I’ve been in Vancouver over the past week and been putting some serious time into my Super Nintendo. Everything from Super Adventure Island to Mario RPG to Lemmings. I’d love to see some more 2D side scrollers available on my Xbox One and PS4 and Monster Boy And The Cursed Kingdom looks like it delivers.
If you’re at Gamescom this week stop by the Xbox Booth in Hall 8 to check it out! For the rest of us we can expect to see the game in January 2017.
Official release below:
A legendary game series returns with an all-new adventure! Monster Boy is a colourful side-scrolling action adventure created in cooperation with Ryuichi Nishizawa, the creator of the Wonder Boy* Monster World* series (* Trademark of SEGA Corporation Japan). Monster Boy is being created to bring back the enjoyment of classic games that shine by simplicity. Pure, exciting gameplay; upbeat music and smooth graphics. You’ll need to overcome huge bosses, find hidden passages, discover powerful equipment and use all your wits and skills to remove a powerful curse. Monster Boy can transform into 5 different creatures, each with their own skills and abilities. Take advantage of all the unique powers to open new paths and advance in an epic story. Monster Boy is a love letter to gaming from the 80’s and 90’s – will you join us and celebrate together with us?
