Mutazione – Ver. ??? (Penpal Update)

  • Release date: October 22nd 2021 (North America, Europe)
  • Patch notes:

Two years have passed since Mutazione’s original launch, and now – two years on from the events of the original game – this new “Penpal” DLC allows you to return to the game’s world to catch up with your favourite characters. You’ll be able to draft letters, catch up on the gossip, and see photographs from characters like Tung and Miu. Penpal Mode is a durational experience that expands to the space of a week, which means each letter will take 24 hours to unlock. This free DLC offers a gentle epilogue expanding on the story’s conclusion.


Just like the Garden Mode and the 7 Gardens updates, Penpal includes new seeds for players to earn! Even more special, you’ll receive those seeds from your friends in Mutazione alongside their letters!

  • Additional notes: this update also added touchscreen support on Nintendo Switch.
