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!
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!

Never heard of moon and don’t know why it’s inspired so many of your favorite adventure games? Read on to learn more…
A long, long time ago, under the silvery light of a full moon, the legendary “anti-RPG” moon was released in Japan.
Now, 22 years later, revived by a team of its original creators, find out why it became an instant cult-classic, as moon comes to the Nintendo Switch — in English, for the first time ever!
[WHAT IS MOON?]
Have you ever played an RPG and wondered…
“Why is it OK that this hero is breaking into houses and stealing items from people’s drawers??”
“Why is it OK that this hero is killing thousands of innocent monsters??”
Moon is a game about turning those tropes upside down, and seeing what really happens behind the scenes of your favorite RPG videogames.
[THE STORY OF MOON]
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’ll 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”!
“Now… use your own power to open the door…”
• Conquer a game with a clear conscience in this Zero-Battle RPG! Free monsters’ souls!
• Collect dozens of “MoonDiscs” containing original songs, and choose your own favorite background music!
• Follow the real-time daily lives of Moon World’s NPCs, day and night, all week long!
It’s getting so hot out… this is the perfect time to stay inside all day and play videogames!
