We’ve had our eye on Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin for some time now. XSeed’s upcoming title rooted in Japanese mythology blends two contrasting types of gameplay with a spoiled lead character and eye-catching visuals to make something as delightful as its namesake grain.

 

 

In the latest trailer, we get to see Sakuna venture out to ward off demons and gather resources, as well as the more laidback rice farming gameplay. It looks to rest somewhere between Muramasa and Okami with its ideas, and I’m all for that. 

In their latest blog post, XSeed also introduced the game’s English voice cast and their characters. If you’re already drawn into its world, I’d definitely recommend reading through to learn a bit more ahead of Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin’s release on Tuesday, November 10th.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
