As a spiritual successor to the dear Wonder Boy series (that got its very own well-regarded movie this past year), the forthcoming Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is planning to bring over the timeless side-scroller platforming gameplay of yesterday using some contemporary tweaks, and luckily those trying to experience it won’t need too much longer to wait.
Publisher FDG Entertainment has declared that Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom will be aiming for a Summer 2018 brand new window, and if no specific release date was revealed at this time, people searching for a physical variant of the game will also be pleased to know that it’s going to be offered at retail too.
FDG Entertainment shown that it’s partnering with SEGA to create physical editions of Monster Boy for both PS4 and also the Nintendo Switch, and that the bodily editions of the game will launch simultaneously with the game’s digital release this summer.
Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom will launch for PS4, Xbox One, Switch, along with PC in Summer 2018.
We’re happy to announce the Monster Boy will even launch on #PS4 disc This Summer! Super enthusiastic about the opportunity to utilize @Sega to find the greatest possible retail partner coverage in North America.
