'Moonlighter' (ALL) Gets Switch/PS4 Retail Editions

by Rainier on March 2, 2018 @ 12:19 a.m. PST

Moonlighter is a 2D action RPG about Will, a shopkeeper who has dreams of being a hero. The title features rogue-lite and shopkeeping elements.

It all began with an archaeological excavation and the discovery of the Gates. People quickly realized that the ancient passages led to new realms and dimensions, and the small village of Rynoka was founded, providing brave and reckless adventurers with treasures beyond measure.

Moonlighter is the story of Will, a dexterous shopkeeper by day who secretly dreams of becoming a hero while stocking his shelves. By night, Will ventures into the dungeons behind the Gates to vanquish the monsters within and fill his pack with loot.

One part rogue-lite and one part shop management, Moonlighter from 11 bit studios and Digital Sun sends you into the dungeons in search of loot to fill your shelves. But, the shop won’t run itself. Between runs, you’ll need to set prices, craft new wares, hire assistants, and keep sticky-fingered shoplifters at bay.

Merge Games has agreed a partnership with developer and a publisher 11 bit studios to bring Moonlighter on PS4 and Nintendo Switch to retail.

Merge Games’ Managing Director, Luke Keighran, remarked, “Moonlighter is going to be huge. The RPG and rogue-like elements framed around the juxtaposition of central character’s lifestyle make for perfect console game. We are excited to have partnered with 11 bit studios, working with them is a delight.”

11 bit studios’ Business Development Manager, Piotr Bajraszewski, added, “Fans are crying out for physical editions of these games. Merge Games was the ideal partner to help us get this done! We're super excited for people to have the option to buy them a retail box... we’re looking forward to including them in our personal collections too!”

Moonlighter is coming to PC, PS4, Xbox One, And Nintendo Switch in May 2018.
