A release greater than 20 years in the making

Last 12 months, followers of quirky RPGs and quirkier Japanese builders got a fantastic shock when it was introduced Moon: Remix RPG Adventure could be ported to the Switch. The recreation, described as an anti-RPG the place you understand the hero of the quest ain’t precisely heroic, initially launched for the PlayStation in Japan as one in every of three titles developed by short-lived studio Love-de-Lic.

English fan translations have began and stalled in the previous twenty years, which is why it was such nice information that Onion Games, a studio run by one in every of the writers and designers of Moon: Remix RPG Adventure, mentioned it was not solely bringing the recreation to Switch, but in addition releasing it for the first time abroad. There have been some delays as the translation took longer than anticipated, however Onion Games introduced at present the recreation, now referred to as Moon, will hit the Nintendo eShop worldwide next month.

Moon incorporates a younger boy who’s sucked right into a traditional online game referred to as “Moon World,” the place he follows round the hero of the journey and witnesses the devastation they go away once they transfer onto the next quest. Rather than combating monsters to realize XP, the boy grows with the energy of “Love” he unlocks from the souls of fallen monsters. That is simply the sort of feel-good recreation I might use proper now.

Moon will release worldwide on August 27.
