Moon: Remix RPG Adventure, a Legendary Game Which Inspired Undertale, is Coming to Switch in English (UPDATED)
Moon: Remix RPG Adventure is one of the main Japanese inspirations behind Toby Fox's Undertale along with Touhou.
Nintendo and Onion Games revealed on the Japanese version of the September 4 Nintendo Direct that Moon: Remix RPG Adventure is getting ported to Switch. The game will launch digitally in Japan on October 10, for 1833 Yen. Preorders and predownload are available now. The announcement trailer for the Switch port of Moon, narrated by the awesome Yuichi Nakamura, is included below.
Moon: Remix RPG Adventure is set in a game called Moon World. That world is currently in trouble because a typical JRPG hero is killing innocent animals to get EXP, stealing inside people’s houses, etc. Like any other JRPG hero. It’s up to the player to restore this broken world, by gathering the souls of the poor animals and grinding Love instead of Levels. The game also requires you to carefully observe its eccentric characters, check their schedule at day and night, to be able to find their hidden Love.
Moon: Remix RPG Adventure only released in Japan on PS1 in 1997. This Moon Switch port is handled by the game’s original staff, currently at Onion Games. Most notably Yoshiro Kimura and Kazuyuki Kurashima. Onion Games recently released a shooting game named Black Bird.
I’m not exaggerating when saying Moon is a legendary game. I myself have Japanese online friends who consider Moon as their favorite game ever. Along with Touhou, Moon is also one of the games which inspired Toby Fox when making Undertale. He talked about the game in an old Twitter thread back in 2017.
Update: Onion Games announced Moon will be coming on Switch in English worldwide “not too long” after its October 10 Japanese release.
It’s true! Onion Games is bringing the cult-classic “anti-RPG” MOON to the Nintendo Switch…
… in English for the very first time!
The game will be out in Japan on October 10th, and available in English worldwide… not too long afterward!
