Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin Comiket 92 Trailer Released
It was released by Edelweiss, the Comic Market (Comiket) 92 demo trailer for their upcoming Playstation 4 and PC game, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin.
Check out the demo trailer of Sakuna: of Rice and Ruin (Japanese), featuring some gameplay footage:
“Developed by Edelweiss, the talented indie creators of the highly rated sci-fi shoot-’em-up Astebreed, and revealed last year in Japan at Comic Market 90, Sakuna offers a genre-defying mixture of side-scrolling action with the complexities of rice cultivation set against the mystical backdrop of Japanese mythology. Sakuna is now confirmed for release in North America on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC.
In Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin, 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 also making ample use of her “celestial scarf,” a magical item that allows her to grapple distant enemies and platforms. Along the way, she establishes a home in a mountain village, which serves as a base of operations for crafting weapons and cooking food. Additionally, as a harvest goddess, she grows rice by following a detailed process that encompasses everything from planting to harvesting. Through this process, across each of the four seasons, she’s able to improve the harvest and hone her battle skills alike.
The painstakingly researched storyline incorporates Japanese history and legend, with its heroine facing off against numerous types of demons, great and small, as she traverses detailed landscapes rich with the iconography of classic Japanese mythology. A love letter to Japanese culture, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is also an ode to the artistry of cultivating rice, and features an engrossing simulation of the craft behind the agriculture.
Comic Market 92, or Comiket for short, will run from August 11 to 13 at Tokyo Big Sight in Odaiba.
Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is due out for PlayStation 4 and PC in 2018. XSEED Games will publish the game in North America.”
