Publisher Ratalaika Games and developer Stranga today announced Ashina: The Red Witch for Switch. A release is planned for August 25, 2023.

Ashina: The Red Witch is an exploration-based story-adventure game that tasks players with finding a way back home and saving the main character’s sister. Learn more about it in the following overview:

Ashina: The Red Witch is a gripping action-adventure game set in a mystical world of the after-life. The central character, Ash, is a young ordinary girl, working in a bathhouse above her apartment. Ash will embark on a perilous journey through the spirit world to save her twin sister, Tena, and find a way home. Strange creatures, interesting characters and memorable moments will unfold as the story unfolds..

Throughout her long journey Ash must find a spirit known as a “Gatekeeper” to create a portal back to the land of the living and along her way help those spirits in need. She will forge an odd partnership with a mischievous spirit named Tanto who dragged her into this mess in the first place by stealing Ash’s late mother’s pendant.

The game starts off in Ash’s cosy apartment after she and her sister gather some ingredients for a late night dinner. There are a number of objectives and tasks that will be part of the overall game experience. Finding items, exploring, repairing things, solving puzzles and a whole host more of cleverly devised action encased in an strong and intriguing storyline marks Ashina: The Red Witch as a little game full of surprises.

Everything in Ashina: The Red Witch is hand-drawn pixel artwork with hand-drawn lighting to help bring the magical world to life. The game’s top-down and side-on perspectives provide players with a unique and dynamic visual experience as they explore diverse landscapes, from the town of Shiruta, the City and its sewers of Chikara, even the ancient forest.
