Preorders have opened for Eastward, due out September 16 for Nintendo Switch, and for Mac and Windows through Steam and GOG stores.

Developed by Shanghai-based independent studio Pixpil and published through Chucklefish Games, the adventure game incorporates RPG elements and a striking visual style combining contemporary 3D effects with nostalgic sprite art.

Traversing a fictional near-future cross-country railway, protagonists John and Sam take on monsters and join new party members, while exploring cities and towns plagued by a deadly miasma and teetering on collapse. The 73-track digital soundtrack also launches September 16 on Bandcamp and Steam.

Trailer music track "Iron Carbine" by The Unfinished Swan composer Joel Corelitz is previewed on Bandcamp, while the two-hour music score is complemented by sound design in-game by Hyperduck Soundworks of Dust: An Elysian Tail.

An English-language Collector's Edition bundled with the soundtrack CD can be ordered domestically through Play-Asia. From the product page:
