Renegade Kid Announces Moon Chronicles for 3DS

Moon Chronicles is the latest 3DS project from Renegade Kid, the developer behind the previous Mutant Mudd title.

Moon Chronicles is a remake of Moon, the first-person shooter that was released for the DS back in 2009, where players will follow Major Kane, as he sets out on a quest to investigate a hatch of unknown origin on Earth’s moon.

The game will follow an episodic model, where Season 1 will include most of what took place in the original Moon title. Renegade Kid though hopes to release a second season next year which will contain new content that takes place after the original game.

Season 1

  • Episode 1: $8.99 (contains chapters 1 – 4 + 6 VR Missions: ~4 hours of gameplay).
  • Episode 2 (as DLC): $1.99 (contains chapters 5 – 8: ~2 hours of gameplay).
  • Episode 3 (as DLC): $1.99 (contains chapters 9 – 12: ~2 hours of gameplay).
  • Episode 4 (as DLC): $1.99 (contains chapters 13 – 16: ~2 hours of gameplay).

“We’re big fans of TV shows like Lost,“ Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham told IGN. “We love shows that really cement the feeling where you watch an episode, you have a cliffhanger, and you absolutely need to watch the next one.”

Moon Chronicles will also take advantage of the 3DS’ 3D feature and run at 60 frames per second.
