There won’t be that big of a gap between the Japanese and worldwide release dates for Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World. It showed up in Japan back in April 2021. Everywhere else will get its Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World PS4 and Switch copies on May 28, 2021. However, the PC version won’t show up on Steam until June 29, 2021.
Exact prices for both digital and physical console copies also came up. Digital copies will be $34.99/€34.99/£31.49. However, the physical ones will be $39.99/€39.99/£34.99. People who opt for the latter will get both the StudioArtDink remake and playable ports of the original Monster World IV. (The Collector’s and Mega Collector’s Editions both include the extra game as well.)
As a reminder, Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World isn’t the only remake of a game in the series. For example, there was also 2017’s Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap. That offered a new take on Wonder Boy III: The Dragon’s Trap.
Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World will come to the PS4 and Switch on May 28, 2021 outside Japan. It is immediately available in Japan. It will come to the PC worldwide on June 29, 2021.
