Marvelous has announced a PS4 version of Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town in Japan. Both physical and digital editions are priced at 5,980 yen (around $50). As of this writing, there has been no word on plans for an English version.

Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town initially launched for the Nintendo Switch in 2021, with a PC (Steam) release following later. It incorporates new mechanics such as a crafting system while retaining the series’ charms and key features. The game was criticized for some of the character dialogue that strayed from the series’ heartwarming atmosphere, and the game’s overall quality at launch, but has continued to improve via a steady stream of updates. In addition, the game received a major content update last November, which added an assortment of new content such as Spirit Quests and new post-marriage events.

The newly announced PS4 version is called Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town SPECIAL in Japan, and it includes the base game and the additional characters and sub-scenarios that are part of the Expansion Pass on other platforms. Additional costumes will be sold separately as a paid DLC called Waku Waku Outfit Set.


Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town SPECIAL is set to launch on July 28 in Japan. The official website can be found here.
