Farm'n Game Patch Updates, FS Video Contest Winners, and July Bokumono for Mobage Events | Posted at 01:15 PM 2020 7 03 July 2020

Happy Farm'n Friday! It's another week of stay-at-home, now with a state-wide facemask mandate. It's been interesting to see all the different designs of masks that everyone is coming up with. It's a mix of hand-made, construction, and surgical-style masks. Creativity is overflowing here!

Those in the USA who preordered Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town through Amazon.com have received email notification from the online retailer that the shipping date for the game + preorder plushie has been delayed. Instead of a July 14 release date delivery, the game is expected to ship from Amazon sometime between July 29 and August 28. The reason for the delay is unknown, though it may be a safe assumption that it is COVID related.

Recent Patches

This week, the patch to fix the invisible wall bug for the Nintendo Switch version of Stranded Sails: Explorers of the Cursed Islands was released. Roka Publishing apologized for the COVID-related delays with patching the game.

Also patched this week was the Japanese version of Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town. The game update released a few weeks ago (version 1.1.4) introduced a bug that removed the text from the overhead thought bubble to indicate something eaten was delicious or unpleasant. For example, the text bubble that appears above the cooking festival's gourmet's head while he tastes contest entries, or the text bubble that appears after eating the community stew during the fall harvest festival. The 1.1.5 patch added the missing text bubble back into the game.

The Switch edition of Summer in Mara has also recently been patched to fix various bugs and hiccups that came about when the game was released. Another patch has been submitted to Nintendo to review that will add some quality-of-life improvements to the Switch edition such as fast travel to islands that have been previously discovered and enabling Koa to craft and cook while away from her home island.
