Rune Factory 5 details Seed Point system, reveals more romance candidates

Marvelous published even more new information for Rune Factory 5 in Japan. In addition to more characters including romance candidates, Marvelous also started giving details about the gameplay system.

When your protagonist character awakens with amnesia in the Rigbars town, you will join the peace-keeping security organization called Seed. You can take daily requests from townsfolk, which vary from finding lost items to beating or even capturing specific monsters.

Successfully completing these requests will reward you with Seed Points, which can be used in the Making menu. In the latter menu, you can do various things such as developing useful items, taking licenses to cook food or smith weapons, and holding festivals in the town.

Hero and Heroine Candidates

Lucas (voiced by Showtaro Morikubo)
An amnesiac gentleman who arrives in the town as a mysterious traveler. He is interested in everything and acts proactively. He records interesting things in his notebook, so it is thought that he came to this town to examine something. Although Lucas lost his memory, he still has extensive knowledge that allows him to appraise things like ores.


Murakumo (voiced by Shunsuke Takeuchi)
A young were-animal man who is running the only inn in Rigbars. Despite being hearty and broad, his personality is filled with manly kindness. His desire to please guests is too strong, he ended up giving an excessive amount of service and continues going on a deficit. Murakumo's encounter with the Protagonist will give him advice from a guest's viewpoint, as he plans to reorganize his inn.


Fuqua (voiced by Aki Toyosaki)
A were-animal girl who arrived at Rigbars after passing through various countries. She suffered from harsh conditions before she came to this town, but now her mental state lets her laugh that off. Although Fuqua can still yet to understand human language, she is somehow able to perceive lies from other people, perhaps due to her wild instinct. She has a very honest personality.


Ludmila (voiced by Sumire Morohoshi)
A succubus girl who lives for love. She likes the feeling of pleasure right near the limits, and she is especially infatuated with the Protagonist. She may look carefree and selfish, but she is very serious and has her own rules. Ludmila distances herself from other people because she used to bring misfortune as a succubus to someone in the past.
