Renegade Kid unleashes the first of four episodes on May 15.
Moon Chronicles will be available exclusively via the 3DS eShop on May 15, developer Renegade Kid announced today.
Moon Chronicles is an updated version of the Nintendo DS first-person shooter Moon, complete with enhanced graphics running at 60 frames per second, full 3D, and Circle Pad Pro support. The game is going for an “atmospheric sci-fi” vibe to go along with a story-driven episodic structure, with the narrative focusing on investigation of a mysterious hatch on the surface of the moon.
Moon Chronicles’ initial release next week will be priced at $8.99 for the first of four planned Season 1 episodes, with the additional episodes available at a later date as $1.99 DLC.
This first episode is said to feature around four hours of gameplay and comes with a Bonus Mission called Tsukigami’s VR Training, which “helps you perfect your skills, while providing some intense first-person shooter action.” The upcoming DLC episodes are expected to present about 2 hours of gameplay.
While Season 1 is essentially a remake of Moon for DS, next year’s planned release of Season 2 is expected to feature all-new gameplay and story content.
