I wonder if the trademark is for a port of the DS game, seems to be a pretty fast turnaround if it's a sequel.

I can't help but see Moon as a awesome Prime clone, as both are space FP adventure games, and Jools was from Iguana as were the folks at Retro.

This will hopefully scratch the Prime itch on 3DS, now let's hope someday we get a full-fledged Moon on Wii U. :P

Both Dementium games were better than Moon. Still, the jump in quality from De1 to De2 was so big I more than welcome a sequel to Moon.

Wasn't he teasing a reveal for the end of the month, which led people to speculate that it was for a Direct? Or, am I thinking of someone else?

He is, and it is likely that this is that announcement.

I'm guessing it's going to be an enhanced remake of the DS game, which could certainly use it.

Sounds more remake-like than sequel-like. Or expanded remake maybe? Chronicles meaning several stories? Start with moon because not a ton of people played it, then keep going after the point where the original game ended?

A 3DS game, for sure.

Didn't liked Moon on DS though (or any other FPS for it).

My copy of Moon has a stupid glitch that prevents me from going forward at one point in the game.

I love it though.

@GoldMetalSonic Hmm, not sure what this "Moon Chronicles' business is all about. I'll have to get back to you on that. :)

Moon wasn't that good as it is, just to be honest. Had a nice theme and was really smooth technically, but the game itself was lacking. Still, you can tell they had the best intentions, so with them being more successful as of late, it could bode well for a sequel to a promising game. I'm interested. If they can get it on the quality level of Mutant Mudds, I'd be hyped. That game was had a nice, measured, cohesive design that worked really well.

There was never a sequel. No one has any idea what chronicles means. Renegade Kid promised information of some kind at the end of January on one of their unannounced projects. It could be this one.

Moon really filled that Metroid niche for me on DS, especially since Prime Hunters was so average. It was about being isolated somewhere in space.

I hope they can recapture that magic with a new game, if this is indeed what it is.

since Nintendo aren't really paying any attention to Metroid themselves T_T

The recent HD re-release of Dementium 2 was handled by a different developer and publisher, but not sure what the implication of that is. Perhaps they don't have the exclusive rights?

Hope-so, low budget up-res DS games look horrible.

There are DS emulators, but none of them can increase the internal resolution. Something about the way that the DS handles 3D makes it difficult for emulators to implement higher resolution rendering.
