The beautiful and gratifying side-scrolling action adventure game Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin by publisher XSEED Games and developer Edelweiss was recently shown off at E3 in a 21-minute video:
Play as a goddess, where rice is nice!
Play as Sakuna, a spoiled goddess banished into an island filled with outcast humans as she explores, fights demons, grow rice, craft weapons and cook in her mountain village home. Wack demons with swift farming tools in ancient Japan and topple their balance with her celestial scarf.
The following features were found in the game:
- The game comes with optional English and Japanese voice-overs.
- Although the battle is in 2D side-scrolling, the mountain village home is explored and farmed in 3D elements.
- Quality of farmed rice may effect stats and play style
- Cooking will buff stats
The game will open harvest this coming winter 2019 for PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC.
