We are still recovering from the Playstation Showcase, but it’s time for even more announcements as Marvelous Inc and Marvelous Europe showcase the inaugural Marvelous Game Showcase 2023. Marvelous Inc is the developer of Story of Seasons and the Rune Factory series, a fantastic pair of series that appears in our best Switch simulation games guide.
Both of these beloved IPs got some attention in the showcase. Story of Seasons’ Series Manager Hikaru Nakano revealed not just one, but two new installments to the franchise that are ‘diligently under development’. The first is inspired by the keyword ‘experiences’ and builds on fan-favorite elements of the series while improving the visual appeal of the player’s farm. The second game is the first ever multiplayer Story of Seasons game, something that fans have asked for year after year.
Rune Factory also received two announcements, one for the main series and another revealing a new spin-of series. The tentatively titled Rune Factory: Project Dragon is set in the eastern lands that many Rune Factory fans will have heard of but never seen, and is styled around traditional Japanese aesthetics. If you’re wondering why ‘Project Dragon’, check out the trailer and you’ll find out.
Rune Factory Series Director Shiro Maekawa revealed that Rune Factory 6 is on its way as well. The story takes place on the western continent of Adonea, completing Maekawa’s chosen keyword ‘touzai’, which translates to east and west. He also said the team is “taking this series to unexplored territory” with both of these titles, which is sure to excite long-time fans of the franchise.
We also got a closer look at the upcoming fashion influencer game Fashion Dreamer, as well as introductions to two new IPs and a new entry into the Daemon X Machina franchise – Titanic Scion.
