In a press release put out by EastAsiaSoft they have announced they will be publishing Trigger Witch, a new game by Rainbite, developers of 2018’s Reverie.
Trigger Witch seems to be aiming (no pun intended) to combine a classic Zelda style action-adventure game with a twin-stick shooter. The player will explore an expansive world from a top down perspective, solve puzzles, meet a host of charming characters, and blast the hell out of waves of enemies. In addition to single player, you can also hand a controller over to a friend for some couch co-op action.
No firm release date has been set for Trigger Witch yet, but they’re looking to launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch this summer. In addition to the digital release, EastAsiaSoft is also partnering with Playasia for a physical edition. Details on the whens and wheres will be released on a later date.

Trigger Witch is a stylized 2D twin-stick action game from the creators of Reverie, set in an odd open world where magic is outdated and firearms are the new way of life.

After a mysterious man invades her realm, events are set in motion that turn Colette’s life upside-down, casting her as the sole heroine with enough firepower to restore peace.
