Just yesterday, XSEED Games showcase their new side-scrolling action platformer game, Sakuna: Of Rice And Ruin, (Tensui no Sakuna Hime) which will launch for the PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC in North America on November 10th. Marvelous Europe also revealed that it will release the game in Europe and Australia on November 20th.
The game will also come with a physical copy for the PS4 and Switch. It’ll have a standard edition as well as a special “Divine Edition,” which includes a custom outer box with exclusive artwork, an artbook with over 130 pages of illustrations and concept art, the original soundtrack with 42 songs on 3 CDs, and a Japanese “omamori” charm “to bring owners good luck in combat and farming.”
XSEED Games describes the story:
Players take on the role of Sakuna, a proud yet lonely harvest goddess who is banished to a dangerous island with a group of outcast humans. Sakuna tames the island by defeating demons using farm tools as weapons while chaining attacks with her “celestial scarf,” a magical item that allows her to grapple distant enemies and platforms.– XSEED Games
Gameplay-wise, the player must learn to grow, harvest, and cultivate rice as well as learning to craft weapons. Players will also hone their battle skills and fight enemies.
Originally, the game was supposed to release in Winter of 2019 last year, but was delayed to a later date (November 10th-20th).
