Moon Chronicles Lands on the 3DS eShop in North America on 15th May

First episode to cost $8.99

Moon Chronicles, the enhanced and episodic remake of Renegade Kid's DS retail title Moon, will make its 3DS eShop début on 15th May in North America.

As previously revealed this will be released in four parts, with the opening section costing the most and including a sizeable chunk of the storyline. It is a "season", with the following structure:

  • Episode 1: $8.99 (contains chapters 1 - 4 + 6 VR Missions: ~4 hours of gameplay).
  • Episode 2 (as DLC): $1.99 (contains chapters 5 - 8: ~2 hours of gameplay).
  • Episode 3 (as DLC): $1.99 (contains chapters 9 - 12: ~2 hours of gameplay).
  • Episode 4 (as DLC): $1.99 (contains chapters 13 - 16: ~2 hours of gameplay).

This first season, as highlighted above, is a remake of Moon, while a planned second season will feature a new story. As for a release of this first season in Europe, the studio's co-founder Jools Watsham has told us the following.

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.

The latest trailer is below — are you interested in picking up the first episode next week, North American gamers?
