Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town

Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town has shipped over one million copies, Marvelous announced today. That piece of data applies to the combined performance of copies sent to stores as well as digital sales. Back in March, a sales milestone of 700,000 copies was announced.

In May, XSEED said that the game was its fastest-selling title at the time. It managed to sell over 200,000 copies in North America after only two months. Before Pioneers of Olive Town, Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town was the previous fastest-selling game for XSEED.

Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town will soon be available to play for all Switch Online members as part of a new trial, Nintendo has announced. The game can be played in its entirety with an active subscription starting on September 22. Note that the offer ends on September 28 at 11:59 PM PT / September 29 at 2:59 AM ET. If you want to pre-load, you can do so here.

Also tying in with upcoming event, Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town will be seeing a slight discount. You can save 10 percent starting now until October 4 at 9:59 AM PT / 11:59 AM ET.

Marvelous has revealed a new DLC collaboration between Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town and Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin. Starting on September 15, players can obtain the “Princess Sakuna’s Heavenly Garb” outfit. It will be offered until March 30, 2022. This is free DLC, so no extra payment is required.

Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town and Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin both fall under the Marvelous umbrella, so the DLC crossover does make sense. Both games have also been very successful going back to their original debuts. By the end of March, the new Story of Seasons Switch title was confirmed to have sold over 700,000 copies. As for Sakuna, that one has gone on to sell over one million units. The game has also appeared in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with spirits, and if that wasn’t enough, a special Pop Up Parade figure is based on the way featuring Sakuna herself.

Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town originally launched for Switch in Japan on February 25 of this year. It then came to North America on March 23, followed by Europe on March 26. Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin, developed by Edelweiss, launched on November 10, 2020 in North America, November 12 in Japan, and November 20 in Europe.
