The latest issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly
features a nice preview of Mistwalker's Away: Shuffle Dungeon
, which also
happens to contain a nice bit of news: the game is given a January 2009 release date for North America, with Majesco
publishing. This is somewhat surprising since AQ Interactive, who is publishing in Japan, owns
an American game publisher; in addition, dungeon crawling is pretty divergent from the kind of casual games Majesco generally publishes.
Not that we're complaining, of course. Away
looks awfully clever, and we're just happy we'll get to play it. One warning: given the history
of this game, we wouldn't get our hopes up for it to make January.
