Asha in Monster World

Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World is a 2.5D Remake of Monster World IV

The curtains have been thrown back in Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World, and it turns out that it’s not a completely new game. Instead, this title is going to be a remake of Monster World IV, which originally launched for Sega’s Mega Drive in Japan and saw digital English release through 2012 ports. The game will release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC in Q1 2021.

Check out the reveal trailer below:

Key figures from the original team at Westone are behind Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World, along with Artdink and Inin Games. As previously reported, Ryuichi Nishizawa will be acting as its director, Shinichi Sakamoto will handle the audio, and Maki Ozora will design characters. It will also feature full voice acting throughout the adventure.

The trailer shows off how this game remasters some of the game’s bosses and scenery, and we also see how gameplay looks with its new 2.5D artstyle. The trailer refers to the game as “fully remastering” the original, which likely means that the gameplay will be very similar to the original.

Asha in Monster World isn’t the only remake in the series to have released in recent years. Back in 2017, Wonder Boy and the Dragon’s Trap released as a remake of Master System release Wonder Boy IIIMonster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom, meanwhile, was a completely original game made in the style of Wonder Boy III.

Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World releases on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC in Q1 2021.
