During the Rune Factory 4 Special livestream by Marvelous today, they delivered on the promise of Rune Factory 5 news with a short trailer of monster designs, and more importantly, the silhouettes of the protagonists of the new game.
Additionally, more details on the save data bonus from Rune Factory 4 Special was revealed. If you play Rune Factory 5 with Rune Factory 4 Special save data, two characters from RF4 will appear in Rune Factory 5.
From the looks of the monsters shown in the trailer, the game may have a slight cartoony look.

Finally, Marvelous explained that the purple color of the number 5 in Rune Factory 5’s logo will have something to do with the theme of the game, but didn’t elaborate on what this meant.
Rune Factory 5 is in development for Nintendo Switch, with a 2020 release date.
