Renegade Kid, developers of the successful Mutant Mudds, have announced the Spring release for Moon Chronicles exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS. A remake of their celebrated 2009 DS shooter, Moon Chronicles will expand upon the original game by taking the episodic model that’s all the rage these days.
Completely rebuilt from the ground up to take advantage of the 3DS’s power and CirclePad, Moon Chronicles will run at a crisp 60 frames per second. The first episode will cost $8.99 and include chapters 1-6 which amounts to about four hours of gameplay, while each subsequent episode will cost $1.99. Season Two is expected sometime in 2015 after the first one wraps up.
Renegade Kid made some of the DS’s best and scariest FPS experiences with Moon and the two Dementium releases and it’s great to see the studio going back to what it does best. Look for more coverage in the coming months.
