Ashen, the action RPG from New Zealand studio, A44, is headed to Nintendo Switch. You'll be able to play it on the go from December this year.

Originally launching on Xbox One and the Epic Games Store in December 2018, Ashen went on to receive praise from critics, achieving a Metacritic score of 82 on PC. The game is described as "a co-op adventure game about a wanderer in search of a place to call home".

You'll find the now-usual RPG tropes tucked away here, with a vast, handcrafted open-world to explore and combat against the various monsters standing in your path. The game also has a focus on forging relationships; players may cross paths with one another and choose to guide those they trust into their camp.

There's no specific release date in place just yet, so keep an eye out for that as we get closer to December.
