Developed by Astebreed studio Edelweiss, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin combines side-scrolling platforming with harvest simulation and elements of Far Eastern scripture.
Players take on the role of the eponymous Sakuna, a harvest goddess who finds herself banished from her celestial home to the untamed, demon-infested wilderness of Hinoe Island. Together with her guardian, Tama, and a band of exiled humans, the heroine must weather the elements, defeat the monster hordes and cultivate the landscape.
A special edition version of Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is available to pre-order for the collectors out there. The Golden Harvest Edition is a boxed release that comes bundled with a 132-page artbook, a three-disc soundtrack CD collection and a double-sided poster.
Published by Marvelous Europe, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin can be pre-ordered through the Nintendo eShop ahead of its release on 20th November. The standard edition is priced at £34.99 and the Golden Harvest Edition has a suggested retail price of £49.99.
The game will be release for PlayStation 4 on the same day it hits Switch, with a digital launch on Windows PC already available as of of 10th November.
