instruction manual. It is shoehorned into the small spot above the cartridge. [Thanks, Reddit!]
StryfeK, who picked up the Rune Factory 4 Special physical copy, offered some insight into what it does and doesn’t include. It is a color booklet that is 41-pages long. It explains how to farm and fight your way to glory, as well as save in one of the game’s 20 slots. The Story and new Another Episode and Newlywed modes are briefly summarized. There is also a full group photo with each of the bachelors and bachelorettes named.
As a reminder, the Rune Factory 4 Special Newlywed mode opens up after your avatar gets married, and you can then go through a little segment with that love interest. The Another Episode segments are new DLC storylines that people will be able to get temporarily for free at launch.
Rune Factory 4 Special will come to the Nintendo Switch outside of Japan on February 25, 2020 in North America and February 28, 2020 in Europe. It is immediately available in Japan.
