During today’s Nintendo Direct (October 28th, 2020), the last one for this year, Nintendo updated us on upcoming games like Bravely Default II, Immortals Fenyx Rising, and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. However, my favorite new reveal of the day was that of another Story of Seasons game!
In Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town, you get to follow in your grandfather’s footsteps and restore an old farm, as well as the port town nearby surrounded by archipelagos. The art style is cuter than ever and it looks like you’ll encounter cows, chickens, alpacas in the wild that you can bring to you farmland! What seems to be a new addition to the franchise, like in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you have more customization options to decorate your land, like adding paths!
Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town will be releasing on March 23rd, 2021 on the Nintendo Switch. For more information, check out the Nintendo Switch listing below!
About Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town
The long-awaited brand new entry in the original farm/life simulation franchise, known in Japan as Bokujo Monogatari, makes its debut on Nintendo Switch, bringing players more freedom than ever before to shape an untamed wilderness and customize their farm down to the very tile. A new cast of marriage candidates, a town that grows and thrives along with your farm, and a request system highlight the new features, all while retaining the core elements of the STORY OF SEASONS series.
Finding Earth Sprites while exploring your farmland may lead you to mysterious, fantastical lands such as gardens where the seasons never change, an island in the sky, or even the inside of a volcano!
