One of the highlights of the Marvelous showcase earlier today was the official reveal of the new tentatively titled game Rune Factory: Project Dragon. Rune Factory 6 has also been announced alongside it.
This new spin-off in the fantasy lifestyle series is set in the “Eastern lands with a Japanese-style aesthetic” – completely new to the series. Project Dragon’s general producer is Tsukuda Kenichiro, the producer is Fujii Hisashi and the director is Maekawa Shiro. Here’s a bit about it from the series director:
“Players have never been able to visit these lands, as the games only vaguely mentioned that such a place exists. Until now! Players will finally be able to explore this eastern nation!”
“In Project Dragon, the adventure will unfold in a completely new setting with characters and scenery designed in a Japanese style… we’re going to deliver an experience unique from the main series while expanding upon familar elements such as your day-to-day life, adventuring, and romantic pursuits…dragons will be important to the story”
