I'm sure many of you remember the Arcade and home system ports of Wonder Boy, it was a game by Ryuichi Nishizawa that started its life as a skateboard rock jumping and enemy axe bashing platformer that later became a really cool medieval platformer with RPG elements. It was so good in fact, that we now have the spiritual successor to look forward to, in ' Monster Boy And The Cursed Kingdom ', which is being developed by FDG Entertainment GmbH in cooperation with Ryuichi Nishizawa!
According to FDG Entertainment, 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.
And if that isn't enough there is also going to be a high number of talent behind the OST such as Yuzo Koshiro (Streets of Rage,Etrian Odyssey, Shenmue), Motoi Sakuraba(Tales, Dark Souls, Mario Tennis), Michiru Yamane(Suikoden, Castlevania), Keiki Kobayashi (Ace Combat, Tekken,RifgeRacer), Takeshi Yanagawa(Shenmue, Armored Core) and Haruka Shimotsuki!(VNs, Mugen Souls, Atelier)
Sound like your sort of game? Good! Because it's coming 2016 to Playstation 4, Xbox One and Steam!
