One of the questions is: does Story of Season: Pioneers of Olive Town have any online functionality or multiplayer modes? Here are your answers.

Does Story of Season: Pioneers of Olive Town have any multiplayer modes?

Unfortunately not. Unlike games like Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Nintendo has confirmed that Story of Season: Pioneers of Olive Town is strictly a single-player only game.

Thankfully, while you may not be able to communicate with your friends, there are plenty of characters who will happily join in conversations with you.

Does Story of Season: Pioneers of Olive Town have any Online functionality?

As there is no multiplayer element to Story of Season: Pioneers of Olive Town, the online functionality of the game is extremely limited. Players won’t be able to visit other versions of Olive Town, or trade crops, instead, the only online elements are Cloud Saves and photo sharing.

This means that players will be able to back up their game to the cloud and should anything happen to the Switch, it will be recoverable. This is provided they pay for the Nintendo Switch Online subscription.

Players can also upload photos taken with the in-game camera for other players to see.
