XSEED Games and Edelweiss have revealed that Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin will release on Nintendo Switch.

From the two-man team behind Astebreed, the game combines side-scrolling action with crafting and farming simulation.

You play as Sakuna, a spoiled harvest goddess banished to a dangerous island with a group of outcast humans.

As she explores the beautiful, forbidding environments of the island, she will also find a home in a mountain village, proving herself worthy of her title by harvesting rice and bettering the lives of humans.

In addition to being a fresh take on Japanese mythology and a love letter to action games, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is an ode to rice and an engrossing simulation of the craft behind the agriculture.

Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin will release for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Winter 2019.
