“Anti-RPG” PlayStation Title Moon Arrives On Switch eShop This August

Switch

Tokyo-based developer Onion Games – which previously worked on games like Little King’s Story, Chibi-Robo!, Rez and even Super Mario RPG – has announced its cult-classic “anti-RPG” Moon will be released on the Switch eShop in the west next month on 27th August for $18.99 / €15.99 / £14.49.

This is the first time the game has been released in English since its original debut on the PlayStation in 1997. The game was already released on the Switch in Japan last year and went straight to the top spot on the eShop downloads charts. It ended up being the seventh best-selling game overall in 2019 on the Japanese eShop. Here’s the full rundown:

One night, under the silvery light of a full moon, a young boy is suddenly sucked through his TV and into a videogame — a classic JRPG called “Moon World”. Following closely behind the game’s brave hero, the boy begins his own journey to recover the world’s missing moonlight by collecting “Love”.

As Moon World’s hero loots and levels up by cutting down monsters for experience points — you know, as heroes do — the boy releases their souls and collects their “Love”. Moon is not a game where you fight to level up — your own progress comes by gathering lost “Love”!

As you explore the world, you’ll meet a crazy cast of weird and wonderful NPCs. Observe their strange habits and daily routines by visiting them at different times and days of the week, and learn their secrets to uncover even more lost “Love”!

Moon is a game about turning those [RPG] tropes upside down, and seeing what really happens behind the scenes of your favorite RPG videogames.
