Moon releases for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on December 16

Onion Games has announced that Moon will release for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on December 16. Moon has also been announced for PC via Steam, and a release date for that version is said to be coming soon.

Sometimes referred to as Moon: Remix RPG Adventure, this game is known for defying and unwrapping common RPG genre tropes. Publisher Onion Games calls Moon an anti-RPG, and the game was a large source of inspiration for Undertale. It originally released on the original PlayStation in 1997 in Japan and had never received an official English release prior to 2020, when it was re-released for Nintendo Switch in August.

In 1997, the now legendary anti-RPG “moon” launched in Japan. Now, under the watchful eye of its original creators, it's finally in English!

Have you ever felt it odd that the heroes of RPGs go around opening villagers' closets and stealing from them? Or that they travel the world indiscriminately killing all monsters they meet? This game looks at the RPGs we all know and love from a new perspective.

Story

One moon-lit night, a young boy is sucked into the depths of his television set.
He falls into a place called 'Moon World', and thus begins a search for love in order to recover the lost moonlight.

Here, the mighty hero of Moon World murders innocent animals for experience,
but the boy's growth comes from saving the souls of the animals and gathering the love in the world.

Yes, in this game, you level up by loving, not fighting.

The inhabitants of this world are all unique. Observe their daily lives and learn where they hide their secret love.

"Now, please, open the door!"

An RPG without combat!
Gather love to level up!
Characters with their own lives and routines!
Save the spirits of the murdered monsters: soul catch!
Choose your own music with the Moon Disc system!
