‘Moonlighter’ Comes to the Switch in November

Moonlighter Focuses on a Wannabe Hero

Moonlighter, a 2D action-RPG, is launching on the Nintendo Switch this November, according to an official Tuesday announcement. It’ll be available both in retail stores and in Nintendo’s eShop.


Moonlighter is about a shopkeeper named Will who secretly wishes to be a brave hero and likes to go on adventures. Its gameplay involves managing a shop, upgrading your weapons & equipment, and exploring dungeons for valuable loot.

We reviewed the PS4 version of the game earlier this year and gave it an 83 out of 100 score.

“Moonlighter is a very solid product overall, but there are parts that feel like they could have done a lot more with,” our reviewer wrote. “It’s got great graphics, a simple, yet rewarding premise, and combat is satisfying despite its shortcomings.”

Our reviewer also wrote that the game felt like “missed potential” but was “still absolutely worth looking into and is sure to provide plenty for you to do.”
