At the Game Developer Conference, the publisher 11-bit studios gave an official announcement of a mobile version release of Moonlighter. The mobile port of this title is, however, a bit different from other normal ports. The developer – Digital Sun - will not follow the traditional method of adding a virtual joystick and buttons to copy the physical controller. As an alternative, Digital Sun will have specific changes in the controls of the mobile version so that players can easily play it on touchscreens.

Moonlighter received "generally favorable"  reviews according to review aggregator Metacritic.

In terms of the gameplay, Moonlighter is an action role-playing game that, as its description on Steam said, has “rogue-lite elements that demonstrates two sides of the coin – revealing everyday routines of Will, an adventurous shopkeeper that secretly dreams of becoming a hero,” . Here is a trailer of the game for the Nintendo Switch version.

The developer announced in the Game Developer Conference that a mobile port will include the main game and downloadable content with some changes in control and combat. For combat, game players can use auto attacks and move by swiping. Your character is a shopkeeper in Rynoka village and you will have to decide the pricing to make sure your customers are willing to buy, yet still make money from that. You can also meet with other villagers to get to know them and establish new businesses. Be prepared to fight back your enemies by mastering your weapons, timing correctly and positioning carefully.

Though no specific details on the mobile port were released yet, we hope to know more about that when it is closer to the launching date.
