The first season of Moon Chronicles will be a remade version of the original Moon. Renegade Kid announced the episodic remake of its 2009 Nintendo DS-game a week after its five year anniversary which coincided with the publishing rights of the game reverting back to the developer who will now self-publish Moon Chronicles on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. Moon Chronicles is set for release in Spring 2014.
Depending on the success of the first season, Renegade Kid hopes to release a second season with brand new content taking place after the original game in 2015.
Moon Chronicles runs at 60 frames-per-second in both stereoscopic 3D and 2D-modes while it has also received upgraded geometry and other graphical details. The game will also take advantage of the Circle Pad Pro(XL) for dual-stick controls. A southpaw control scheme is being looked into as well but is not confirmed.
Season one will be distributed in the form of four episodes:
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).
