    Default New Wonderboy Title announced! PS4/Switch

    https://wonderboy.inin.games/


    Publisher ININ Games and developer Studio Artdink have announced Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World for PlayStation 4 and Switch. It will launch in early 2021.

    Wonder Boy series creator Ryuichi Nishizawa has returned to lead and direct the new title, alongside original composer Shinichi Sakamoto, character designer Maki Oozora, and creative manager Takanori Kurihara.

    Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World stars Asha, the protagonist of the 1994-released Monster World IV, and her flying blue Pepelogoo, who must work together to save the world. The game is fully voiced, with Asha and other characters described as “lively and talkative.”

    A full reveal is planned for the Gamescom 2020 Awesome Indies showcase on August 29 at 10:00 a.m. PT / 1:00 p.m. ET, which you will be able to watch on IGN.

    Visit the teaser website here.

    Thanks, IGN and IGN Spain.

    Life!? ... What console is that on?

    I hope it's a 2D MWIV style game. If it is I'll probably get a Switch sooner or later.

    I hope Shion makes a cameo. (or better, hidden playable character)


    These two need to meet!

    Have you played the Cursed Kingdom yet? People slept on it but one of the best Metroidvanias in a while. (Side note while I used it, I hate the term. Fairy sure Wonder Boy II predates CV2 by a month or so)

    Oh and yes Cursed Kingdom is an official Wonder Boy sequel. Some have been confused on that.

    A cameo?! More like Shion needs to be the main character!

    It would be amazing if they designed the game in such a way that you can be both, and they both start off in their own world and you meet the other in a certain spot during the adventure.
    but they wont do that, its just gonna be Asha going on another adventure. probably a quick swap with an unreleased Shantae game.

    Sadly.

    I was expecting a remake by the leak of the title, but good to know is a sequel. I hope it's closer to 3 and 4 instead of that nonsense linear progression of the original game where you can lose forever the life upgrades.
    EDIT: confirmed to be a remake: https://www.gematsu.com/2020/08/wond...o-coming-to-pc
    Well, them I hope they fixed the game's problems.

    Is there any relationship between the Monster World series and Shantae? The Shantae games always reminded me of Monster World IV, until this news I thought they would be the closest I would see to a sequel.

    Wasn't there something about Monster World IV on MD being rushed and it was supposed to be bigger originally? I remember reading something about that once.

    literally none since they are not only unrelated but nothing alike.

    I was interested until I saw it was a remake. I'm bored of remasters and remakes, far more interested in sequels and originals.
