Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin recently passed a major sales milestone, and to celebrate, developer Edelweiss has added a new feature to improve the lives of its players — expanded interactions with adorable pets. The feature was announced in a press release touting the sales record, which was unofficially passed earlier in June 2021.
The new pet-related features in Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin include both dogs and cats. A dog will even greet players when they return home from an adventure. They’ll also be able to pick up a cat and a dog simultaneously. This pets-akimbo play style was previewed by the Twitter account Can You Pet The Dog?

This pets update also fixes bugs, implements balancing adjustments, and includes improvements “intended to keep seasoned players coming back for more.” Edelweiss also expanded Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin‘s accessibility by adding language support for Latin American Spanish and Simplified Chinese. Recently, the game joined the catalog of the Epic Games Store on PC. A global sale is also ongoing, with the game going for 30% off on all platforms, including EGS, Steam, the Nintendo eShop, and PSN Store.
Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is immediately available on PC, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. Check out Siliconera’s review of the game.
