Our top pick of the week?

Moonlighter
29/05/18

We’ve all visited the item shop in our favourite RPG and left thinking “Why does he have some of these items?” Well Moonlighter is here to answer those questions!

Take this fun idea and give it a crisp but retro art style and you’ve got a game with a lot of character and a bunch of charm. Hopefully the shopkeep didn’t have to go dungeon spelunking for a copy when we go to pick this up at our local store.

What new titles are you most excited for this week? Be sure to let us know!
