Marvelous has announced that Edelweiss’ Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin has shipped over 850,000 copies worldwide across the PlayStation 4, PC and Switch, this total also includes digital sales. The last reported figure of the game was in November 2020 when the game hit the 500,000 milestone. Edelweiss had previously confirmed interest in doing a sequel to the game, given the strong commercial performance, it seems likely that a sequel will be greenlit.

Details via Marvelous:

Spoiled harvest goddess Sakuna finds herself banished from her opulent celestial home to an island overrun with demons. In the untamed wilderness, she must rediscover her birthright as the daughter of a warrior god and harvest goddess by weathering the elements, fighting monsters, and cultivating rice, the source of her power. By her side in this forbidding place is her guardian Tama and a group of outcast humans. Together, these unlikely companions must join hands to tame both the soil and the demons of Hinoe Island.

Developed by Edelweiss, the indie team behind the acclaimed Astebreed, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin combines side-scrolling action with deep crafting and rice cultivation in a powerful tale about finding one’s place in the world.
