Akira Toriyama is staying incredibly relevant right now, as he is a direct consultant on the SAND LAND game and is known for both Dragon Ball and Dragon Quest, the latter of which was just announced on yesterday’s Nintendo Direct.
SAND LAND ART STYLE
Other anime-inspired RPGs like One Piece Odyssey stick with the distinct anime art style that is easily recognized. SAND LAND does it a little differently, adding cel-shading over the traditional style bringing something new to the table.
SAND LAND COMBAT & TRAVERSAL
The demo only allowed for a strict, timed session, so not many story beats were revealed. I did, however, traverse the world on foot and in a tank, both offering unique ways to take on the desert.
