Rainbow Moon Out Today For PS Vita

Rainbow Moon Vita, 05

It’s an exciting day for SideQuest Studios and the eastasiasoft team! Our indie role-playing game, Rainbow Moon, is out today for PS Vita. And as promised in my last post, we have a lot of great offers for PS3 Rainbow Moon players and PlayStation Plus subscribers.

Firstly, for new players, we have a trial version of Rainbow Moon that gives you access to the full game for 90 minutes. The trial can be replayed as often as you like and any progress that you make is carried over when you purchase the full game for $14.99. The latest version of Rainbow Moon adds more than 30 bug fixes, improvements, and new features to the original, including cross save support. Now you can now import old saves and share any new progress between both platforms.

For those of you who already own Rainbow Moon, for a limited time you can take advantage of our PS3 player offer and grab Rainbow Moon on Vita at a 50% discount. PlayStation Plus subscribers can also save 20% during the first two weeks of launch, meaning you can pick up Rainbow Moon for as little as $5.99!

Finally, all Rainbow Moon add-ons support cross buy functionality, so any Rainbow Moon DLC purchased will automatically be applied to both systems.

Once again, thanks a lot to all our valued fans that have supported us during the last few years. I hope that you have as much fun playing Rainbow Moon as we had developing it. Please share your feedback and questions in the comments, and don’t forget to look out for Rainbow Skies, which will hit PS3 and PS Vita in the future.

I’m so glad you are giving people like me who bought the original ps3 version a discount. I’m curious, are there seperate trophies or the shared with ps3 version?

    Hi Ryumoau,

    we felt we owe our fans and all the people who have supported us at least a discount.

    Trophy set is the same one and synced with the PS3 version. That’s because of the cross save feature.

    Hope that helps.

i would like to see discounts on the ps3 version for those who not bought it yet or maybe a ultimate bundle which adds the vita version with the ps3 premium bundle.

HI Marcus…

Thank you for Rainbow Moob =D

This game is just perfect fit for PS vita i didn’t own the PS3 version but getting this one tomorrow no equation, Thank you SideQuest Studios for bringing this game to PS Vita

Rainbow Moon is tons of fun, and I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn’t played it yet.
With the Vita announce, I’m mostly disappointed in the shared trophy set, would have loved to get another platinum with this game. Because of that, I won’t be getting the Vita version. Well, that plus the fact I spent over 300 hours in this game the first time! This game was so addictive – bad Sidequest, bad :P Rainbow Moon pushed my huge backlog of other games down a big hole and now I can’t climb out, :)
I’m definitely looking forward to playing Rainbow Skies, no matter what my other games backlog looks like, that game will jump to the front of the line – so some high expectations for you, no pressure ;)
Thanks again for making this fun game!

What time will the game appear in the store? I’m new in the PS ecosystem.


+ Shuklar on December 3rd, 2013 at 8:42 am said:

Guess I’ll have to wait till Rainbow Skies to get some new trophies. I thought I read earlier in the year that it would have a separate list, which was kind of a motivating factor to play it again. But I guess cross-save is a more important feature than more trophies.

Thanks guys!

    Hi Shuklar,

    In that case it’s indeed hard to make everyone happy. We have thought about a new trophy set but it was a strong recommendation from Sony to use the same one if we support cross save and I think that’s what most people want. That’s of course no help for people who hoped for new trophies. I’m sorry for not having a more positive reply; Thanks for your feedback though.


+ saintaqua on December 3rd, 2013 at 9:07 am said:

I had already decided I wasn’t getting this again when I saw the 14.99 price….but since you are giving us a discount for having purchased it already, I’m all in!
I stopped playing RM when I heard you were making a Vita version. This is how I wanted to play it!
(Now, please make it for PS4 too…XD)


+ JeffsonP on December 3rd, 2013 at 9:27 am said:

Rainbow Moon will be available in the Brazilian PS Store too?


+ Figboy on December 3rd, 2013 at 9:28 am said:

I own this on PS3, but didn’t have the time to play it, but I will definitely be double dipping on the Vita version, and taking advantage of the Plus discount as well!

Thanks for supporting the Vita! Looking forward to Rainbow Skies as well!

Waiting for PS Store to open.
Rainbow Moon and new Ys game are my Vita games for the winter season.

Yay, thanks for the Vita support. The Vita is perfect for RPGs so the more, the merrier!


+ beetlegossip on December 3rd, 2013 at 9:51 am said:

I really shouldn’t be spending any money…. but…. you guys have worked hard to earn it, and have made it quite hard for me to argue otherwise with the PS3 Player Purchase Price. Well played, and take my money!!!


+ Dazd-N-Confusd on December 3rd, 2013 at 9:52 am said:

I have been waiting for this to hit the Vita. Don’t have a ton of time to put into it on my PS3 but now I can sink my teeth into it on the move. Awesome! Now if the PS Store would update I would get the download rolling.


