SAND LAND: Dev Diaries - Episode 4: Forest Land

Samantha Reinert: Hello! Thanks for watching the SAND BOX! This is, unfortunately, our last episode, but we hae some super interesting stuff to dive in today!


Keishu Minami: Hello. I'm Keishu Minami and I am the producer of SAND LAND! While this is the last episode, we've got information to share that we hope you'll find interesting.


Samantha Reinert: Recently, a new trailer revealed a new world beyond Sand Land! I'm sure everyone would love to hear about that…


Keishu Minami: Yes, Forest Land! Forest Land is a green world with lush vegetation, unlike Sand Land, which is a vast expanse of desert. Forest Land also has villages and towns where people live. Also, you'll be able to find new monsters.


Keishu Minami: To explain in more detail, Sand Land and Forest Land were neighboring coutries that have never been on good terms. Until now, there has been a tacit understanding of non-aggression between the two, with only minor skirmishes near the border. However, an incident has led to a disturbing development involving the Forest Land Army.


Samantha Reinert: Well then, the relationship between Sand Land and Forest Land, being polar opposites, seems quite interesting indeed.


Samantha Reinert: The story of SAND LAND, which is full of mysteries, is certainly interesting, but I'm sure many fans are urious as to what awaits them in the world beyond.


Samantha Reinert: Please tell us some highlights about what it's like to adventure in the world of Forest Land.


Keishu Minami: The story's main character is Beelzebub, but there will be new characters and vehicles that we'll meet in Forest Land, as well as new enemies that stand in the way of Beelzebub and his friends. The most interesting part involves the new original character Ann and the secrets on her past. I hope you'll enjoy playing the game to find out!


Samantha Reinert: So we'll be meeting new vehicles and characters in Forest Land! Ann seems to be playing a big role, but are there any other characters you'd like to introduce ?


Keishu Minami: Well, there is a new character named Lango, who supports Beelzebub and his friends in Forest Land. Just like there's the Kingdom of Sand Land, there's also a Forest Land Palace, but some of these characters do not think highly of fiends… I hope you'll see how these encounters and conflits between Beelzebub and the new characters play out.


Samantha Reinert: So, new adventures will unfold with Beelzebub and friends' new encounters!


Samantha Reinert: Are there any other elements you would like fans to look forward to ?


Keishu Minami:  Ann, who I mentioned briefly earlier, was completely designed by Toriyama-sensei itself!


Keishu Minami: Sand Land and Forest Land are similarly voluminous, and some vehicles will be made available as you progress through the story of Forest Land. You can also go back-and-forth between the two worlds at any time during the game, so that you can return to Sand Land to complete any unfinished subquests, meaning you can play both words to the fullest!


Keishu Minami: It's my hope you'll be able to fully experience the world of Beelzebub, his friends, and Toriyama-sensei's unique vehicles.


Samantha Reinert: It does indeed seem like the content is quite voluminous! Just imagining being able to explore not only Sand Land but also Forest Land as well is so exciting!


Samantha Reinert: We've been able to discuss a lot about the appeal of SAND LAND, so what did you all think ? Thank you, Minami-san, for everything you've been able to tell us!


Keishu Minami: I'm glad to be able to tell everyone directly about some of the best parts of the game. We would be very happy if as many people as possible become interested in SAND LAND and get to play it themselves. Please look forward to the release of the game!


Samantha Reinert: Thanks for watching our last episode, and make sure you're following the official SAND LAND accounts linked below as we get ready for launch! Bye bye!
