Moon Dancer headed to Europe and North America next week

Yesterday, Regista released a Software update for Moon Dancer (released back in July in Japan). This update fixes a few bugs, but also prepares for the upcoming European and North American release of the game.

Moon Dancer will launch on September 29th in Europe and North America, and it’s now available for digital pre-order on the Nintendo eShop. The game normally costs 18.99€ / $18.99 / £15.99, but if you buy it before October 21st, you will be able to pay only 10.99€ / £9.50 / $10.99… a rather hefty discount (-42%)! It requires only 132MB of free space.

Here’s the trailer for the game:

Here’s some details and some screenshots for Moon Dancer:

Moon Dancer is a vertically scrolling shmup featuring exhilarating lock-on lasers.

Exhilarating lock-on lasers

Operate the fighter “Moon Dancer” equipped with shots and lock-on lasers to defeat the enemy. This game requires you to quickly defeat the enemies that appear one after another. The feature of this game is the balance that prioritizes attacking the enemy rather than avoiding bullets.

Pop and cool art style

The Nintendo Switch™ version has enhanced graphics by Tenmaru.

Includes “Arcade Mode” and “Caravan Mode”

Arcade mode consists of 8 stages. You can choose from 3 levels of difficulty. If you break through all the stages, the mission will be completed. Caravan mode is a 3-minute limited challenge to get a high score. In all modes, Local ranking and online ranking are supported.


Two types of music are included: the original version by HIROKKEY and the chiptune arrangement version by Taku Shiiba. Music can be switched in the option menu.

Moon Dancer (Switch – eShop) comes out on September 29th in Europe and North America.
