Edelweiss has released the Comic Market 92 demo trailer for its side-scrolling action title, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin, which you can check out above. The game will be localized by XSEED Games for North American release in 2018.
Here’s an official overview (via Gematsu):
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.
Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is headed to the PlayStation 4 and PC. In case you missed it, you can watch its E3 2017 trailer here.
