Konami’s GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon Is A Surprise Switch Sequel To A 1987 Famicom Game

During Nintendo’s Indie World Showcase, Konami announced GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon, a sequel to the 34-year-old NES-era video game that was only published in Japan.

The original game that was released on Nintendo’s Famicon in 1987 (only in Japan), and the classic side-scrolling action-adventure game features Getsu Fuma, who’s on a quest to recover his fallen brothers’ swords and defeat the evil dragon master Ryukotsuki. The game features several different gameplay perspectives and was said to have inspired Konami’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game for NES.

GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon features roguelike elements and a unique art style that is described as an “Ukiyo-e style roguevania 2D action” game by Konami. It is currently being developed by indie studio GuruGuru in cooperation with Konami.
