Wonder Boy – Asha in Monster World Officially Announced for PS4 and Nintendo Switch, Original Staff Involved

IGN have revealed a new title in the Wonder Boy series for Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch: Wonder Boy – Asha in Monster World. As the name suggests, the game sees the return of Monster World IV’s protagonist Asha, and her companion Pepelogoo.

It is being described as a new title rather than a remake, and interestingly will be fully dubbed. Members of the original Wonder Boy creative team are also said to be involved, with Artdink leading development alongside ININ Games on publishing. Specifically, Ryuichi Nishizawa is back in the Director’s chair, with Shinichi Sakamoto on music duties and Maki Ozara on character design.

It’s currently pencilled in for a 2021 release – whether we’ll see more platforms added to the lineup before release is yet to be seen. Either way, it’s a very welcome return for a cult-classic character, with many citing Monster World IV as the peak of the series. Apparently a full reveal is set for Gamescom later this week.

There’s also a mailing list, revealing the game’s logo and that Strictly Limited Games seem to be involved too – which isn’t wholly surprising, as they and ININ are also involved with Clockwork Aquario’s upcoming re-release, another title from the Wonder Boy team.
