I’m not going to lie, I loved Renegade Kid’s DS outings. The Dementium games were refreshing and terrifying handheld experiences and Moon demonstrated that Samus isn’t the only character capable of starring in a captivating first-person adventure. Both properties demonstrate the kind of quality on a Nintendo console uncommon in third-party developers, so I’m all for seeing more. With Moon being one of the few games out there to successfully replicate the feel of a Metroid Prime game, the idea that there might be more in the future is certainly exciting.
Renegade Kid had a five-year contract with publisher Mastiff for Moon, those five years are up in 2014. Jools Watsham, the co-founder of Renegade Kid, has hinted that with the property being back in the hands of its creators, that there might just be more in the future. In a conversation with Polygon, Watsham stated, “We… are very fond of Moon, and have always wanted to continue the story of Major Kane…. We purposely left it open-ended at the end of the first game for this reason…. [W]e absolutely intend to support Moon with future development efforts. We’ll have more news on our plans soon.”
