Those in the UK who are members of the Nintendo Switch Online service can partake in the quiet, relaxing world of Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town now, as a Game Trial is open to those in the region starting November 10th. It will be available until Tuesday, November 16th.



If you haven’t done so already, you now have the opportunity to start your own farm, watch the town around you come to life, care for animals, settle down with a partner to build a life together, and so much more.


Inspired by tales of your grandfather’s pioneering days, pack your bags and leave the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy the rural life in Olive Town.

You’ll have your work cut out for you: your grandfather’s farm has been reclaimed by nature over the years. So, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and rebuild your grandfather’s dream.

Olive Town – just a stone’s throw away from your farm – is a port town resting gently on the coast of the peninsula. It might be a quiet little town, but it is home to a whole host of unique characters. And while the townsfolk get by well enough in this picturesque seaside locale, a little more tourism never hurt anyone…

The brand-new entry in the STORY OF SEASONS franchise is putting down roots on the Nintendo Switch! This long-awaited entry in the original farm/life simulation offers players more freedom than ever before! Embrace the pioneer spirit to shape the untamed wilderness, discover new animals and produce, and help them flourish on your farm. Customise every inch of your new homestead to impress a new cast of marriage candidates from Olive Town, an aspiring tourist hotspot that grows and thrives along with your farm.


This new world awaits you on Nintendo Switch! If you’re looking for more incentive to start this sweet adventure, make sure to check out Jennifer Burch‘s thoughts on the game in her full review.

The same Game Trial was offered to players in North America back in September. If it happens to become available again, we’ll make sure to let you know.
