Digital Sun and 11 Bit Studios have announced that Moonlighter, the indie RPG about a shopkeeper turned adventurer, will launch on May 29 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. A Nintendo Switch version of the game is planned, but it doesn’t appear that it’ll be launching alongside the other versions. In addition to the release date, 11 Bit Studios has also announced that the game will be getting a physical release, with a standard and limited Signature Edition. The Signature Edition comes with a double-sided Medallion from the game, glossy A3 artwork poster, and a squishy Jelly-Monster
Moonlighter tells the story of Will, a young man in a line of shopkeepers, who dreams of being something more. The game has Will working his shop by day, and adventuring through caverns and other dangerous areas by night. Here’s quick description of the game’s story, and you can see a new trailer down below.
“Moonlighter’s story dates back to a time many years ago when a set of magical Gates was discovered during an archaeological excavation. People quickly realized that these ancient passages lead to different realms and dimensions — providing brave and reckless adventurers with treasures beyond measure. Rynoka, a small commercial village, was founded near the excavation site providing refuge and a place for adventurers to sell their hard-earned riches. Moonlighter is an Action-RPG with rogue-lite elements following the everyday routines of the aforementioned Will, Rynoka’s ambitious shopkeeper that dreams of becoming a hero.”
Moonlighter will be available on May 29 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and will retail for $19.99.
