About six months ago drops of an adaptation of ‘Sand Land‘, a self-contained story of Akira Toriyama set in a post-apocalyptic world plagued by demons. At first things weren’t very clear and it seemed that we might have an anime or a videogame on us… But in the end, we will have both.
Why Not Both?
The ‘Sand Land’ movie is highly confirmed and opens this summer in Japan to take us on a road trip in search of a lost lake, but if the anime is not enough, this week it has also been confirmed that the video game is already underway .
When this ‘Sand Land Project’ was revealed a few months ago, many fans expected it to be a video game, especially since bandai namco They were also involved in garlic, and in the end crossing our fingers has worked.
It seems that the video game is going to follow the same aesthetics and the line of the film, although will allow us to get into the skin of Beelzebubthe prince of demons, as he searches for the legendary spring together with sheriff Rao and the demon Thief to end the great drought in his world.
The movie of ‘Sand Land‘ opens in Japan on August 18 (and here we are while waiting to see if there is an international premiere), but the Action RPG It doesn’t have a release date yet. Although it is very possible that it will arrive at the end of the year so as not to lose the pull of the anime film, at least we know that it will be available for PS5, XBox Series X | S, PS4 and PC.
Obviously, ‘Sand Land‘ It can’t measure up to its older sister ‘Dragon Ball’, but it’s nice that Toriyama’s other manga are being given so much love (and with so much enthusiasm).
