Description Edit | History

The game begins by offering the player two lines of dialogue and the choice between the two determines their character's gender. It is revealed that the character is traveling by airship to the town of Selphia to meet and deliver a gift to its 'god'. 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, named Arthur, was due to arrive is happy to let the player take over his job. From there on out you are to attract tourists, gain trust from the villagers in Selphia, and work around the town to unlock features needed to carry on with the slice of life aspects of the game. Features common to previous games in the Rune Factory series, including farming, dungeon exploring, and marriage.

More Information Edit | History

Trivia:

  • Due to Natsume (the rights holders of the “Harvest Moon” moniker) no longer publishing the Rune Factory games, Rune Factory 4 is the first numbered entry whose title does not to contain the "A Fantasy Harvest Moon" label.

Jones and Nancy have a suspect relationship:

  • When using a love potion on Jones he mentions smelling fried rice (his favorite thing).
  • When using a love potion on Nancy she will accept it but will not show any sign of affection, saying "Oh, I know what that is. It's Love Potion, isn't it? Of course I'm familiar with it. Why, when i was young, I..."
  • Nancy claims to have met Jones as kids, but Jones says they met after Nancy's accident...
  • Nancy is also a bit overly obsessed with Jones, creating new anniversaries and talking about relationships; even warning the player that Jones is hers.
  • Nancy will tell Lest "not to date all the girls, because boys should be firm and decisive." and tell Frey that "girls should be a little bit greedy."
  • They don't sleep in the same bed.
  • Nancy treats the player for free while Jones charges.

Untameable Monsters:

  • Ventuswill from the Sharance Dungeon
  • Raccoon (Magnuto)
  • Ancient Bone (Skelefang)
  • ??? monsters
  • Sechs Tanks
  • Ethelberd / Ethelwill / Ragnorak
  • Ghost Soldiers
  • Unconfirmed: King Wooly, Rafflesia, Big Duck, Death Orc, or Guardian

New Game+:

You only have to unlock it once. Then it's forever unlocked as an option on all new game files you make.

To Unlock:

    1. Complete Act 3 (Rune Prana dungeon)
    2. Complete all 97 of Eliza's requests.
    3. Start a new game.
    4. At any time during your new game you can import your previous save data using an Extra Order (but you have to go through the prologue first).

An important warning: Carrying over data will remove all your current game's stored items (in every place). Everything is removed and then overwritten. The New Game+ file will probably steal stuff from the old file. You may want to make two copies of the old file and delete one once you have all the stuff from it.

What Carries Over:

  • Stored Items (Rucksack, Bins, Racks, Boxes)
  • Expansions (House, Fields, barns, Furniture)
  • Field Status (Speed, Quality, Size)
  • Monsters Tamed (Friendship levels)
  • Skills (Villagers, tamed Monsters, MC)
  • NPC Equipment
  • Equipped Items (only the first two Ability slots saved, the R+ ones get deleted)
  • Money, Prince/ss Points, Tourist Population
  • Shipping History
  • Some Trophies

What Doesn't Carry Over:

  • Villager Relationships
  • Request Progress
  • Player Shop Progress
  • Unlocked Items in Stores
  • Licenses and certain expansion orders
  • Learned Recipes
  • Farms (Soil Levels and crops planted)
  • Story Progress (Map Completion, Vacation House Ownership, Unlocked Dungeon Areas, Airship Destinations)
  • Bath House Peep Counter
  • Sharance Progress

SUMMARY: When you import from another game data file, you carry over all your stats, skills, items, money, and shipping history. The more important aspects of your field's status are also preserved as well as villager's statuses and equips. The things that do not carry-over are mostly scenario-related: story progress, villager LP/FP, revealed areas in maps, and all of the orders. One curiosity is that recipes are not carried-over, which means you have to be prepared to stock both regular and high-level recipe bread to be able to start off where you left.

Social:

All events trigger at random. The marriage event will not be able to be triggered until the player is currently dating a candidate, have gone on a minimum of three dates, have seen the sub-event, and have their LP at 10 or more. LP will increase much slower from 7 points up if you are not dating a person. When you have multiple boyfriends / girlfriends, it's best to try to confess at 10 LP.

You can give 1 neutral, 1 liked, and 1 loved gift to each person everyday.
