Happy 31st anniversary to Wonder Boy in Monster World (Monster World 3)!

This fifth installment in the saga took the formula to a new level with a much larger and diverse world and callbacks from all previous entries.
It is a grand 1991 adventure filled to the brim with charm! ✨

An official image from Monster Boy Game that many of you here have likely never seen before.
This was before the game's release actually, but it's awesome that the team made festive artwork for Wonder Boy.
Would love to see more of that! 🔪🎃
