Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin details cooking, farm tool creation

Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin

Marvelous has updated the Japanese official website for Edelweiss-developed action RPG Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin with information on the game’s cooking and farm tool creation elements.

Get the details below.

■ Cooking and Farm Tool Creation

Material Collection

You can obtain ingredients and minerals, which can be used to cook or forge farm tools, from collection sites such as grassy thickets, and from defeated enemies.


By eating food created with collected ingredients, you can gain effects such as a temporary power increase or spontaneous recovery. The effect will be greater if you cook with seasonal ingredients.

Processing Food Material

Food material will go bad as time goes by, but some food material can be processed for long-term preservation.

Forging and Weaving

By using materials, you can forge new weapons and garments. Weapons increase your attack power, while garments bestow special effects.

Unsealing True Power

By satisfying predetermined conditions, you can unseal the true power of equipment and unlock special effects. You can also equip Edatama that possess special effects.

You can ask other characters to collect materials for you. Depending on who you ask, their haul will differ and they may find things other than materials.
