Sakuna Of Rice and Ruin art book

Thanks to PIE International, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is getting an official art book. It will include character designs plus sketches, prop designs, background art, package illustrations, and more. The book will also have comments from director Nal, main artist Ryota Murayama, and Koichi (general / planning assistance).

What might be the most noteworthy aspect of the book is that it will actually feature English text. It’ll be included right alongside all of the Japanese information. The book has thus far only been announced for Japan, but even if we don’t see it in North America / Europe, importing will be an option. Play-Asia actually already has pre-orders here.

Below are a few preview pages from the Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin art book:

The Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin art book will release on October 21 in Japan for 2,750 yen. It will have 168 pages (160 in color, all B5 format).

Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin, which came to Switch last November, has been a huge success. Despite having an initial sales target of less than 50,000 units, it has gone on to sell over one million copies. The game has also seen crossovers of sorts with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town, and Metallic Child.
