Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin managed to steal a lot of hearts when it came out last year. The blend of quick-paced action and methodical rice farming, all carried by a lovely artstyle, was a hit and has continued to sell well. So much so, that in a recent Marvelous Fiscal Briefing it was announced the game has shipped 950,000 copies worldwide.

That’s nothing to scoff at for a brand new IP developed by a small team (in this case, Edelweiss), and bodes well for anyone hoping for a follow up of some sort. These numbers date from the end of March 2021 and are likely a bit higher by now. Here’s to a continuing bountiful harvest as Sakuna makes its way towards the one million mark.

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.
