'Rune Factory 3 Special' Gets Limited Retail Golden Memories Edition

by Rainier on March 31, 2023 @ 11:23 a.m. PDT

The Rune Factory series combines the fun and rewarding gameplay of Harvest Moon with the fantasy and excitement of an action-RPG, offering Harvest Moon fans and traditional RPG players the best of both worlds.

Rune Factory 3 Special brings improved visuals for a new generation along with plenty of new features.

Rune Factory 3 Special after more than a decade following its original release on Nintendo DS, featuring HD graphics and redesigned 3D character models that breathe new life into a beloved entry in the Rune Factory series.  These improved visuals are bolstered by new features including Newlywed Mode, standalone adventures unlocked after marriage to each of the game's 11 eligible bachelorettes and a "Hell" difficulty level to challenge even veteran players!

Whether adventuring in dungeons, working the farm, or finding romance, experience the fantasy life you’ve always wanted.

In Rune Factory 3 Special players take on the role of Micah, a young man with the power to turn into a golden sheep-like monster known as a wooly. Rescued by a young woman after falling headfirst into the provincial town of Sharance, Micah awakens with no memories of his past and soon finds himself embroiled in a longstanding conflict between humans and monsters. Micah must work to build bridges between the races to restore peace, all while uncovering a shocking secret of his own.

XSEED Games revealed the limited retail “Golden Memories Edition” for Rune Factory 3 Special, with pre-orders available through the XSEED Games Store and participating retailers soon.

The Rune Factory 3 Special “Golden Memories Edition” has a suggested retail price of $79.99 and includes the following contents:

  • Custom outer box featuring an original illustration based on the game’s anime opening
  • Rune Factory 3 Special Nintendo Switch™ game card and case

  • An original soundtrack CD
  • A custom 5” by 8” planner containing in-game seasons in addition to a real world calendar
  • Exclusive “Swimsuit Mode” DLC allowing for characters to appear in their swimsuits year-round

All physical pre-orders through the XSEED Games Store will also include the option to bundle the game with an adorable Golden Wooly keychain, modeled after Micah’s sheep form, for an additional $5 while supplies last.

The base game will be offered at retail in a standard physical edition at a suggested retail price of $39.99. Details on digital editions and pricing will be available at a later date.
