Moon dev asks fans to help secure sequel

Creator of obscure JRPG after a "sponsor".

The producer of obscure 1997 PlayStation One Japanese role-playing game Moon: Remix RPG Adventure has called on fans to voice their support for a sequel so he can convince a company to fund it.

Kenichi Nishi asked fans to Tweet #Moon2 to drum up support for the possible release of a sequel to what some fans consider the greatest JRPG ever made.

Nishi wrote on Twitter (translated by Keza MacDonald for Eurogamer): "So that I can tell a sponsor 'we have around this many fans', if you'd like a sequel to Moon, please use the hashtag moon2.

"Feel free to say what kind of features and what difficulty you'd like. Personally I think online would be good."

At this stage it looks like more of a rallying call than a promise, and it's not clear whether a sponsor exists, but Moon fans will be encouraged.

According to translation by fans on forum NeoGAF, Nishi said Moon 2 is "not a sure thing" and "needs money for development costs".

Moon was created by Nishi's now defunct studio Love-de-Lic, Inc and published by ASCII Corporation. It was never released outside of Japan.
