Rune Factory 4 (ルーンファクトリー4 Rūn Fakutorī 4?) is an RPG developed by Neverland and published by Marvelous AQL for the Nintendo 3DS. It is the sixth game in the Rune Factory series, and the first to be released on the 3DS. On January 31, 2013, XSEED Games announced plans to release the game in English in North America. Later, on September 12th, the company announced that official release date being October 1st, 2013. While the game was originally announced for European release, its release was later cancelled in January 2014.


Gameplay features elements not part of any previous Rune Factory title such as speaking with dragons and having long term relationships before marriage. Unique features include defeating boss monsters who occasionally become potential marriage candidates.


The game begins when the player's airship is invaded. The player was hit in the head, causing amnesia, as has been the case with all previous Rune Factory mobile installments. The player was thrown out of the airship, where the player lands in the town of Selphia, where they are mistaken for a member of royalty who was supposed to be showing up soon to help run the town. Although this is quickly revealed not to be the case, the actual prince who was due to arrive is happy to let the player take over his job. From there on out you are to attract tourist and work around the town to unlock features needed to carry on with the slice of life aspects of the game. At the same time, you will find a mysterious force at work in the nearby dungeons that is in need of investigation, with some monsters turning into humans upon their defeat. Characters from Rune Factory 2 and 3, Barrett and Raven, appear as cameos and can be recruited into a players party for dungeon exploration.
