This might be hard to predict. I don't think they restocked RF4S, so I think it'll be gone once it sells out. IIRC, the RF4S SE was available for at least a few months after release, maybe a bit longer. The PoOT SE is still available. But game speculation is wild. RF5 is probably not popular or desirable enough to sell out immediately, but you can usually get SEs for similar prices for a while after they sell out on eBay, etc.

So, I don't think I'm going to be able to buy both Rune Factory 5 and Kirby and the Forgotten Land since Rune Factory comes out on March 22nd (US) and Kirby comes out March 25th.

My question is concerning the Earthmate limited edition on XSeed Games' store. I want to get the physical Earthmate limited edition with the Wooly Keychain which comes out to $85 US (not including tax, but free shipping).

Does anyone know how long this special edition (with or without the wooly keychain) will be available to order off of Xseed Games' website? I want to make sure I get the special edition.

Does anyone know the price for the NA digital deluxe edition? I know the standard digital version on the NA Nintendo eShop is $59.90.

Also when can we pre-order it on the e-Shop? :? :? :?

I don't think it's directly stated. From what I can tell, a few decades have passed. I'm guessing about 40-60 years or something. Probably no more than a century. I might be wrong, however.

How much time has passed between RF4 and RF5?

Well the review here indicated that the MQ is shorter, but that also the relationships were fleshed out more and more interesting. So for me that's sounds better. (I didn't hear any real spoilers, but if you want to go in completely blind I suppose you should leave the review alone).

The same person did another vid on what you can do after the MQ and it sounds like some more dungeons are unlocked giving you more to do. Plus of course marriage, etc.

I have to admit, I'm wanting to play RF5 on my switch lite right now. It's tough to wait patiently for March to be here.

The one that I want to marry in-game is Murakumo the innkeeper wolfguy. I want to know his loves, his likes, his dislikes, and his hates. And what lunches he will give out, and what his weapon of choice is. And it's cool that he comes with a sister and a niece, to be my in-laws. He shares the same birthday as mine.

Is there anyone that is similar to Porcoline in this game?

I'm wondering if there is any planned DLC.

For me, the more story I can get, the better. The story in RF4 was pretty rudimentary, in my view...I'd love more depth. Though that's not really a Rune Factory trait. All the length was in gameplay time rather than in actually being a deep story...grinding up enough skill to make the gear you need and so on. To find out that RF5 is notably less in-depth than RF4 was definitely anticipation-lowering for me.

Hanging my hopes on the characters and their scenes/events, for this one. I get why they've basically made it a clone of 4, as it's a big comeback game with an at least partially new team, but I hope they'll be a little more ambitious/creative with RF6.

Pretty sure I'll enjoy it even if I'm not hyped, and I think I may gain some hype when the release is imminent. Maybe by the time March rolls in? I should probably look into the characters again, since they've been the most interesting part to me so far.

Next Day EDIT: Digital pre-orders are now live, including a digital deluxe version. Apparently? But not where I live, they aren't. Maybe after noon, here in my time zone?

I want to get excited for this game, now, as it's in view...only 2.5 months ahead. But I feel no anticipation at all. I was really disappointed to hear that the story is notably shorter than it is in 4...faster to complete. At least the character events sound really good. But it doesn't seem like RF5 blew Japanese-language players out of the water, either...I don't feel like I saw much excitement generated by its release. I don't know, but...I hope I'll finally get excited sometime before the thing is out, lol. I miss hype...

I hope everybody else has all the hype they can handle :)


Honestly thought the story in RF4 was a bit too long. I mean with the Empire part and the tower, it just seemed like it was going on forever. Add to that plant dungeons, capturing all the bosses, etc. Even a dungeon I had to bring my whole family too in order to open the door. There was a lot to do there.

Maybe the individual side quests, romance quests, etc., will have more to them if they cut down on the major questline. Here's hoping.

As far as hype goes ... I want to pick it up as soon as I can, but still not sure what version, and not sure I want to wait a lot longer for the PC version. Sooner or later I'll need to figure it out though.

I’m also not super hyped right now, but I do think about the upcoming release. I might go for the physical version, just vanilla though. I’m pretty sure I’ll be excited once I have it in my hands.

I don’t think I can handle another physical copy of anything anymore so here’s to getting RF5 digitally.

You guys just made me realise that I have no plans for purchasing RF5. I don't mean I'm not going to...but I haven't even thought about what edition, or if I'll even bother with physical, or if I'll preorder at all. I do really love steelbook cases (I wish all games came with them as an add-on option) but that's the only thing I'd want out of the Earthmate edition, and it's not worth an extra $25 since it's not even particularly beautiful, unlike the Cold steel special editions I was totally willing shelling out for.

I want to get excited for this game, now, as it's in view...only 2.5 months ahead. But I feel no anticipation at all.

If I recall correctly I think they did something similar with the buffalo plush for EU, plus they had better goodies for the deluxe version of PoOT. I quit being jealous after I actually played PoOT though, lol. I'm planning on ordering the vanilla physical version myself to give Rune Factory another try, though I have yet to decide from where.
