The gorgeous, retro-inspired RPG Eastward will finally be making its way to where it belongs: A physical version, to sit on our nerd-shelves just like its inspirations Earthbound and The Legend of Zelda.
Publisher Chucklefish, developer Pixpil, and physical publishers Skybound Games and iam8bit have all teamed up together to create a special edition of Eastward for the Nintendo Switch, which is available to pre-order now from the iam8bit website for $34.99 / £29.99, alongside Collector’s Editions and a vinyl pressing of the soundtrack.
The regular physical edition also includes a chibi sticker pack, but it looks like it won’t include a manual, which is a shame for those of us who really love retro guff (but probably for the best — our collection is too big as it is).
The game will begin shipping on May 24th 2022.
