XSEED Games today introduced ten of the eligible bachelors and bachelorettes that will be included in Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town.

Here’s a brief introduction:

Nintendo Everything recently had the chance to speak with Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin director Nal and CG artist Koichi. Although the team at Edelweiss typically doesn’t pursue sequels, we couldn’t help but ask if we could see a follow-up to the Switch game one day. It’s impossible to deny Sakuna’s strong reception and sales, and we already know that it’s doing pretty well having sold over 500,000 copies in less than a month.

When asked if we could see more from the Sakuna universe, Nal had this to say:

Another update for Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin was made available on Switch this week, and version 1.04 can be downloaded now. It comes with adjustments, improvements, and bug fixes.

Below are the full patch notes as translated by Nintendo Everything:

Daemon X Machina has updated again with some major functionality. The Switch and PC versions now support cross-save functionality, XSEED has announced. That means you can continue progress between both platforms.

Over the past year, Daemon X Machina has received a number of notable updates. The game most recently celebrated its first anniversary with additional content.

Daemon X Machina first launched for Switch in September 2019.
