Independent developer Aurélien Regard and publisher Playdius today announced that Away: Journey to the Unexpected will launch for Nintendo Switch on February 7, 2019.
Away: Journey to the Unexpected is a feel-good first person adventure game that combines action, negotiation and rogue-lite elements, all rendered beautifully in a distinctive anime-inspired style.
