Away: Journey to the Unexpected looks really quite lovely. Stylish, cute, and clearly heavily inspired by Japanese animation, it's amongst the best-looking mobile games on the horizon. Developed by a two-person team, this story-driven rogue-lite is now making its way over to iOS after launching first for consoles last year.

You'll explore its magical 3D world filled with charming 2D characters while engaging in some light action and chatting to the cast. Along the way, you'll build up your roster of heroes and learn to utilise their unique abilities in combat. It's all played from a first-person perspective, and it seems to be the case that your primary weapon is a stick.


It comes in at around 3-5 hours on average, which actually sounds quite refreshing given how lengthy (or arguably overlong) so many games in the genre can be.

You can also expect an anime-themed soundtrack composed by Kazuhiko Naruse and sung by Aya Majiro. The trailer above gives a little hint of what to expect.

All told, this looks super promising, and I can see its relatively straightforward action translating well to touchscreen controls. Away: Journey to the Unexpected is currently set to launch for iOS on July 1st as a premium game priced at $6.99. Switch owners can grab it now from the Nintendo eShop.
