Marvelous and Edelweiss have announced that Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin sales reached a new milestone. The rice-farming action game hybrid now sits at 850,000 in units shipped. This number also includes digital sales. While those aren’t huge sales by any means, it’s quite the feat for Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin which started out as an indie title.
In Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin, players take on hordes of demons in side-scrolling action while also tending a field of rice at the mountain village.
If you’re curious to see how the game plays, check out the trailer with info from the publisher below:
Spoiled harvest goddess Sakuna finds herself banished from her opulent celestial home to an island overrun with demons. In the untamed wilderness, she must rediscover her birthright as the daughter of a warrior god and harvest goddess by weathering the elements, fighting monsters, and cultivating rice, the source of her power. By her side in this forbidding place is her guardian Tama and a group of outcast humans. Together, these unlikely companions must join hands to tame both the soil and the demons of Hinoe Island.
Developed by Edelweiss, the indie team behind the acclaimed Astebreed, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin combines side-scrolling action with deep crafting and rice cultivation in a powerful tale about finding one’s place in the world.
Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is out now for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
