One of the coolest resurrections in recent years has been the return of the Wonder Boy franchise. We have literally almost gotten a new entry in so many different aspects that I think all Wonder Boy fans will be happy from a remake of the first game, LizardCube remaking Wonder Boy and the Dragon’s Trap, a new entry with Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom, and now we are getting a remake of Monster World IV; with Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World.
Japanese publisher for the title, G Choice, has come out with developer Studio Artdink to confirm that Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World will launch on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Steam on April 22nd in Japan. The publisher also has two versions of the game on Switch, the regular version (3,980 yen) and the “Special Pack” (5,980 yen) that comes with a collectors box, two art books (one 80 pages, other 40 pages) and the game.
Western publisher ININ Games has come out and said that Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World is planned for a “early 2021” for both PlayStation 4 and Switch. Also something cool, this game will come with the original Monster World IV!
