A new video for Rune Factory 3 Special introduces players to several bachelorettes, which the protagonist Micah will meet in-game. This legendary cast of marriageable ladies include Shara, Raven, and Sofia.

Rune Factory 3 Special is a remastered and expanded version of the classic RPG and life-sim game. It's coming out on September 5 on Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.

This remastered version offers gorgeous HD graphics along with redesigned 3D character models, which improve upon the original designs while keeping the unique appeal.
