Digital Sun has released a free downloadable update for its beautiful dungeon crawler, Moonlighter. It includes a grand total of nine new companions to aid your adventures and a host of new minibosses, so as not to make its rogue-lite action too easy.
There are a load of minor additions to the base game, too. Here's a more comprehensive list of features and changes from the horse's mouth:
Zenon’s Campfire — From now on, when you visit the dungeons at night, Zenon will be there, sitting by his campfire, ready to tell you some forgotten stories of Rynoka and Moonlighter’s world. Those tales will be unlocked with the game’s progression.
Tomo Stories — We've modified and added more lines for Tomo. They should explain her relationship with Will better, shedding some light on their mutual past.
Banker Information — We have introduced a lot of special warnings and UI changes to avoid the Banker "stealing" your money. A lot of you forgot to revisit that mustachioed capitalist and were losing the investment.
Sorting Items — We've added a sorting mechanic inside the inventory.
Get the Broom! — We’ve added the possibility to get the Broom™ from Le Retailer (if you’ve managed to lose it somehow!). The Broom™ is important for getting some achievements - so we hope you like this little feature!
Prices Update — We’ve added a new system in the Shop to better inform whenever an item’s price gets updated.
+ Minor changes and Fixes
We enjoyed the game a lot, despite its 'grindy' mechanics, saying in our review that "if you want to play a top-down Legend of Zelda game as a rogue-lite while also taking shifts as a shopkeeper then, hey, Moonlighter is about to scratch a distinctive itch for you. It hits a sweet spot somewhere between satisfying swordplay and nitty-gritty economic sim."
Did Moonlighter strike a chord with you? Does this free update address any issues you had with it originally? Discuss in the usual boxes below.
I can definitely see where a lot of people would be put off by the game, but it quickly became one of my favorite indie titles on my Switch. Super happy I got a physical version of it too.
Watch some gameplay of it and see if it's your cup of tea cause it was definitely mine. I wouldn't impulse buy it though.
So there are several Nindie news that keep themselves away from the Direct.
This Direct might be huger than I thought.
How come it is more expensive on Switch? The normal price is £16 on PS4 and Steam.
Edit: Nevermind, got my answer. The game has a physical release and the eshop matches the physical price. Screw that price difference. I'll get it on PS4 or PC if I decide to buy it.
@Rhaoulos that's how it goes for most games, unfortunately.
Got my eye on this one. Waiting for a sale...
@senorwoohoo I edited my comment. It is only the case for games with physical releases. Nintendo doesn't want people to go digital only because of the price. So you roughly pay the extra 10€/£8 cost of the cartridge without getting the cartridge. I don't mind on a Switch exclusive, but on a £16 indie game, this is just a big joke (or Nintendo giving players the finger)
So these are fairly welcome QOL changes or is there prob more needed?
The game is currently £13 on the Polish eShop.
@Leuke On sale in the U.S. (it's $18.74)

I completed this game a couple of weeks ago and had trouble putting it down while playing. I bought it when it went on sale to try it out and it quickly became one of my absolute favorite switch games. I can not recommend this game enough to those on the fence.
I will say though I loved it I won’t be going back for this DLC most likely. Just too much to play now and I’m happy with the memory I have of this one as is
@senorwoohoo Right you are, good catch!
I'm keen to get this, but the price (around $30 AUD) kept putting me off. Will definitely get it when it's on sale.
It was a buggy mess when it first came out but I loved it anyway. They just need to add more 'game' now.
I've been thinking about grabbing this just saw someone mention it's on sale in the US might have to grab it.
