Moonlighter hitting Switch in Japan on March 28th, 2019

Moonlighter was originally supposed to hit the Switch in Japan during Winter, but that's no longer the case. Teyon Japan has confirmed that the title is pushed back to March 28th, 2019. Hopefully this new release date sticks. We'll bring you details on pricing when they become available.

Moonlighter’s ‘Friends and Foes’ Update Adds New Companions Just in Time for Valentine’s Day

Warsaw, Poland, February 13, 2019 - A very wise person once said that a true friendship is born the moment one person says to another, “Let’s slay some monsters together!”. We certainly wouldn’t want to disagree with ‘a very wise person’ so as part of the new Moonlighter ‘Friends & Foes’ update, launching today for free on all platforms, Digital Sun and 11 bit studios are introducing nine new companions to the game.

Now, even though the freshly introduced nine familiars can’t really talk, they’re more than happy to aid you during your most dangerous adventures to the dungeons outside the merchant village of Rynoka. We wouldn’t want to make Moonlighter too easy, of course, so to counterbalance your buddy upgrades the developers have also added brand-new, ferocious minibosses (so hopefully you and your new companions are getting on well with each other. You’re gonna need all the help you can get!).

NEW FEATURES AND MAJOR CHANGES

Companions — Nine new familiars have arrived to aid you in your dungeon crawling! Kill a particular enemy 10 times and a very special egg will appear! Give the egg three days to hatch and your fresh-faced familiar will be ready for action! Each sporting different mechanics, they can damage enemies, restore your life, get items for you, act as an additional chest, and more!
Minibosses — Eight new minibosses are here to challenge you! They will appear as guardians of the dungeons, securing gateways leading to deeper rooms. They will emerge at the end of the first and second floor in each dungeon.
Zenon’s Campfire — From now on, when you visit the dungeons at night, Zenon will be there, sitting by his campfire, ready to tell you some forgotten stories of Rynoka and Moonlighter’s world. Those tales will be unlocked with the game’s progression.
Tomo Stories — We've modified and added more lines for Tomo. They should explain her relationship with Will better, shedding some light on their mutual past.
Banker Information — We have introduced a lot of special warnings and UI changes to avoid the Banker "stealing" your money. A lot of you forgot to revisit that mustachioed capitalist and were losing the investment.
Sorting Items — We've added a sorting mechanic inside the inventory.
Get the Broom! — We’ve added the possibility to get the Broom™ from Le Retailer (if you’ve managed to lose it somehow!). The Broom™ is important for getting some achievements - so we hope you like this little feature!
Prices Update — We’ve added a new system in the Shop to better inform whenever an item’s price gets updated.

We've heard our beloved community is asking about new #Moonlighter content. Well, something IS coming... Can't tell you more right now but it seems like our friend and mentor Zenon wants to share his stories with you...
