Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World Release Date Announced

For over 30 years, the Wonder Boy series has delivered fast-paced action-platforming – with its fourth entry being a hidden gem for many years. An early-day WiiWare release allowed it to be played in English for the first time alongside a later PS3 release. This past year, it was announced that Asha’s tale will be reborn on modern hardware – and now we have a release date on it.

The original game was a proto-Metroidvania with a unique setting and it’s held up wonderfully over time. This version features tightened up gameplay and revamped graphics. The digital PS4 and Switch versions will be released in the US and EU on May 28 in physical and digital versions. The physical versions will include the original game, while the Steam version releases one month later on June 28.
