Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town – Details on character customisation, villagers

XSEED have shared the latest set of details for Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town, this time focusing on character customisation:

Farmers can create a look of their own by visiting Olive Town’s beauty salon, changing up everything from their hairstyle to facial features or skin color. To accompany their new makeover, players can change their character’s outfit to fit the season, bundling up for the winter or donning a breezy hat for long summer days. This customization extends to players’ farms, giving them the ability to upgrade from a tent pitched in the wilderness to a grand house where they can relax in comfort at the end of a long day’s work.

Once players have established their home, they can start building a family. All players can raise pets such as dogs or cats, building a relationship of trust and even bringing them into Olive Town to participate in the annual Pet Derby. And getting to the derby is easier than ever with new transportation options including motorcycles and friendly wolf mounts! Players who find love in Olive Town can have their partner move in with them and eventually raise a child together.
