Building an exclusive town in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a wonderful way to get creative. However, if you're looking to try a new challenge, Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town could scratch the identical itch.

There a variety of similarities between Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town that produce satisfying gameplay. Collecting resources and ACNH Bells are primary ways of life in both titles. There are also home decorations to purchase or build, and also a large number of different outfits to accumulate. Both titles promote exploration.

Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town is really a farming simulation game with social aspects. The player inherits a run-down farm and embarks on the journey to recover it to its former glory while meeting and befriending the area townsfolk. Instead of passing time paying off debts to your neighborhood money-grubbing raccoon, players form groups with Olive Town's Mayor to mend and upgrade various structures in the city with the dreams of attracting traveling tourists to improve the economy.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons players who enjoyed Buy ACNH Bells and farming pumpkins through the fall update, in addition to the process of keeping flowers and fruit trees, could enjoy Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town. While Animal Crossing has limited farming options - without clear updates coming to the feature from now on months - Story of Seasons is primarily about farming.

While New Horizons allows personal customization in the island a gamer lives on, Story of Seasons fans could only alter certain parts of Olive Town by completing the Mayor's requests in the Town Hall. The farmstead is practically completely customizable, but then not enough personal design options around town could make Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town less attractive to island designers. Despite this, Animal Crossing: New Horizons fans may wish to give the new farming sim the opportunity and start an exciting new farming adventure.
