The attractive-looking motion, crafting and farming title Sakuna: Of Rice and Spoil would possibly look like the proper match for the Change, however imagine it or not, this method wasn’t initially a part of the plan.
Chatting with Siliconera, XSEED video games government vp, Kenji Hosoi, revealed how Nintendo really approached them (a subsidiary of Marvelous) on a number of events about bringing the sport to the hybrid platform. It appears Edelweiss’ laborious work has paid off – because the Change model of the sport had about “2-to-1” pre-orders over the PlayStation four launch.
Right here it’s within the Hosoi’s phrases:
Initially our plan was to launch on PC and PS4 solely, however after Sakuna was introduced as being within the works, our Nintendo contact on the time reached out to us on a couple of event to think about releasing the sport on the Nintendo Change as nicely.
We have been initially hesitant on the primary few reach-outs, because it simply was not a part of the unique plan and we might have needed to reschedule every thing, however after a number of talks with Nintendo and listening to how passionate they have been concerning the recreation, we finally determined to launch the sport on the Change as nicely.
That wasn’t a simple ask for Edelweiss, however all of us agreed that Change could be a fantastic platform for the sport. In hindsight, we’re glad we took their request severely as we now have nothing however appreciation in direction of Nintendo for actively showcasing the sport, and when it comes to gross sales influence, we’re seeing nice launch orders on the Change—a few 2-to-1 over PS4.
