Finally, it can be told! As you might have seen in Japan’s latest Nintendo Direct, the cult-hit “remix RPG adventure” moon is coming to the Nintendo Switch! The game is available for pre-order in Japan right now, and, very soon, the game will be available to the rest of the world, finally in English for the very first time!
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!
We’ll have much more to say about moon in the near future — we hope you’re as excited as we are to bring the game to the rest of the world for the first time in English, and help find many new moon fans!
