Onion Games has announced that they’ll be bringing 1997 anti-RPG, MOON, to the Nintendo Switch later this summer. The game will release worldwide on August 27th. They state that the game originally launched in Japan and is now being revived by a team of the original creators. Check out the trailer down below and read a little bit about the game.
[What’s an Anti-RPG?]
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.
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”! “Now, please, open the door!”
Conquer a game with a clear conscience in this anti-RPG! Save the monsters’ souls!
Follow the real-time daily lives of Moon World’s NPCs, day and night, all week long!
Collect dozens of “MoonDiscs” containing original songs, and choose your own favorite background music!
