Celebrating 25 years of digital farming

Recommended Videos

Next year, the beloved BokujÅ Monogatari/Story of Seasons franchise is celebrating its 25th anniversary, and it’s doing so in a big way. Not only are we finally getting Rune Factory 5 sometime in 2021, but Switch owners will also be able to enjoy the next entry in the mainline series with Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town.

Originally announced during the last Nintendo Direct Mini Partner Showcase back in October, Pioneers of Olive Town will see players building their farms from the ground up in a land overrun with trees. We’ll be able to design our farms as we please with new customization options to go along with the tried-and-true farming gameplay that has kept the series going for a quarter-century. The developers are promising more than 200 unique events, a fresh crop of bachelors and bachelorettes, and some features we haven’t seen in the series before, such as a tourism system that allows you to send your farmer to another player’s town on a sightseeing trip.

Pre-orders for the physical version of the game are available in two options. The standard edition, which just includes the game, will retail for $49.99, while $10 more gets you the premium edition that includes the game, a cloth poster of the key art, and Buffy, the buffalo plush that’ll fit right in with the rest of your Story of Season plushes.

Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town

Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town releases on March 23, 2021, in North America and on March 26, 2021 in Europe, exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
