Moonlighter was a great game when I last played it on the PS4 earlier this year and it’s no doubt a great game on the Nintendo Switch now that it’s available. Released today, Moonlighter is available as a retail edition, digital edition, and a special Signature Edition with extra loot.
Moonlighter is the charming story of Will — shopkeeper by day in the village of Rynoka, selling classic RPG stuff like potions, wands, swords, and armor. Will, whose secret nightlife is one of a warrior who hunts monsters in dungeons to get said RPG stuff for his shop.
Conduct business during the day at Rynoka Village, and at night traverse the Gates to different realms and dimensions as you guide Will through this action-RPG. You are going to be:
- Shopkeeping! Put items on sale, set their price carefully, manage gold reserves, recruit assistants and upgrade the shop. Be careful though— some shady individuals may want to steal your precious wares!
- Fighting with style! Masterful control of your weapons, critical timing, careful positioning, and an understanding of your enemies and environment are crucial to your survival. How you battle your enemies is up to you.
- Meeting villagers! Get to know your neighbors as you restore the prosperity of this small commercial hamlet. Help establish new businesses and watch them grow in the idyllic community of Rynoka.
- Crafting, enchanting, and looting! Interact with the villagers to craft new armor and weapons, and enchant existing equipment. Also, collect valuable items from exotic civilizations!
