The PlayStation anti-RPG Moon finally makes its first appearance in the west today with its English release on Switch. See what the title has to offer with the footage below.

Moon fans can purchase the game for Switch via the eShop.

The anti-RPG Moon initially released for the original PlayStation back in 1997, but never saw a western release. Onion Games then brought the title to Switch in Japan last year, and it’s now finally getting a proper English release.

Onion Games confirmed today that it will offer Moon for Switch in the west on August 27. It will be sold digitally via the eShop.

Here’s an overview of Moon, along with a trailer:

The PlayStation RPG Moon came out in Japan back in 1997. Unfortunately, it was never released in English. Onion Games recently brought the game to Switch in Japan, and thanks to the company’s efforts, fans in the west will finally be able to give the title a try. The wait will just be a little longer than expected.

Onion Games provided a status update in a blog post, stating that the process of translating and implementing everything is a “very delicate process”. With only a small team working on the English version, it’s estimated that the project is only 40 percent complete.

Renegade Kid’s Moon Chronicles was inspired by Metroid, studio co-founder Jools Watsham has said.

Watsham, speaking with Siliconera, pointed out that he looked to Super Metroid for the flow and level design. Metroid Prime: Hunters also helped inspire Moon’s control scheme.

Watsham’s comments in full:

Thanks to Salvador R for the tip.

We knew it was coming, but Renegade Kid has officially regained the publishing rights to Moon.

Studio co-founder Jools Watsham wrote on Twitter just a few minutes ago:


Moon was one of the earliest titles produced by Renegade Kid. Mastiff published the game in North America, but the company’s agreement only lasted five years. Moon came out in 2009, so Renegade Kid now controls the IP’s rights.
