First Rainbow Moon Screenshots Give A Glimpse Of The PlayStation 3 RPG

By Ishaan . June 22, 2011 . 10:01am

The developers of Söldner-X are developing a strategy RPG for the PlayStation 3, titled Rainbow Moon. The game will have 15 different kinds of terrain and six main characters. The story mode, Eastasiasoft say, will take about 25 hours to get through. If you plan to do all the sidequests and develop the characters full, that amounts to around 100 hours.


Sidequest Studios and Eastasiasoft announced Rainbow Moon back in March, but now we have the first screenshots of the game. It’s planned for a late 2011 release on PlayStation Network.

  • Hopefully its supported on PS Vita. I loved Soldner X-2, seems to have a nice art style.

    To be honest, as an RPG fan, this game flew COMPLETELY under the radar. I never heard about this until now… though since it is an SRPG, I am rather indifferent. I see leveling exceeds 100, so that is interesting and makes me wonder where that caps. The color is nice, the style is pretty meh, but hey, the more the merrier I suppose.

  • I see no moons made of rainbows. False advertisement!

    • Notice the elevated, 3/4s view? You are the rainbow moon.

      • Awww, I’ve always wanted to be a rainbow moon! <3

      • @ A @ … i… it’s what I’ve always wanted.

        And then Shinsua was a zombie made of cheese.

    Hmm looks pretty good. I’d definately buy this on the psn.

  • Robert Mullin

     So it will take 100 hours to do all the sidequests…and it is made by sidequest studios. Where is this day headed?

  • “Beast day”?  SOLD

    Also, I keep reading “Eastasiasoft” as “euthanasia”. :/

    • …Is it wrong to find that funny…? ‘Cause I had to smile reading your comment…

    • Kunio_kun

      Hirsute, I’m a BEASTMAN!
      Where did we go wrong, Shining Force?

  • Where is this game being made? I just can’t get into the art style, which is a shame for a strategy game fan.

    • 1) Germany
      2) I agree

      • Thanks for the info. I guess that would explain my total indifference toward this game. Nothing against Germany personally, just more of a Japanese art fan.

        • SideQuest (the developer) is German but Eastasiasoft (publisher) is Hong Kong based.  Probably have better luck if they have an Asian partner later on.

          The character design doesn’t interest me either, but the look of the top ground graphics are okay.

  • ok i’m a bastard but…
    is this really on ps3? :X

  • HistorysGreatestMonster

    Loved the Soldner-X games and love SRPG’s, so I will be downloading this.

  • Ladius

    The game looks really promising, but that artwork is one of the ugliest I have seen in professional games in the last years… It reminds me of Vandal Hearts Flame of Judgement, another good tactical jrpg with horrifying art direction :

    Interesting. But the screenshots don’t show (enough) action. Can’t wait for more.
