Onion Games will release 1997’s PlayStation “anti-RPG,” Moon (Moon: Remix RPG Adventure) for the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, according to listings found on the PlayStation Store (thanks, Gematsu). A release date has yet to be revealed.
Moon‘s original PlayStation version never made it out of Japan, but its 2019 Nintendo Switch version made its way to the West a year later. Alongside the PS5 and PS4, the upcoming release will target PC (Steam) as well.
Moon is set within a fictional RPG and mocks the genre’s tropes. An official overview is as follows:
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.
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!’
