XSEED has decided to localize Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns’ DLC
Posted on 8 hours ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in 3DS, Videos | 6 Comments | 0 Likes
XSEED brought up a problematic situation the company was facing with Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns’ DLC last week. Essentially, in order to localize the new content for the west, they’d need to charge for it due to the huge amount of work involved as opposed to releasing it free like in Japan.
The community has spoken and XSEED has decided on which direction to take. Due to feedback received, Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns’ DLC will be localized.
XSEED wrote in a Tumblr blog post:
“We were really overwhelmed by the feedback we received from it. The patience and support of those who responded was encouraging to say the least, and we were grateful to hear all of your opinions, however you felt about the situation. One issue that came up on our forums that I’d like to address quickly is about the bug fixes that were included in the post-launch patches in Japan. Those fixes are all already included in the core game that we are releasing on February 28.
Now then, on to the big news: I’m happy to report that we have decided to localize and release the DLC in North America. I don’t have information on a release timeline or costs for you yet, but we’re eager to dive into translating and editing the text for this massive update. Stay tuned for updates in the months after the initial release.
Thanks again for all your feedback. It made our decision much easier. While the DLC is a ways off, until then we hope you enjoy Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns. Even without the post-launch DLC, it is still the biggest game in the storied history of the farm/life-sim series.”
Thanks to Blackbishop for the tip.

Yacht Club Games publishes more details about Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove and Specter of Torment
Posted on 1 day ago by Fernando in 3DS, News, Switch eShop, Wii U | 6 Comments | 0 Likes
After the last press release from Nintendo detailing the games that will be available on Switch’s eShop for launch date, Yacht Club Games has made its own official statement about the release of Shovel Knight in the new console.
They have confirmed that both versions (Treasure Trove and Specter of Torment) will indeed appear on March 3rd in Europe and North America. Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove will cost $/€24.99, while Specter of Torment as a stand-alone game will cost $/€9.99.
Treasure Trove includes the complete game, but in the near future the other two stand-alone adventures, Shovel of Hope and Plague of Shadows, will be able to buy separately. As for the rest of platforms, the new content for Shovel Knight will be ready in April.
Additionally, today there will be a lead-up sale to buy Shovel Knight 33% off, starting February 23rd and ending March 2nd. This is the last chance to get the game at a low price, since the Treasure Trove pack will cost more than the base game did until now.
