Marvelous and XSeed Games have announced the release dates for Rune Factory 4 Special, along with release date trailers.
Along with English and Japanese audio, both outlets also confirmed free DLC for “four weeks” in the US (estimated March 24th )and until March 26th in Europe. The Another Episode DLC (usually $4.99 / £4.49 /€4,99) “contains 12 new storybook-style episodes narrated by the game’s marriage candidates”.
However, even without the DLC, players can view a “special story” focusing on Selhia’s dragon Ventuswill, by selecting “Another Episode” from the game’s title menu.
