Monster Boy is back! Developed by Game Atelier and published by FDG Entertainment, the latest installment of the beloved franchise is being overseen by Ryuichi Nishizawa, the creator of the Wonder Boy and Monster World series.
The game looks incredibly gorgeous, and the trailer showcases lots of action-packed side-scrolling action with a hint of challenge.
Players will be able to freely hot-swap between five different animal characters, each with their own unique abilities. The locations in the game vary from lush forests to haunted mansions, and you will be able to unlock five different magical abilities throughout the game. Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom will also feature access to all of the original characters, music, and assets from the Wonder Boy series.
Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom will be available to play on PS4, Xbox One, and PC sometime in early 2017.
