Until we get into November and there's still no announcement of any kind, I'm not worried about it being pushed past the '2019' release window that is all we know so far. Xseed almost never announces any of their games' release dates more than a month in advance.

I don't think announcing the release date in itself lends all that much publicity. It's true though...groups like Aksys and Xseed are not all that good at promoting their games. Xseed did do character introductions all leading up to the release of Trio of Towns, though. (Though the game's release date was also announced...I think *exactly* a month ahead, or within a few days of a month ahead of Feb 28th.) It was one of their more heavily promoted games at the time, iirc. I could be wrong, but I don't think they'll do that for a port/remake, since they're never that gung-ho on promotions in any case.

It'd be nice if they gave Rune Factory a new introduction to the masses. It appeared on a Nintendo Direct, after all! And almost no one knew what it was, it seems.

EDIT: This miiiight be a bit of a stretched idea, but there could be a way for fans to help spread the word via Xseed. Make interesting posts about RF4S (etc) and tag Xseed. If it's a post they can show off and they retweet it, then not only your own followers see it, but all of Xseed's. This brought to you by the fact that I just noticed that Xseed did this retweet:

If nothing else, it's good to like and/or retweet these things, to help show that there's an eager market for these games. Imo.

I thought RF4 was the last game of the series since we've met all four dragons in the legend, but--goodness gracious--I was so happy when they announced RF5 :heart: Can't wait to see more information about it!

For anyone concerned about RF4S' release date...

It's probably been mentioned here already, but RF4S was announced for Europe in "winter". (That release window was shown at the end of a video Marvelous Games of Europe put up.) If Marvelous Games in Europe will have to add multiple languages beyond just the English option the North American version will have, then I'd expect theirs to take longer to come out.

Xseed has a teaser site for RF4S, and they use the same video as Marvelous Games, but Xseed's video says "2019" (their RF4S teaser site also lists the game as "TBA 2019") and Marv changed that to "Winter" for their video, so I think we can still expect the game in the next few months. Xseed just takes their time and doesn't announce anything until they're past any reasonable likelihood of the game getting delayed.

Started playing again and was able to marry Dylas with Ventuswill attending :) (aka right at the beginning of arc 2).

As for Hell Mode difficulty I’m at lv90 and am about to get into arc 2 (spring year 2) and it feels like a good place to be. Unless you are a wizard at healing HP/RP fast or dodging attacks, hell mode does make you work harder on your farm, making and upgrading equipment and healing items. Also helps to have party members that keep up their level with yours. I think thanks to hell mode I’ve paid more attention to growing good crops compared to my older files, so the balance between farming/adventuring is nice.

You can always cheese/button-mash your way through adventuring still, but it would be awfully grindy to do so, way more than hard mode.

I don't care about the special edition, but it's nice to have confirmation of a physical edition, as well as the price. ($40 for the regular version, USD.) Later this winter, it says. Hm. Probably not gonna make it out in 2019, then.

Part of me thinks they wouldn't have confirmed the special edition and said preorders open "soon" if it wasn't releasing in the next 60 days. However, December is super bare on releases so they wouldn't have any competition if they waited. If they did November there's a few games coming out that are getting a lot of hype that might make initial sales not as good for them.
Honestly if preorders opened today I would preorder immediately. Even if I had to wait on a different title.

Edit: preorders are up on xseed. Still don't see them anywhere else for the moment though.

A question for anyone playing the Japanese version. Does anyone know if the event encounter is still random?

I think it's still random. It felt easier to trigger crucial events this time around (like I triggered the 3rd arc almost right away), but it is most likely just a coincidence-- plus, I've played the game before so I had a better idea what to expect going in than when I first played, and didn't try to rush anything.

I was even able to trigger marriage w/Dylas in the small window between the 1st and 2nd story arcs so Ventuswill would be present for the wedding, and it wasn't too hard to get that to happen... but at the same time, I was actively avoiding certain map exits to prevent the 2nd arc from starting which I obviously didn't know about when the game was new. But I think it took less than a season in-game to get it

Ummm...this is only sort of Rune Factory 5 related. But if anyone remembers that drawing of a girl we saw that some (or most?) of us thought was probably associated with RF5 due to the style? With the lettuce-wings tiara thing on her head?

They put up another little drawing for New Year's today, and this time another character (a girl) is accompanying her. The message is just a general New Year's thing, though, I think. Not sure if there's anything to get out of this.

I think the girl on the right is the Hakama mascot, so probably not RF5 related, but the girl on the left probably is. It says that starting in 2020 they’ll have new “friends” and that Hashimoto and Iwasaki (RF character designer) have been working hard

Yeah, girl in the right isn't RF5 related (and seems to be the mascot based on previous posts) but the girl on the left probably is. And tbh she fits the RF esque look so I wouldn't be surprised. Not quite a protagonist design, but probably a major character if she is RF related.

Very exciting~
