XSEED Games reveals the special retail edition for upcoming action/simulation game Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin, developed by the 2-man team at Edelweiss. The game will be launching later in 2020 for the PS4, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC, with two retail editions for the PS4 and Switch. The standard retail release is priced at $39.99 while the “Divine Edition” will be available at $59.99. Either edition can be pre-ordered via the XSEED Games Store and participating retailers.
The Divine Edition will come with a custom outer box with exclusive artwork, containing the retail edition of the game on your platform of choice, a large 8.2” x 5.8” artbook with over 130 pages of illustrations and concept art from the title, a full OST of 42 songs on 3 CDs, and a special 2” x 3” Japanese omamori charm to bring owners good luck in combat and farming.
Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin will have the following features:
- Refined Side-scrolling Platform Action‒ Using farm tools as weapons, chain together quick, heavy, and special attacks to take down demonic beasts, while mastering the magical “divine raiment” will be essential to grapple distant platforms, evade danger, and overcome powerful enemies.
- Detailed 3D Simulation-style Gameplay‒ Learn the ancient art of agriculture by following detailed steps from planting to harvesting to cultivate the perfect crop. As a harvest goddess, Sakuna’s strength grows with each successful rice crop, with attributes such as aesthetic and flavor directly correlating to her combat abilities.
- Creating a Home in the Wilderness‒ Sakuna’s mortal companions make weapons, armor, and meals for her using the materials and ingredients she gathers on her adventures, and completing quests for them will unlock even more options.
- A Fresh Take on Japanese Mythology‒ The heroine is part of a pantheon of gods and demons inspired by traditional Japanese mythology but featuring many unique twists. The story and world are filled with lovingly rendered details, some familiar and some completely original.
