    Self-described as an "anti-RPG", MOON is a game that was first released on the original PlayStation in 1997. However, the game was never officially localized until now, that is. Indeed, a team of its original creators worked on bringing an official English version for the first time ever, and exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. Toby Fox, Undertale's creator, even cited MOON as an inspiration for his acclaimed game.

    What's this about "anti-RPG" you ask? Well, it's better to check it from the new trailer and official description:


    MOON will be available on the Nintendo Switch this August 27th.

    I loved MOON on DS and the "3DS-enhanced" DS port.

    Wow a straight-up port of PS1 game is not something I expected to see in 2020. The concept is pretty much Undertale to a T, so I gotta wonder how much inspiration Toby Fox took from this.

    Yeah, whenever my friend would go on and on about how unique Undertale was I told him he should play Moon and Knights in the Nightmare. Now he can!

    So, the "anti-RPG" is still a RPG...?

    Finally, a game for my tastes. I'm anti-RPG too.

    Unfortunately, if it still has the gameplay of one...

    This looks weird for sure...

    Hope this derives on a PSX/PSOne fan translation project.

    There was an attempt to translate this at one point with the script being around 95% or 100% if i recalled but i guess no one knew how to hack and insert texts for PlayStation 1 games back then so no one bothered finishing it.

    Thank for letting us know about it. This gives more hope on a better translation process. Anyone know of PSX/PSOne games hacking tools?
    Long ago, I've made some RIPs (reduced size working games without videos/streaming audio), but that was it, would like to try somthing.
    Thanks in advance.
