Bandai Namco announced the video game adaptation of Akira Toriyama’s lesser-known manga, Sand Land, back in June of 2023 and since then, the hype around it has kept on increasing. So far, the game is slated for release on PC, PS4, PS5, and the Xbox Series X/S. But since the popularity of PC handhelds has shot through the roof in the past few years, many want to know if the game will be playable on devices like the Steam Deck, Lenovo Legion Go, and Rog Ally.
PC handhelds are becoming more and more mainstream nowadays, thanks to the release of Steam Deck. While there were a lot of handhelds before the Deck made its debut back in February 2022, they were mostly unable to pierce the mainstream market and remained very niche. But with the launch of Steam Deck, a lot changed. And now it’s only evident that players would want to know if a game like Sand Land will be supported on the Steam Deck, Lenovo Legion Go, and Asus Rog Ally. So, continue reading to find out all about that.
Sand Land game Steam Deck, Lenovo Legion Go, Asus Rog Ally Support Details
As of now, we are yet to get any confirmation about Sand Land landing on the Steam Deck, Asus Rog Ally, or even the Lenovo Legion Go. There are a lot of details about the game that both publisher Bandai Namco and developer ILCA haven’t given out. As we stated before, the game was just announced back in June 2023, so expecting information on the game to start flowing in immediately is out of the question.
So far, the only details the developers have shared are the gameplay mechanics and such, which were all shared through the SAND LAND: Dev Diaries. And up until now, there have been only three such posts. Besides that, as we previously mentioned, Bandai has announced the game for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. And that’s all the major information we have on the game.
Will Sand Land come to Steam Deck, Lenovo Legion Go, and Asus Rog Ally?
While we aren’t sure if Sand Land will be Deck Verified at release, we do have enough confidence in the game being playable on the Lenovo Legion Go and the Asus Rog Ally. Both of these handhelds are basically running Windows, and the game is going to be available for PC via Steam. So, unless the hardware requirements are too high, we are quite sure that Sand Land will be playable on Lenovo Legion Go and Rog Ally on Day One.
The Steam Deck, on the other hand, is a different topic entirely because it runs SteamOS. Although you can dual-boot Windows on the Deck and enjoy the game that way, it won’t be a very pleasant experience if the game’s requirements are high. Now, even if the game isn’t Deck Verified at the time of release, it should be playable at least, provided ICLA doesn’t go overboard with the requirements. But for now, all we can do is wait for more information on Sand Land to flow in.
