How to Update to Version 1.0.4:
If you have "automatic updates" enabled on your Nintendo Switch console then the 1.0.4 update 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. Should the update not be detected automatically then we would suggest doing a manual update.
- Highlight the STORY OF SEASONS: Pioneers of Olive Town game icon on the Nintendo Switch home screen and press the “+” button on your controller.
- 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.
The next update will go beyond optimization and bug fixes. It will include adjustments and additions to game systems and text. The two main purposes will be to adjust the functionality of makers and update dialogue text, two things that we have received a lot of feedback from players about.
In an effort to improve the functionality of makers, they will be changed so that each maker is able to create multiple items.
Our team is now working on writing new dialogue so that players can enjoy getting to know the residents of Olive Town even more than before.
Please see below for a full list of planned improvements, including the aforementioned features. We appreciate your patience as we work to prepare and implement these improvements in a future update.
