Old-school Sega fans will undoubtedly remember Wonder Boy, a series of lovely sidescrolling action-RPGs starring heroes with big swords and colourful hair. Two game companies -- FDG Entertainment and The Game Atelier -- have partnered to bring it back. Well, sort of. Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is a sequel in everything but name, and this promising gameplay trailer seems to show a revival that captures what people loved about Wonder Boy -- music aside.
Originally announced earlier this year -- and scheduled for release in the first few months of 2016 -- Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is slated for PC, PS4, and Xbox One according to the folks behind it. I'm stoked to see more.
