Moonlighter, the adorable shopkeeping RPG, is coming to the Nintendo Switch.
A strange thing happened, when the Nintendo Switch launched. For a time, people were concerned there wouldn’t be enough games available. Then the indies arrived. Shovel Knight, Shantae, Overcooked, Severed, and the trio from Tomorrow Corporation; World of Goo, Human Resource Machine, and Little Inferno. All of a sudden the Switch was the system of choice, and indie developers were scrambling to get in on it.
The Switch has been a particular hit with RPG developers, with everything from the big budget indies of the Square Enix Collective (Octopath Traveller, I am Setsuna) to the scrappy underdogs (Golf Story, Undertale, Minit) have found an ideal home.
We lose hours to them, on our commute, on our lunch break, on the toilet. So it’s no surprise, then, to see Moonlighter – the indie RPG about multitasking productivity, combining shopkeeping with adventuring – coming to the Nintendo Switch. It’s not hard to imagine Will, the titular moonlighter, playing an RPG on his Switch in between shifts and adventures.
The Moonlighter Switch version launches in November 2018. We don’t have a precise release date, yet, but we’ll let you know as soon as we do.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
