Moon Chronicles Gets North American Release Date
Moon Chronicles, an enhanced remake of Renegade Kid’s DS first-person shooter game Moon, is set to hit the 3DS eshop on 15 May in North America. The game will be released in episodic installments, with episode 1 being the largest and most expensive of the four part “season”, reportedly clocking in at 4 hours long and priced at $8.99.
The following episodes will be made available as DLC for $1.99 each and will have about 2 hours worth of gameplay per episode.
A full summary of Episode 1’s content has also been released by Renegade Kid:
Episode 1: One Small Step
Major Kane’s investigation quickly spirals into a desperate search for lost team members and the discovery of troubling evidence.
Bonus Mission: Tsukigami’s VR Training
Created by Captain Tsukigami to emulate the behaviors of alien hostiles; this mission helps you perfect your skills, while providing some intense first-person shooter action.
A second season is also planned for 2015 with ‘all-new story content’. Meanwhile Jools Watsham, co-founder of Renegade Kid, has stated that the first season will not be released in Europe until all episodes are finished.
Now that Episode 1 is approved, we’re working hard to finish the remaining episodes (2, 3, and 4) in one focused effort. Our plan is to submit the game to NOE when we have all episodes completed, so a confident release plan for Europe can be scheduled.
