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.
