Submitted by alternis on Tue, 04/02/2019 - 08:06

Rune Factory 4 Special was announced during february's Nintendo Direct, and will release on July 25th 2019 in Japan. The release date for western countries is still unknown.

We still have a few months to go before being able to visit Selphia once again, but HAKAMA released some information through screenshots and short interviews, so here goes !

The big boy/girl difficulty : Hell mode

Hard vs Hell mode in Rune Factory 4S

On the left, hard mode. On the right, hell mode! 

With the same gear and level, Thunderbolt deals 4 times more damage than in the already infuriating hard difficulty. If you already cleared the game, this will surely be a refreshing experience. We don't have more details on the difficulty for now, but it seems to simply be about dealing way less damage than usual and receiving way more. It will be activable from Frey's/Lest's basement. 

New Romance Content

Rune Factory 4S will also allow you to play all bachelor/bachelorettes scenarios in a single save file thanks to the new "Newlywed Mode" added to the title screen once you're married!

Each character also gets new voice lines and a love scenario. Will you date them all? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Visual Improvements

Thanks to the big hardware gap between the 3DS and the Nintendo Switch, the game is getting a massive interface overhaul, as well as new animated cutscenes and opening movie!

That's it for today. Stay tuned for more Rune Factory 4S information!
