Launching just nine months ago on Nintendo Switch, Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town has finally reached a major sales milestone. XSEED Games announced today that the title, which also launched on Steam in September, has sold one million units worldwide – and that stat is only for Nintendo Switch copies (unlike last month’s one million shipped report that included PC copies). That isn’t the only good news that the publisher has, as farmers can expect a brand new update later this month for the game.

This new update – Version 1.1.0 – will be adding a variety of features to the base game and those who purchased the paid DLC Expansion Pass. According to XSEED Games, here’s what will be sprouting up when the Version 1.1.0 update releases on Monday, November 29th:



The Spirit Quests introduced in STORY OF SEASONS: Pioneers of Olive Town version 1.1.0 unlock a series of challenging requests in which the protagonist acts as a medium between townsfolk and Sprites. The new Spirit Quests will be available once the player triggers all existing Town Development Events and saves enough Town Development Points. Spirit Quest rewards feature fresh new looks and abilities including:

  • New outfits at the beauty salon
  • New farming abilities
  • A mysterious ladder connecting areas of your farm


In addition to the Spirit Quests, this update also includes “new post-marriage event scenes. Additionally, the six marriage candidates introduced in the paid DLC “Expansion Pass” can now attend Olive Town’s four couples-centric festivals such as the Fireworks Display and the Snowshine Celebration.”



Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town is available at retailers as well as on the Nintendo eShop. Don’t forget to check out the Nintendo eShop to download the free Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin outfit too!
