Nintendo Download: Mixing Beats and Genres in Harmonious Fusion

Coming off of a big week for Switch gamers, the Nintendo Download is a little smaller in scale, though some possible gems shine through.

Harness the power… of rice

An interesting week this coming week, to be sure for Switch gamers. The Nintendo console has a bunch of smaller releases, as well as a couple of larger ones, including the Switch debut of Tropico.

But sims about building your own tropical dictatorship aside, this week’s headline title is Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin. And if you think that sounds weird, it kind of is. In Sakuna, you play as the daughter of two gods, who finds herself a mortal and stranded on Earth.

Sakuna (that’s her name) must battle monsters with her ragtag group of followers, and raise rice. You see, that’s the source of her power. I guess that makes sense, since carbs and all.

As mentioned though, there’s a bunch of smaller stuff this week. So if none of the above floats your boat, maybe something else here will. Scroll down for the full listing.

  • Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin – Sakuna finds herself banished from her opulent celestial home to an island overrun with demons. 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. Discover the true power of rice with both side-scrolling action and 3D simulation-style gameplay. Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin will be available on Nov. 10.
