Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin out now

Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin, a side-scrolling beat-em-up crossed with a farming sim, is out now. Developed by two-man team Edelweiss, Sakuna has gorgeous visuals and cute character designs.

You play a disgraced agriculture goddess banished to an island full of demons, who must grow rice to become better at combat. Your aim, as the Steam description puts it, is to “tame both the soil and the demons of Hinoe Island.”

With a plot based on Japanese mythology and centred around rice, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is one huge celebration of Japanese culture. It’s also a more detailed simulation than you might expect, full of deep, detailed systems, from unlocking powerful fighting moves to creating the perfect compost.

Sakuna is available now for Switch, PS4 and PC at a price of £34.99 for the standard edition.
