XSEED Games, the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., has recently announced the global launch of their long-awaited action/simulation game Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin for Windows PC via Steam.
The game follows the unforgettable story of Princess Sakuna, a harvest goddess banished to an untamed island with a group of humans, brought to life by Japanese video game developer, Edelweiss. Acclaimed for their work on the action shoot ’em up 3D video game, Astebreed, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin presents a return to the combat-focused platforming roots of their earlier title, Fairy Bloom Freesia, featuring refined action gameplay mixed with unique rice-farming simulation.
Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin combines side-scrolling action with deep crafting and rice cultivation, with players taking on the role of Sakuna, a spoiled harvest goddess banished to a dangerous island with a group of human outcasts. As she explores the beautiful yet forbidding environments of the island, she finds a home in a mountain village, proving herself worthy of her title by harvesting rice and bettering the lives of humanity. With each successful rice crop, Sakuna grows more powerful in her daily battles against the demons that have overrun the island.
The game’s central character, Sakuna is part of a pantheon of gods and demons in a world inspired by traditional Japanese history and culture, but with the feature of many unique twists. In addition to serving as a love letter to Japanese mythology, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is an ode to the artistry of cultivating rice and an engrossing simulation of the craft behind agriculture.
“It’s been an honor to be a part of Edelweiss’ journey in bringing Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin to launch. We’ve had incredible support from our platform partners, fans, and critics alike and are overjoyed to be able to share Sakuna’s world with the public now,” said Kenji Hosoi, Executive Vice President at XSEED Games.
Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin has been launched globally on November 10, and is currently available on Windows PC via Steam, with the standard edition being available for $39.99, and the digital deluxe edition available for $54.99.
The digital deluxe edition for Steam will include the Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin game, a digital version of the 130-page artbook and a 42-track digital soundtrack.
