Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World Gets a New Trailer, Q2 2021 Release Window

Monday, January 25th, 2021

The upcoming remake of Monster World IV, Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World, has received a new trailer and a fresh round of details to go along with it.

The trailer is notable as is showcases a fair improvement over the previous ones; Asha’s animations appear to have been reworked, and on the whole it looks a bit nicer. The latest press release makes particular mention that the developers have been taking on feedback, and given the frosty reception to the initial showings, it’s sure looking like it.

The trailer also gives us more of the Japanese voice acting being added to the game, as well as a new Q2 2021 release window. There’s also a reaffirmation that physical copies of the game will include the original Mega Drive title on a separate cartridge for Nintendo Switch, and as a download for PS4; Gematsu reports that this version will now be available at retail, whereas previously it seemed like it’d be exclusive to Strictly Limited, with only 3000 copies being made.

Japan has received a more solid release date of April 22nd, and will also be getting physical versions; their Special Pack will include two artbooks.

Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World is launching for Nintendo Switch and Playstation 4 later this year.

Wonder Boy: Asha In Monster World Physical Editions Announced, All Editions Include Original Mega Drive Version

Thursday, December 17th, 2020

Upcoming Monster World IV remake Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World will be getting a few physical editions of varying complexity, from Strictly Limited Games.

The contents of each pack vary; there’s the regular edition which simply gets you a physical copy of the game for either Nintendo Switch or Playstation 4 (there is no physical option for the PC version), followed by the Collector’s Edition which comes with the entire kitchen sink – including your very own squishable Pepelogoo. Finally there’s the Mega Collector’s Edition, which has the contents of the CE as well as some more extras on top; including a sticker, pin badge, and even an exclusive statue of Asha and Pepelogoo.

Most notably though, all physical versions will include the original Mega Drive version of Monster World IV, ported to the respective platform. For Switch owners, it’ll be included on the cartridge, while PS4 owners will receive a download code for the MD title.

According to Gematsu,  pre-orders will open later today. They also have a detailed run-down of what each edition contains. If you want one you’ll have to act though; even the regular edition is limited.

Darius Cozmic Revelation’s Ebten DX Pack Will Include A Physical Version of the Mega Drive Port Seen on the Mega Drive Mini, Switch/PS4 Code for Prime Day Pre-Orders

Friday, October 9th, 2020

Taito have revealed the various editions of the upcoming Darius: Cozmic Revelation bundle, which includes G-Darius HD and Darius Burst Another Chronicle EX+ for Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch. It wouldn’t be a modern Taito re-release if there weren’t a bunch of extremely confusing differences across each version though, and none are more important here than the ‘Famitsu DX Pack’.

The ebten store version of the Famitsu DX Pack will include a physical cartridge version of ‘Darius Extra Version’, a Mega Drive port of Darius. If that sounds familiar, it’s because said port was actually included on the Mega Drive Mini!

Meanwhile, anyone who pre-orders the game from midnight October 13th to midnight October 15th (a 48 hour period) via Amazon will get a special ‘Prime Day’ bonus – a download code for the Mega Drive version of Darius that you can use on Nintendo Switch or Playstation 4. It’s currently not clear whether this will be released separately down the road, but looking at Taito’s history of locking entire games within collections behind pre-orders bonuses, we wouldn’t exactly hold our breath.

Sadly, Strictly Limited’s Western physical release makes no mention of the Mega Drive version in either download code or physical form; but we’ll update if this suddenly changes.

Darius Cozmic Revelation will be released February 25th 2021 in Japan. Strictly Limited’s version is expected to ship in June or July.

Thursday, August 27th, 2020

Announced alongside 2 brand new compilations of Turrican franchise ports, a new Director’s Cut version of Mega Turrican is being produced for the Mega Drive by Strictly Limited Games.

There are no exact details as to what this Director’s Cut version of Mega Turrican will entail, but if it’s going to be anything like the Director’s Cut version of Super Turrican which launched alongside the Analogue Super NT, then it should contain a new level, new graphics and new music.

You can pre-order the Mega Drive version of Mega Turrican: Director’s Cut in either a black checkerboard case or red Genesis-style case from Strictly Limited Games for €49.99. The cartridge includes the original Mega Turrican, a new Mega Turrican Score Attack game and Mega Turrican: Director’s Cut. The cartridge is aiming to ship around April/May 2021. You can also get Mega Turrican, Mega Turrican Score Attack and Mega Turrican: Director’s Cut as a part of the Turrican Anthology Vol. 1 & 2 compilations for Switch or PS4.
