Game developer Edelweiss began streaming a preview video for its side-scrolling action platformer Sakuna: Of Rice And Ruin on Monday. The video shows the player character's deflections of enemy attacks.
Edelweiss has not yet announced a release date for the game. When XSEED Games announced plans to release an English version of the game, the company said the game would launch in 2018. The game will debut in Japan on PlayStation 4, and XSEED Games will release it on PS4 and PC.
XSEED Games describes the story as follows:
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 chaining attacks with her “celestial scarf,” a magical item that allows her to grapple distant enemies and platforms.
In the game, the player will learn to grow, harvest, and cultivate rice and other craft weapons. Players will also hone their battle skills and fight enemies.
