'Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town' (Switch) Shares A Look At The Marriage Prospects - Screens & Trailer

Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town is a new adventure that drops eager explorers in Olive Town, a charming seaside community on the edge of the untamed frontier, where they will work to breathe life back into their grandfather’s dilapidated farm.

Though it may at first appear to be a sleepy burg, Olive Town is home to dozens of unique characters to befriend when players are ready to take a break from building their dream farm.

Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town will bring 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!

Inspired by tales of their grandfather's pioneering days, the protagonist decides to pack their bags and leave the hustle and bustle of big city life for the frontier in Olive Town.

When they arrive, they run into Victor, the town's mayor and their grandfather's old friend.  He brings them to the old farm, which has been reclaimed by nature over the years.  Determined to breathe life back into their grandfather's dream and follow in his footsteps, the protagonist rolls up their sleeves and gets to work.

Olive Town—which is just a stone's throw away from the farm—is a port town built on the tip of a 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...


XSEED Games today introduced 10 of the eligible bachelors and bachelorettes looking to meet the right farmer in  Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town. While players will spend their days on the wild frontier building a farm from scratch, the nearby port of Olive Town presents an opportunity to make friends with the locals and maybe find their ideal partner to settle down with.

Olive Town is home to all types of single lads and lasses waiting to be swept off their feet. Some of the bachelorettes include Blaire, the bistro waitress who dreams of making it big in the city as an actress, and Reina, an energetic young woman whose knowledge of ancient items is rivaled only by her ability to lose track of time studying them. The young bachelors include the reserved Damon, with his cool motorcycle and secret soft spot for helping animals, and Iori, a gentle young man who takes joy in the overlooked beauty of nature like the rustling of leaves in the wind and babbling of brooks.

Key Features

  • Cultivate Your Farm, Cultivate Your Town - Tame the wilderness of the peninsula and build your farm from the ground up! Gather and process materials to fulfill requests and improve Olive Town’s infrastructure, upgrade tools, or commission new outfits and accessories.
