I’m a sucker for a good farming sim, especially when they do something different while also being pleasing to the eye. The next game in the Story of Seasons franchise, Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town, certainly caught my eye when it was announced late last year and while I was already excited to head to Olive Town, publishers Marvelous Games and XSEED Games announced today that the game would be getting a bunch of post-launch DLC in the form of an expansion pass. Most games in this franchise wind up getting a little bit of DLC but this is a really great-looking package. Here is what will be included in the pass:
- Part 1 – April 2021: ‘Animal Attire’ costumes are coming for the player characters and marriage candidates. ‘Olive Town Mystery Files’ sub-scenario, the first of a mystery scenario series involving Mikey and Cindy.
- Part 2 – May 2021: ‘Windswept Falls Expansion Pack’ where you can explore a brand new area home to four characters from pass entries on the Nintendo 3DS including two new marriage candidates.
- Part 3 – June 2021: ‘School Uniforms’ costumes for player characters and marriage candidates. ‘Terracotta Oasis Expansion Pack’ where you can discover an oasis home to four characters from Story of Seasons for 3DS including two new marriage candidates.
- Part 4 – July 2021: ‘Yukata Set’ costumes, ‘Legendary Sprite Dance’ sub-scenario.
- Part 5 – August 2021: ‘Twilight Isle Expansion Pack.’ Sail to an island and meet four characters from Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns including two marriage candidates.
- There is also Expansion Pass Purchase Bonus DLC which will be availiable to all pass owners on game launch. These are costumes from all of the player characters from Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town and the Western Attire costumes from Trio of Towns.
Specific dates and additional details about the individual DLC packs will be released at a later time. Also, if you preorder the game digitally you get another little cute piece of DLC, a fox costume for your character.
How is this new farming adventure shaping up for you? Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town is releasing on March 26th exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
