  • Nintendo Switch specific patch notes:

New features:

  • Hunting during winter: While the smaller animals go into winter hibernation, there’s other animals that suddenly appear as the snow starts falling on the ground. But beware that you must first find this menacing animal deep in the forest, and once confronted it’s much tougher than the regular small game that roamed outside the walls of your kingdom during spring, summer and autumn.
  • Foraging during winter: Since the farms can’t harvest during winter, the Farmers have discovered foraging to bring in a bit of extra income. It’s not much but every bit helps.
  • Shinobi: Who says being a stealth warrior at night is all we’re good for?! During long nights of waiting in ambush the Shinobi came up with a brilliant way to pass time during the day instead of just sleeping.
  • Introducing the Gem Chest: Those gems sure are a heavy burden to carry around while you explore for valuable upgrades to use gems on. Now you can lighten your purse and store the gems in a stone chest. This appears by the Wharf once you’ve upgraded your Kingdom to a Stone Castle. Storing gems is a costly business, so it won’t be free for the Monarch to offload those precious gems.
  • Other updates: In addition to the above there’s also fixes and changes such as an upgrade to the Stable to make switch Steeds more affordable, improving appearance of shops on the edge of your kingdom walls as you expand, and optimisation of save data compression, to mention a few. We have also included Brazilian-Portuguese as a language option and improved the Russian text.


  • Switching steeds in the stable is now more affordable.
  • Improved appearance of shops on the edge of your kingdom walls as you expand.


  • Forge now spawns correctly.
  • Added failsafe for rogue hermits which could cause it to become impossible to travel away from islands as the game was waiting for a hermit who never spawned to board the boat.
  • Improved Russian language option.
  • Optimized save data compression. This should prevent the save data to become too large which was the cause of the save issues.
  • Fixed graphical biome issue.

Kingdom: Two Crowns – Ver. 1.0.3

  • Release date: January 14th 2019 (North America, Europe) / January 15th 2019 (Japan)

Added a fix for corrupted, almost empty save data, that was sometimes caused by having a connection attempt fail with very particular timing
Fixed an issue that caused pikemen to fish double money when in an online game

Fixed that workers would also wander outside of the walls during greed attacks
Fixed an unlock requirement for the ‘There is No Greater Ruler Than Thou’ achievement
Fixed an issue where swapping steeds spawned by the Stables repeatedly in an online game could cause ridden steeds to move independently
