The latest development blog update for Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom, an upcoming game from FDG Entertainment which carries on the Wonder Boy/Monster World franchise, has revealed that the game will have a graphical overhaul. The team says they plan to “rework the characters and their animations in the game”, shifting from a Flash animation-style look to hand-drawn anime characters. The change was made following online feedback and, in my opinion, is a reaction to the recently released Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap. The new style will feature brighter coloring, and different weapons and equipment will appear right on the sprite thanks to a technology the team has implemented.
The change is a positive one for sure. What do you think of the new style? Sound off in the comments below!
