Moonlighter has been a game that Digital Sun has wanted to release since 2017 but for whatever reason was eventually pushed back to this month. Ever since, the KickStarter campaign for this game first started the game has received approximately 5,229 backers along with raising over $134,000 for the project.
The fact that over $134,000 donated for the development of Moonlighter is impressive especially considering the fact that the pledged goal for the game was $40,000.

Moonlighter looks like it has the potential to be one of the most popular 2D RPG titles of the year along with being a game that many people would want to own for the PS4 and the Nintendo Switch.
When it comes down to the fighting genre of gaming it seems 2018 will end up being a positive year. While Dragon Ball FighterZ is currently one of the hottest fighting titles in America and Japan another big game that we can look forward to this year is Naruto to Boruto Shinobi Striker developed by Soleil Ltd. In this game players will be able to engage in online multiplayer Ninja battles with up to teams of four.

As of right now there has been no mention of the game being released for the Nintendo Switch.
But since the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy will be released for the Switch consoles it’s uncertain if Naruto to Boruto Shinobi Striker will appear on the Switch console this year or even in 2019. Based the trailer for this game looks its definitely going to be one of the biggest fighting titles of 2018 along with Soul Calibur 6 and Dragon Ball FighterZ.
As it currently stands Monster Hunter World is one of the most popular video games in the world right now. Ever since Monster Hunter World was first released in January 26th if this year the game has reportedly sold over 6 million copies worldwide. This action RPG had impressed many people when it was first revealed at E3 2017. There was no doubt that Monster Hunter was going to be one of the most popular RPG titles of 2018.
However, it seems like the success Monster Hunter World has exceeded the expectations of many people including executives of Capcom themselves. At this rate Capcom will probably end up selling over 12 million copies worldwide before 2019.
There are countless games that the world is waiting to see in 2018. One of the more interesting titles that we are going to see on game consoles such as the PS4 is Concrete Genie which is a game developed by Pixelopus. The plot for Concrete Genie is interesting since the story revolves around a bullied teenager named Ash who can bring landscapes and creatures to life through paintings.
Players will have plenty of fun help Ash restore his town known as Denska as they progress throughout the game. As of right now the rating for Concrete Genie is still pending along with the fact that the game still does not have specific release date. But there is no doubt that Concrete Genie will definitely appeal to gamers who are interested in action titles.
Ever since Monster Hunter World was released for the PS4 and the Xbox One many people have wondered whether or not the game was ever going to be ported for the Nintendo Switch. Not to long ago Capcom has recently commented on bringing Monster Hunter World to the Nintendo Switch and they believe that it would be a incredibly difficult task. It’s not like Capcom has no interest in having Monster Hunter World on the Nintendo Switch at all.
The problem is the fact that the Nintendo Switch may not be able to handle the game itself due to the limitations it has in comparison to the PS4 and the Xbox One. But on the plus side Monster Hunter World will be appearing on Microsoft Windows during the second half of 2018 which is probably better than having the game on the Nintendo Switch.
