So here's this beautiful farming-fighting-side scroller that debuted in the Japanese Nintendo Direct Mini, but is still coming out here on November 20th.  It looks beautiful, and what with that weird hookshot-like thing helping you climb, looks like it could be pretty fun to play too.  I'm up for playing as a rice goddess - how about the rest of you?

This actually looks gorgeous, and was by far the best thing in the direct . . . so why wasn't it in our direct?

One of life's great questions. It looks at first glance like the sort of game that might only come out in Japan, but it isn't. Bizarre.

Aye, that does look alright and I thought I was onto something when I noticed it was published by Marvelous in Japan & Xseed here but they are just a subsidiary anyway so the different publisher reason probably doesn't work.

The popular theory was that this whole mini Direct only happened because Nintendo had some contractual obligations to show off third party games which would have been in the E3 show. Perhaps Sakuna was only required for aJapan showing?

Shin Megami would like a word but yes this does look good but as I said elsewhere the Japanese Direct I had plenty I'm looking forward to

I just wrote a post in another thread saying I don't like things any more, but I take that back pretty sharpish - this looks lovely! I didn't bother checking the video when it was pointed out that Japan saw games we didn't, as I assumed it meant they weren't for us - but that's a pleasant surprise. If I was in the room with someone else, I'd be saying "Wow, aren't those crops realistic!", probably to some confusion.

Oh wow, that looks lush! The combat looks really neat and it looks like it'll be a visual treat. One to keep an eye on, for sure!

You're half way to a cheesy rapping TV commercial there.

The combat is really neat
It is a visual treat.
The music is an Asian delight
And these bad guys put up a fight.
It's one to keep an eye on for sure.
This game is never a bore.
If you're not playing Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin
You might as well be sitting in your pants pooing.

Laughing

I mean if this was late '80s Nintendo we were dealing with here, that might actually have happened.

Genuinely think this would be a better strategy than what's going to happen, which is that it won't get advertised in the West at all.

Sad, but true. Sad

Hopefully it'll pick up some word of mouth buzz provided it's a good 'un!
