Publisher Chucklefish and developer Pixpil have shared a launch trailer for Eastward, their new adventure title.

For those that haven’t been keeping up with our previous coverage, check out the following overview:

We have new gameplay from Eastward, an adventure game from publisher Chucklefish and developer Pixpil. The title is landing on Switch today.

Here’s some information about the game:

Eastward has thus far only been confirmed as a physical release on Switch in the west – at least at launch. But in Japan, it will be distributed by Kakehashi Games and will have two different boxed versions. Alongside a standard copy, fans will be able to pick up a collector’s edition.

The Eastward Collector’s Edition features a couple of physical goodies. Aside from the game, buyers will be given the original soundtrack and a mini figure. Note that all physical copies include two sticker sheets and reversible boxart.

Eastward has finally secured a release date. The game will be available on September 16, Chucklefish and Pixpil confirmed today.

Eastward will initially launch on Switch as a timed console exclusive.

Eastward was last planned for 2020 on Switch, but we now have a release window of 2021 – so hopefully we’ll be seeing it before the end of the year. We also have a new gameplay video shared by IGN below.

Publisher Chucklefish and developer Pixpil have announced Eastward for Switch. The “beautifully detailed and charismatic adventure game with RPG elements” is slated for 2020.
