Essential Nintendo Switch Games for the 2020 Holiday Season

Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin

ESRB Rating: T
Price: $39.99
Get it on: Amazon (physical), eShop (digital)

An action-platformer, farming hybrid, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is surprisingly robust for something that appears so simple. Despite that, Sakuna is a deceptively deep game with realistic farming mechanics, so much so that a guide to growing real rice on the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fishery website is applicable to the game!

You can read more about Sakuna and its intricacies in our review, in which it netted a perfect 10 for a "solid plot, with touching character stories, unexpected twists, and a fun riff on mythology," as well as an "incredibly detailed and rewarding farm system."
