The company also revealed the game has passed over 1.1 million in worldwide shipments.

Below are the following features included in the update:

Save Data Slots

The final patch update will give the game three save data slots.

New Hairstyles

Four new “Villager Hair” styles will be added for both the boy and girl characters. (Unlocked after completing the “Let’s Make a Room for the Villagers” builder recipe. The new hairstyles are not unisex.)

New Items

New items are also added to the game from the final update. The “Clear Card,” “Cloudy Card,” “Rain Card,” “Snow Card,” and “Storm Card” can be used to freely change the weather in the Isle of Awakening. (After obtaining the “Builder’s Eye” by completing all builder recipes, talk to the glowing hammerhood to get an idea for a recipe, which will then allow you to create the cards of the Magic Workstation.)

Hero’s Flag

Included in the final update is the “Hero’s Flag” system, allowing nearby villagers to follow the player character by holding the action button.
