How to Update to the latest version:

If you have "automatic updates" enabled on your Nintendo Switch console then the v1.0.7 and v1.0.8 updates for STORY OF SEASONS: Pioneers of Olive Town should automatically download and install to your console when the console does its regular check for available game updates. Alternatively you should receive a notification that an update is available upon starting the game if the Nintendo Switch console is connected to the internet. 

Should the update(s) not be detected automatically then we would suggest doing a manual update.

Manual Update:

  1. Highlight the STORY OF SEASONS: Pioneers of Olive Town game icon on the Nintendo Switch home screen and press the “+” button on your controller.
  2. On this menu screen highlight “Software update” and press the “A” button twice. This will check for an update "via the internet" and will automatically download and install the update.

Both v1.0.7 and v1.0.8 updates will be downloaded and installed at the same time and once the updates have finished installing it will display ver. 1.0.8 on the game information screen on your Nintendo Switch home screen, as shown below.
