One of the highlights of Marvelous’ presentation today was the official unveiling of a new game with a previous title Rune Factory: Project Dragon. Rune Factory 6 was also announced along with it.

This new spin-off of the fantasy lifestyle series is set in an “Oriental country with a Japanese aesthetic” – a brand new experience for the series. Project Dragon is executive produced by Kenichiro Tsukuda, produced by Fuji Hisashi, and directed by Shiro Maekawa. Here’s a little about it from the director of the series:

“Players were never able to visit these lands, as the games only vaguely mentioned that such a place existed. Still! Players will finally be able to explore this eastern land!”

“In Project Dragon, the adventure will take place in a completely new setting with characters and scenery designed in a Japanese style… we are going to provide an experience unique from the main series, expanding on familiar elements such as your daily – everyday life, adventures and romantic pursuits.. . dragons will be important to the story”
