Spiritual Rainbow Moon sequel, Rainbow Skies, announced for PS3 and Vita

Man, the PlayStation 3 is getting some good news today — the Vita too! SideQuest Studios announced today that Rainbow Skies, an indirect sequel to last year's addictive RPG Rainbow Moon, is coming exclusively to the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita in 2014.

For those unfamiliar, Rainbow Moon is a turn-based RPG that was nominated as the "Best Indie Game" in the PSN Gamers' Choice Awards 2013. Rainbow Skies takes fan feedback into consideration and introduces a brand new game that takes place in a new world, with new characters, monsters, and a new story that's not linked to its predecessor.

"Rainbow Skies is more than just a sequel," said SideQuest Studios Marcus Pukropski. "We’ll be introducing many new features, including monster taming, an advanced battle system with new combo attacks, new dungeon action elements, a new dialog and emoticon system, new treasure hunt quests, an improved side quest system, explorable buildings, and new mini-games."

As an indirect sequel, Rainbow Skies will stay true to the studio's roots; turn-based battles, free world and dungeon exploration, and extensive character development are all returning.

While the game will have cross-play capability, no decisions have been made regarding cross buy. As for the price, ti will be similar to Rainbow Moon which sells for $14.99 on the PlayStation Store.
