Moon showcases some of the best 3D visuals yet seen on the DS

Renegade Kid may be working on new projects but the developer's highly rated DS FPS Moon is only now getting a European release, thanks to publisher Rising Star Games. American DS owners had the chance to enjoy this technically-advanced game back in January.

Shamefully we've yet to review the game here on Nintendo Life but we intend to remedy this unfortunate situation as soon as possible. In the meantime, here's the official press release:

2058, Lunar Outpost Alpha. Major Edward Kane, Chief of Military Operations for the Extra-Terrestrial Encounter Organisation, has been called in to investigate reports of strange energy readings and missing personnel.

Aid Major Kane and his men as you head out to uncover the mysteries surrounding the outpost and face off against and unseen enemy.


  • Renegade Kid’s patented formula of a sick and twisted FPS adventure features a cinematic storyline and white knuckle shooting action.
  • Built on the Renegade Engine 2.0, Moon delivers rich environments and robust FPS gameplay which screams at a blistering 60 frames a second.
  • Collect alien artefacts and challenge insane difficulty levels to unlock premium hidden content – only the hardcore need apply.
  • Annihilate alien hostiles as you rip up the lunar landscape in your turret-equipped buggy or pilot the Remote Search Droid to delve into the Moon’s darkest corners.
  • Deliver Major Kane’s style of intergalactic diplomacy as you wield powerful alien technology like the LeptonSpread – a particle shotgun that can tear your enemies a new black hole.

Developed by Renegade Kid, creators of the award-winning Dementium: The Ward, Moon uses the Renegade 2.0 engine to push the Nintendo DS to its limits with an epic story, atmospheric environments and white-knuckle sci-fi FPS action.

The game hits European stores on the 3rd July and is priced at £29.99.
