    Talking Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom - Four years of development change everything Four years of development change everything

    Four years of development change everything

    Posted by FDG Entertainment on Thursday, January 18. 2018

    Dear Friends, Fans and Followers, Happy New Year 2018!

    What a journey..when Monster Boy development started over 4 years ago, we had no idea that we would end up with a project spanning over 4 years, stretching into 2018! It started as a small idea. We wanted to bring back the excitement of colorful side scrolling action adventures and ended working on our biggest project ever. When Wonder Boy creator Ryuichi Nishizawa came on board, it was clear that we have a very special and rare opportunity. It would allow us to continue one of the best game series ever created. While we designed Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom, we had more and more ideas which ultimately formed an incredible overall experience which we can't wait to share with you. We're lucky that we could do it as the long development is very expensive and a lot of blood, sweat and tears went into this project. It was only possible because the whole team at Game Atelier and FDG Entertainment is fully dedicated to this project with a big heart for the beautiful, straightforward fun of 16-Bit classic games. With the years, our skills improved and our expectations matured so we kept updating the graphics, too.

    Ultimately we ended up with a style that we believe is timeless just as the classic games. For now, please enjoy 6 of our Gamescom 2017 screenshots, updated with the new graphics. Our latest change was a big one: All of Monster Boys transformations are getting hand-drawn animations and it adds a lot of detail and character to the game. A very unique look for all generations of players:












    What's left now is a lot of 'crunching' towards a completed and bug free game - please hang on a little while longer until we can make the announcement you're all waiting for. Thank you for your patience and support during all the time. Much love to you from the whole team!

    Man finally, release seems to be pretty close. It's gonna be great to have Monster Boy along with the already-released Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap remake.

    Looks nice still, hoping they still go physical with it eventually like the other will see in around 2 weeks on Switch.

    It's happening, physical releases for both Switch and PS4, this summer.





    FDG Entertainment has revealed that the upcoming Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom will launch in both digital and physical formats, with Sega helping in the publication of the latter.

    Monster Boy is seen as the spiritual successor to the famous Wonder Boy series, which Sega owns the rights to. Previous Wonder Boy games were released on Sega systems, and the third entry was recently rebooted on Switch.

    Both the digital and physical versions of Monster Boy will launch in the summer at the same time.

    The later Tweet confirmed it for PS4.

    Looks a bit too much like flash for me, not bad just not my favorite.

    I have Dragon's Trap on disc for PS4 and loved it, but this is the game I have looked forward to most. It will feel so great putting a cartridge into the Switch of essentially a brand new entry on the series.
