TOKYO – March 17, 2022 – Publisher CREST INC announced today that its popular sci-fi rogue-lite Metallic Child will release its first two DLCs “Of Rice and Cores” and “Kokorowa” on March 31th. The DLC will feature a cross-over with Edelweiss’ Japanese-style action game Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin and will feature exclusive weapons, character and stage customizations bringing the world of Sakuna into the battlefield of Metallic Child. Both DLCs will be available for purchase on both Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam for $7.99.
