Mon-Yu review

System: Switch
Release date: September 21, 2023
Developer: Experience
Publisher: Aksys Games

If you’re a fan of anime or light novels, you’re probably familiar with the interesting trend of giving a series an overly long and descriptive sentence for a title. Mon Yu: Defeat Monsters and Gain Strong Weapons and Armor. You May Be Defeated, but Don’t Give Up, Become Stronger. I Believe There Will Be a Day When the Heroes Defeat the Devil King (hereafter referred to simply as just Mon-Yu for obvious reasons) is the latest in a long line of DRPGs from Experience, and has clearly been inspired by this trend in some ways, with its colorful chibi character art style suggesting a light-hearted, easygoing adventure to rid the world of evil. However, beneath this seemingly cheerful aesthetic lies a core of steel that cuts a little too sharply to be appealing.

Mon-Yu release date

Aksys Games today provided a final release date for Mon-Yu: Defeat Monsters And Gain Strong Weapons And Armor in the west. Players will be able to pick it up for Switch on September 21, 2023.

Aksys Games confirmed plans for localization back in February 2022, following the Japanese launch in July 2021. It most recently had a Fall 2023 release window in North America and Europe.
