About this item

Inspired by tales of their grandfather’s pioneering days, the protagonist decides to pack their bags and leave the hustle and bustle of big city life for the frontier in Olive Town. When they arrive, they run into Victor, the town’s mayor and their grandfather’s old friend. He brings them to the old farm, which has been reclaimed by nature over the years. Determined to breathe life back into their grandfather’s dream and follow in his footsteps, the protagonist rolls up their sleeves and gets to work. Olive Town—which is just a stone’s throw away from the farm—is a port town built on the tip of a peninsula. It might be a quiet little town, but it is home to a whole host of unique characters. And while the townsfolk get by well enough in this picturesque seaside locale, a little more tourism never hurt anyone... The long-awaited brand new entry in the original farm/life simulation franchise, known in Japan as Bokujo Monogatari, makes its debut on Nintendo Switch, bringing players more freedom than ever before to shape an untamed wilderness and customize their farm down to the very tile. A new cast of marriage candidates, a town that grows and thrives along with your farm, and a request system highlight the new features, all while retaining the core elements of the STORY OF SEASONS series. Finding Earth Sprites while exploring your farmland may lead you to mysterious, fantastical lands such as gardens where the seasons never change, an island in the sky, or even the inside of a volcano! Capture memorable moments with your camera to share online with others as loading screens, or make use of the “tourist” system to send your farmer to other players’ towns as a sightseeing visitor.

    Harvest Moon at its best!

    Owned for more than 2 years by when reviewed.

    I love farming sims with great characters and a relaxing gameplay loop. SOS: PoOT is a great example of this and a wonderful entry point for anyone new to Story of Seasons / Harvest Moon.

    Perfect for a Chill Farm Sim!

    Owned for less than 1 week by when reviewed.

    This game is such a big step up from the previous ones in the series. It’s so pretty! I also really appreciate that the team was willing to listen to community feedback and make changes/patches accordingly. I’m excited for the DLC to come out!

    Another Great (REAL) Harvest Moon Game


    I've been playing the Bokujō Monogatari series since it came to the West as Harvest Moon in 1997, and still have my SNES cartridge. This is a bit of a departure in that you don't need individual tools to care for animals anymore (finally!) and you need to use Makers to produce/refine your materials as opposed to just harvesting/chopping/pulling them. This becomes slightly cumbersome after awhile as you need fields of Makers to achieve your goals. There are elements borrowed from Animal Crossing, as well, such as starting your farm from scratch, while sleeping in a tent. All of that said, this is an excellent entry into the series. I've been playing since release day, fairly nonstop. The customisation of placing farm buildings precisely where you want them, and the gradual progression of unlocking more areas with newer materials upon your farm itself is rewarding. My only complaint is the maker system needs some redoing, which I suspect/hope they can tune up in future planned updates. Being able to make stacks in the makers, as well as in requesting identification of Treasure at the museum, would make the game ideal. The Buffalo plush and fabric wall hanging included with this are very good quality, definitely worth the extra $10 purchase price. I absolutely love that there is a physical booklet included. Too few games do that these days. (Please note that the Marvelous Harvest Moon games since Animal Parade have not ACTually been Bokujō Monogatari/"real" Harvest Moon titles. Don't let the more recent "Harvest Moon" games swear you off the series entirely.) TL;DR: IF you enjoy Animal Crossing, crafting games, or other Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons titles, you should definitely give this one a chance, too.
