Away: Journey to the Unexpected Arriving on February 7th

The news is in! We’ve just received word that indie developer Aurelien Regard’s feel-good adventure title Away: Journey to the Unexpected will be arriving on the Switch on February 7th. Published by Playdius, this is a game that’s been anticipated since the Switch was announced, and which we’ve given a few impressions of in our PAX coverage these past few years.

The remarkable thing about this title is that players enter an RPG-esque game with an anime feel as a hero with no real fighting abilities—rather, your skill is making friends. For real! You spend this “feel-good first person adventure” meeting others, negotiating, recruiting, exploring, and getting your new friends to fight off enemies for you.

Each time we’ve demo-ed the game, we’ve noticed significant improvements, so we suspect this will be quite the enjoyable experience by the time next February rolls around.

Dave will tell you that he likes to play video games, this is in fact a lie. What he really likes to do is buy games, and leaving them sitting unopened on his shelf. He is a monster.
