MOON Is Now Available Worldwide on Nintendo Switch!

Dear friends and lovely Onions everywhere: the wait is finally over! After 23 years, the legendary “anti-RPG” moon is now available worldwide, only on Nintendo Switch!

CLICK HERE TO BUY MOON ON NINTENDO SWITCH RIGHT NOW!

Since this is your first time entering Moon World, we have a special request… We very strongly recommend that before you play the game, you read the official manual! Read a manual… in 2020?… you might ask, and we say.. please!

Moon is a strange time-capsule from an ancient era (the “1990s”) (…before.. maybe… some of you were even born??), when very important information came from a booklet inside the jewel case you just purchased (imagine!). This booklet, in moon‘s case, holds some very important information that will make your time exploring Moon World much more enjoyable and happy.

Want to know how to save? Want to know why you are suddenly slumped over and shuffling slowly? Want to know why you suddenly just fainted and got a game over when you thought you were just walking around totally doing OK? It’s in the manual!

Many like you are also going on this journey for the first time, and we hope you’ll all gather to discover the secrets of moon together! We’ve launched the #moon_rpg hashtag on Twitter for people to share their screenshots, discoveries, excitement & fanart! Join in the conversation there!

Many friendly Onions have also gathered in the Onion Games Discord to talk about the game as well — come say hi to us!

All of us here at Onion Games want to say thank you for your patience and support as we have undertaken our own journey to bring this game to you, after so many years! Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your trip more enjoyable!

As Summer Approaches, Another Update On Moon

[UPDATE 27/08/20: moon is now available worldwide on the Nintendo Switch!]

Hello, everyone. So…… how is life?

These days, I’ve been hard at work every day, mostly just here at home in my room.

From time to time, I’ve been hearing little voices asking, in English, “are you OK?” Am I hallucinating from working too hard?

Between COVID-19 and everything else going on in the world right now, it’s taken us some time to make a proper announcement, but I wanted to reach out and give you an update on our current situation.

We have finally (finally!) reached the last stage of debugging the English version of moon.

The first draft of its translation was actually finished a while ago, but given that this is the first time ever that you’re all going to play it in English, we wanted to take even more time to polish the script.

Moon is full of so many subtleties in the characters, their strange personalities, and idiosyncratic ways of communicating. We wanted to do even more testing than usual to make sure all of that came through clearly, felt special, and guided you properly through its world.

Today, we’re starting to debug the latest build that includes all that extra polish. We just need… a little more time. The goal is really, actually in sight!

The next stop on this journey is getting final approval that our build is OK and ready to ship, and so the next time you hear from us about moon will be… then!

Talk to you again very soon,
Yoshiro Kimura
