There’s been a lot of surprises over the last few years in the gaming world. IPs once thought dead have seen successful revivals, the revival of midrange games and developers and all kinds of experimentation being rewarded. One of the most surprising things, in my book, is the absolutely out of nowhere announcement of a Switch port of Moon: Remix RPG Adventure. And it’s finally getting to come westward.
The original game was released way back in 1997 for the original PlayStation. Described as an “anti-RPG,” the game follows a young boy who is sucked into a RPG video game (also titled Moon), and subverts many aspects of the genre, such as battling creatures through “love” over weapons.
The original title was planned to come outside Japan, but it never materialized. 22 years later, developer Onion Games confirmed the game would finally get its day outside Japan via an interview with Gematsu. The Japanese version of the game will come out October 10th with no date attached to the western version yet. Keep your eyes open, as it’s an interesting part of gaming history that’s finally coming outside its homeland.
