The Rune Factory 5 digital pre-orders are open, and people who opt in get DLC. Xseed Games announced people who get it will also get The Holy Knight and the Bibliophile Swimsuit Set + New Ranger Care Package Item Pack. This includes cosmetic costumes for characters and jump start items. The pack will only be free for folks who order via the eShop. However, it will eventually be sold after launch.
Xseed went over the items in the pack. The two swimsuits are inspired by Rune Factory 4’s siblings Forte and Kiel. (The two were both love interests in the game.) The player characters can wear them. As for the New Ranger Care Package Item Pack, it gives you four items to help you get a head start. In each case, you get nine of them. There are nine healing potions, which can restore your health. The nine Cooking Breads can be eaten to learn recipes to make. You can grow the nine tomato seeds in the field to get the crops. And the nine orange juices can be used to recover or give as gifts.
Should someone want to grab it post-launch, it will appear on April 26, 2022. The pack will cost $1.99. The New Ranger Care Package Item Pack items can all be acquired via normal play in-game.
Rune Factory 5 will come to the Nintendo Switch on March 22, 2022 in North America and March 25, 2022 in Europe. Standard, Digital Deluxe, and limited editions will be sold. The Rune Factory 5 The Holy Knight and the Bibliophile Swimsuit Set + New Ranger Care Package Item Pack DLC will be sold starting on April 26, 2022. The game is already available in Japan.
