Trigger Witch gets physical for PS5 and Nintendo Switch

Tokyo/Hong Kong – July 12, 2021 – Independent developer and publisher, Eastasiasoft Limited, today announced that twin-stick action-adventure Trigger Witch will receive physical editions for PlayStation®5 and Nintendo Switch.

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Witch is a stylized 2D twin-stick action game from the creators of Reverie, set in an odd open world where magic is outdated and firearms are the new way of life. Players assume the role of Colette, a prospective graduate from the Stock, an academy for Witchcraft and Triggery. 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.

Trigger Witch will be published digitally and physically by Eastasiasoft Limited in close partnership with developer Rainbite. Physical Limited Editions will include the game, manual, soundtrack CD and numbered certificate in a collector’s box. Preorders open with online retail partner Playasia at 11:00 pm Hong Kong time (11:00 am EDT / 4:00 pm UK) on Thursday, July 15th. Only 2000 Limited Editions will be available for each platform, while standard PlayStation®5 and Nintendo Switch copies will be offered as an open preorder.
