It has been formally announced that the rice farming action RPG “Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin” has exceeded worldwide sales totaling 1.5 million copies, a phenomenal achievement for the small Japanese outfit, Edelweiss who initially projected the sale of only 30,000 copies.

To mark the milestone, TOHO Animation revealed that an official anime adaptation of Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is in production by P.A. Works and is scheduled to premiere later this year.
