15th of September 2023 - Hello Japan! Update

[ Edited ]

This is a transcript of the official blog notes. Thanks to EA Creator Network for sharing this information.


A revisit to the land of the rising sun you’ll remember for a long time to come.


Sul Sul!


Sim Festival Season Fourteen brings back “Hello Japan!”. We are excited to open up The Sims Mobile vault to give players a look at our most imaginative limited content runs. Given how long it has been since “Hello Japan!” was originally released, we realized how this would be an amazing opportunity to allow players to revisit and rediscover all the goodness all over again. Yamachan returns as well, as your animated friend and educated guide. It’s time to let your Sims fill themselves with joy, positivity, and tranquility!


This Festival Pass does come with new additions to it so that both new and old players have something to look forward to! This includes a new Treasure Hunt that celebrates 100 Years of Hollywood, and two new Sweet Treat Showdowns! We also have Pastel Positano–a new house template based on the Italian Amalfi coast–and a brand-new story that revolves around a certain garden gnome and bickering couple!


What’s new with the Festival Pass?

The Festival pass is being increased from 60 tiers to 70 tiers, as we have some brand-new items that are being added to the Premium Track of the Festival Pass. They are as follows:


  • Blooming Spring Floral Skirt (Tier 13)
  • Yamachan Outfit (Tier 27)
  • Paper Charm Lanterns (Tier 37)
  • When Spring Begins Snow Jacket (Tier 40)
  • Ocean Weaves Bed (Tier 55)


A few Items from the previous Premium Pass have been moved to the Free Pass so players who missed out on it last time can obtain them by playing the Free Track. Those items are:


  • Ssh! Shoji Screen Door
  • Absolute Smokeshow Eyeshadow
  • A Koiful Pond
  • Harmonious Shoji Screen Wall

Here’s a dive into everything that’s new, amazing, and exciting with Sim Festival Season Fourteen:


Pastel Positano - House Template

When will the fix update be to this update? Still stuck in izzys and missing out on all the events and wasted money you won't refund.
