Here are patch notes:
- Added support for romance and marriage with characters of the same gender.
- When the player confesses their love to a character of the same gender and receives a positive response, the game will progress with their romance scenario.
- Fixed a bug where you might not be able to advance if a marriage candidate asks you out on a date and you go out on a date while an event is in progress.
Rune Factory 5 launched for Switch in Japan on May 20, and is due out on March 22, 2022 in North America and March 25 in Europe. It should be noted that same-gender romance and marriage was already confirmed as a base feature for the game’s release in the west.