+ Shuklar on December 3rd, 2013 at 9:56 am said:

Hey Marcus,

Thanks for the reply. I understand the position you guys were under, and cross save is definitely a better selling point than a separate trophy list.

I will still be buying Rainbow Moon Vita, and any DLC bonus items/coins you guys offer, because I truly believe your company is offering a great value for such an insanely low price. I spend thousands of dollars on gaming every year, and Rainbow Moon is certainly up there when it comes to fun vs value, which I honestly can’t say for a lot of games that start out at $60.

Thank you to your team, and I’m definitely looking forward to Rainbow Skies, in all its forms! Cheers!

I was on the fence about rebuying this game (good game) but with the discount for PS3 owners it’s now a no brainer to get it, thanks.


+ ElektroDragon on December 3rd, 2013 at 10:07 am said:

Please put Rainbow Skies on PS4!


+ Scrodus on December 3rd, 2013 at 10:13 am said:

Awesome! Been waiting for this one for a while now. Can’t wait to get it on my Vita :-)


+ SDkngsht on December 3rd, 2013 at 10:19 am said:

I had this game for the PS3 it was easy to pickup old school cartoonish but colorful & incredible art style and had a good amount of strategy to the battle mechanics. great game to check out if you’re looking for that old school RPG fix.

It’s like 8bit Final Fantasy with a touch of A Link to the Past with polished visuals. Excellent game perfect for on the go pick up & play or hours of commuting & road trips.


+ bcruise on December 3rd, 2013 at 10:32 am said:

Awesome deal for previous owners of the game. Definitely picking this up today. Can’t wait for Rainbow Skies!


+ Onvertic on December 3rd, 2013 at 10:32 am said:

Does it stil have those micro-transactions? And will Rainbow Skies also have them?

    + Marcus Pukropski on December 3rd, 2013 at 12:30 pm said:

    Hi Onvertic,

    yes, there is some DLC available for Rainbow Moon to speed up the game. I’m aware that on many discussion boards some people state that this DLC is required to be able to complete the game.

    Please let me clarify that this is not true! The whole game has been balanced without any DLC! In fact we’ve added the DLC feature *after* the game has been completed for people who want to rush through or just speed up the game.

    If you play on normal difficulty mode, you’re good if you defeat most of the visible monsters on the maps. No extra random battles are required and no DLC is required, so in my opinion this is far away from grinding.

    However the focus of the game are battles, so if you want to skip most of the battles, you’ll get into trouble sooner or later.

    But there is no dungeon or map that is locked because of DLC and you can get all the strongest weapons and items without buying any DLC. Again, it’s complete optional. Rainbow Moon is by no means a F2P game!

    For RainbowSkies we will present a different DLC model. But again, all DLCs in Rainbow Skies will also be 100% optional and not required to complete the game.

    Hope that helps.

+ bcruise on December 3rd, 2013 at 10:58 am said:

Okay, it looks like the game is up, but I have a bit of a problem…

The “Rainbow Moon PS3™ Player Special Offer” which looks like the 50% off does not show up in the Plus listings, only the $15 game. That means we can’t apply the Plus discount along along with the 50%, unless I’m misunderstanding.

It might just be that Plus isn’t updated yet. Just mentioning it.


+ bcruise on December 3rd, 2013 at 11:00 am said:

Disregard previous post, it changed from $7.49 to $5.99 when I added it to my cart. Kinda weird, but it’s working as intended.


+ avluis on December 3rd, 2013 at 11:11 am said:

Thanks a million for bringing this lovely game onto the PSVia as promised.
And as promised, I made use of the lovely discount (bough the PS3 version once the PSVita version was announced) and bought the PSVita version as well.
It’s really that easy, bring more games onto the PSVita and its owners will buy it.
But please take your time doing so and make sure that they are either proper ports or new experiences (like Tearaway).
Thanks again and hope to hear from you guys on your next project ;)


+ avluis on December 3rd, 2013 at 11:12 am said:

@41 I was going to mention that, the cart will update the value. Just make sure that you check this value for ‘free’ PS+ games and make sure that you see the discount before checkout.
Normally, just remove the game from the cart and re-add, that would fix it.


+ rjejr on December 3rd, 2013 at 11:15 am said:

Question – ” The latest version of Rainbow Moon adds more than 30 bug fixes, improvements, and new features to the original, ”

Are these improvements updated into the PS3 version as well? I’m abut 60 hours in, just started what I believe to be the last dungeon. Then of course there’s all the monsters to beat to death after that.

Also really looking forward to Rainbow Skies. I hope it itll comes out on PS3, my PS4 purchase is years away yet. If you want to port it to Wii U that’d b great too.


+ bcruise on December 3rd, 2013 at 11:23 am said:

@44 – There was a patch to PS3 Rainbow Moon about a week ago, so I’m guessing that they are. Especially since the game is cross-save compatible.

The PS3 Owner Discount is much appreciated. I will be purchasing the Vita version today. Thanks!
