Moonlighter Goofs on Comparison Videos in “Super Official Platform Trailer”
The upcoming shopkeeping simulator and dungeon-crawling hybrid Moonlighter has a humorous new trailer, poking fun at comparison videos.
While we’re less than two weeks away from the release of Moonlighter on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, publisher 11 Bit Studios has released a new “Super Official Platform Trailer” showcasing how the game runs on each platform. Throughout the course of the trailer, text on the screen brags about the game’s “4K Resolution,” “Realistic Physics,” “Volumetric Smoke,” and other technical achievements.
Of course, because Moonlighter is a top-down, pixel art game, the trailer proves to be 11 Bit Studios just using industry buzzwords to have a good laugh with the rest of us. While the trailer is predominantly a gag, it does succeed in showing off some enticing new gameplay footage for the upcoming dungeon-crawler and shopkeeping simulator hybrid.
Moonlighter will be released on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on May 29th, 2018. A Nintendo Switch version of the game is also in the works, however, no further information is known about its release date.
