Moonlighter launched earlier this year on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and now it’s finally coming to Switch. 11 bit Studios has announced that Moonlighter will release on Switch this November. A specific date has not yet been announced.
Moonlighter is an action-RPG that combines the dungeon-crawling of old-school Zelda games with running a merchant shop with all the loot you acquire. You play as Will, a shopkeeper with heroic tendencies as you explore the mysterious dungeons outside of town.
The game also uses a rogue-like system. It’s not game over if you die but you drop most of your hard-earned loot, and dungeons are randomly generated each time you go inside. For a price you can teleport back and forth between the dungeon and the town. Each dungeon has an end boss that unlocks the next harder dungeon.
At the shop you can set your own prices for each piece of loot you find. The ideal sell price is mostly trial and error, with some light economy management. Also in town Will can use materials and gold to upgrade his weapons and armor and purchase potions.
Moonlighter is developed by Digital Sun and published by 11 bit Studios. It’s available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and coming to Switch in November. It’s rated E10+ for Fantasy Violence.
All things must come to the Nintendo Switch, and Blizzard Entertainment’s seminal 2012 action-RPG Diablo 3 is no exception. Blizzard has officially announced the Diablo 3 Eternal Collection for Switch, coming later this year.
The Eternal Collection includes all previously released content updates, as well as the Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer DLC expansion packs. That’s seven character classes, a five-act campaign, and the endless and excellent Adventure Mode.
The Switch version features new “ultra-responsive” controls built specifically for the Switch. Also coming exclusively to Switch is The Legend of Zelda Ganondorf armor set, inspired from the villain from the Zelda series.
Like previous editions, the Eternal Collection will support both local and online cooperative multiplayer, including a shared screen and linked systems.
“The Eternal Collection is the definitive version of Diablo 3, and we’re thrilled to team up with Nintendo to unleash it for Nintendo Switch gamers around the world later this year,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment. “Bringing the world together through epic entertainment is core to our mission at Blizzard – we can’t wait to welcome a new generation of demon-slayers to Sanctuary.”
Diablo 3 originally launched on PC in 2012. It underwent some major revisions and updates in the following years, most notably with the Reaper of Souls expansion, Adventure Mode update, and PlayStation 4 and Xbox One console ports in 2014. The most recent addition was the Rise of the Necromancer pack last summer, which added the Necromancer class.
Diablo 3 Eternal Collection will be shown at Gamescom and PAX West, and will release later this year. It’s rated M for Mature.
Available On: PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Nothing irritates me more than seeing the smiling faces on happy customers. It means I priced an item too low and they scored a sweet deal. A begrudgingly crestfallen customer, one who’ll pay just enough to purchase my stock, is exactly the kind of oil that keeps my dungeon crawling machine going.
Moonlighter provides an interesting premise. What if, after exploring a Zelda-like dungeon, our loot-filled hero had to sell all that loot in their own shop, without knowing how much it’s worth?
Moonlighter offers a unique and fun combination of both action-RPG and merchant sim, but doesn’t provide nearly as much depth as games that specialize in either one.
