Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin will soon receive a digital manga adaptation
Japanese publishing platform Hero's is bringing Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin into the manga realm. The company has announced that Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin – Gods of Ikusadatara will digitally debut its first chapter on November 26. Manga artist Jiji & Pinch is listed as creator, with direct supervision from Marvelous Entertainment.
Gods of Ikusadatara will be completely free for online readers. The catch, of course, is that it will also be completely in Japanese. We're uncertain as to whether the manga will ever be officially localized, but with a million copies shipped worldwide as of June 2021, I would wager there's a decent enough chance a translation sprouts up one way or another.
Rather than adapting the game's story, the manga creates an entirely new one. While traipsing about for cooking ingredients, Sakuna will stumble upon a mysterious berry. After she pops open the big berry, she discovers... babies. Two babies, to be exact. It's an interesting setup to say the least.
Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is available on PS4, Switch, and PC. You can simultaneously carry a cat and a dog.
