Moonlighter Newest Update Adds New Game+ and comes on Switch Nov 5th!
First things first, Digital Sun Games/11 bit Studios have announced that Moonlighter has a release date of November 5th, 2018. You can preorder on the Nintendo Switch eShop for $24.99, or purchase the physical version from the store of your choice.
They have also released the newest update to Moonlighter, entitled “Adventure Update”. Update 1.8 adds several new features to the game including New Game+. Below are the all the new features that were included in the October 11th Steam Update. I reached out to them to see when this update will be available on the Switch.
NEW GAME +: Play the full Moonlighter adventure again, now with more challenging enemies and bosses! However, we don’t want you to feel exposed. Use the brand new Pirate Weapons and the Amulets to your advantage!
PIRATE WEAPONS: A new full set of weapons that are crafted with dimensional pirates knowledge. Those weapons could be enchanted with elemental effects (Confusion, Poison, Fire or Electricity) to alter their power.
AMULETS: Mysterious Rings found in the dungeons will offer new abilities for the players. Be careful how you use them, though, because most of them will have some drawbacks as well!
Note: Both the Pirate Weapons and Amulets are exclusive to the NG+ Mode!
GAME SLOTS: A lot of you have requested this feature – and here it is! Now you’ll be able to have more than one game slot in the game.
They also added a Quick-Selling Mirror. This allows you to select the mirror and quickly select the elements you want to sell.
The update also includes general fixes and fixes for dungeons. Below are from the patch notes.
