E3 2018: Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin Hands-On Preview
Don't speak ill of the Goddess of the Harvest.

Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin deserves to be called the cutest game at E3 2018. It's full of charm and beauty, and every time I look at Sakuna I just want to squish her cheeks together! The game has been a mainstay at the last two shows, but this year there was not one but two demos for us to sink our teeth into, each demonstrating a completely different gameplay mechanic. I mean, who else has thought of combining an RPG with rice farming before?

With XSEED attached to the project, we're pretty confident this is going to be a great little title, but if you need some convincing, I got some time with both demos at this year's E3. Check out my Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin hands-on preview to see how it handles combat and farming in preparation for its Winter 2018 release date.
