Build Your Dream Farm with Fabulous Style in Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town

Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town offers extensive character customization to help you look your best while building your farm from the ground up.

In Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town, you'll pitch a tent in the wilderness and look dang fine while doing it. XSeed shared a wagonload of new details about Olive Town's character customization and a few of the things players can get up to while down on the farm.

A la Animal Crossing: New Horizons, farmers start with the bare minimum once they arrive in the rough outskirts of Olive Town. There's no rundown farmhouse waiting for a cozy makeover. Instead, players set up a tent and work towards building their first house.

Eventually, they'll get a barbershop and other facilities to shake off the farm chore gloom with a brand-new look or twenty. Pioneers of Olive Town includes customization options for hair, eye color, skin tone, clothes, hats, and more, and XSeed said players can change these at any time.

In addition to plenty of human friends in Olive Town, from business owners to town founders, Pioneers includes the most essential friends of all: pets. Dogs and cats return, and if their trust grows enough, they can even take part in the town's annual Pet Derby.

It wouldn't be a Story of Seasons game without horsepower, and Pioneers of Olive Town had new ways of getting around. In addition to the trusty horse, players can tame different mounts, including wolves(!), or even ride a motorcycle or unicorn around town because of course, they can.

Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town releases March 23 for Nintendo Switch. Stay tuned for more in the coming weeks.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
