AWAY: Journey to the Unexpected gets a February release date and shows off its Japanese influences during the Kinda Funny Games Showcase

December 8, 2018

Today during the Kinda Funny Games Showcase, we got a release date for the upcoming FPS Away: Journey to the Unexpected. The game releases February 2019; starting the 5th on PS4, the 7th for Switch, and 8th for Xbox One. There is a PC version coming, though no solidified date other than February 2019.

Playdius Games also mentions that they are incorporating Japanese development with their music and animations within the game. For those unaware, AWAY features 2D characters within the three-dimensional world. Players make friends within the world and get to play as these acquired allies, such as monsters and mechs.


The addition of Japanese influence seems like a good fit for a game that values its bright and lively aesthetic. This upbeat Japanese music will be perfect for those looking to get a little anime out of their first-person shooters.

You can watch up on the previous trailer, which showcases its quick movement and action paired with it’s fun and 2D character models.
