The Wonder Boy collection will change this year
A wonder boy compilation is coming to Switch, according to a new ESRB ranking.
The pack will include four titles: Wonder Boy (arcade), Wonder Boy in Monster Land (arcade), Wonder in Monster World (Mega Drive / Genesis) and Monster World IV (Mega Drive / Genesis). These appear to be direct emulations of the originals, but creature comforts such as screen filters and the ability to rewind the action will also be included. An art gallery will also be part of the collection.
Although there hasn’t been an official announcement yet for Wonder Boy Collection, the UK Amazon listing has the following information:
Bringing together four of the best Wonder Boy games – from the original 1986 arcade release to 1994’s Monster World IV – this remarkable collection gives you the opportunity to experience one of the most influential series from video gaming’s past.
During the 1980s and 1990s, Wonder Boy games attracted huge audiences with their dazzling mix of high-energy platformer and action-RPG. Unlike other titans of the platform genre, however, the Wonder Boy games saw very limited release in the West on modern gaming hardware. Until now!
Wonder Boy games are designed to be simple to pick up and play for players of all skill levels, but contain enough depth and challenge to keep even the most experienced players busy. And now they’re updated with modern features like the ability to rewind your game at any time.
So whether you’re looking to try out this iconic game series for the first time, revisit a youth spent playing Wonder Boy, or add a refreshingly distinct platformer to your collection, Wonder Boy Collection is the perfect package for you. !
