“We’re big fans of TV shows like Lost. We love shows that really cement the feeling where you watch an episode, you have a cliffhanger, and you absolutely need to watch the next one.”

“That’s our plan for season two and beyond, [for us] to approach it in a similar way. ‘What’s the whole point of the season? Where do we start and where do we end up?’” – Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham

– Rebuilt from the ground up to take advantage of the 3D screen
– 60 frames-per-second (with/without 3D)

Renegade Kid’s upcoming first-person shooter announcement might just be “Moon Chronicles”. Last Thursday, the studio filed a trademark for the name in the US and it was entered in the Trademark Reporting and Monitoring System (TRAM) yesterday.

Interestingly enough, Renegade Kid regained the publishing rights to Moon today. That’s probably not a coincidence!

Now the question is whether Moon Chronicles is an updated version of the DS original or a true follow up…
