How to Update to Version 1.0.5:

If you have "automatic updates" enabled on your Nintendo Switch console then the 1.0.5 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. Alternatively you should receive a notification that an update is available upon starting the game if connected to the internet.

Should the update 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.

As previously announced the gap in release between the Japanese version of the 1.0.5 patch and our version was due to the large volume of additional text that had to be localized into English, French, German, and Spanish. We apologize again for this delay, and we are sincerely grateful for the support and patience of all STORY OF SEASONS: Pioneers of Olive Town fans.
