Monster Boy – not to be confused with Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap – was announced earlier in the year. The side-scrolling adventure will let players transform into different animals to solve puzzles and progress through the world.

Here’s an overview:

“A legendary game series returns with an all-new adventure! Monster Boy is a colourful side-scrolling action adventure created in cooperation with Ryuichi Nishizawa, the creator of the Wonder Boy* Monster World* series (* Trademark of SEGA Corporation Japan). Monster Boy is being created to bring back the enjoyment of classic games that shine by simplicity. Pure, exciting gameplay; upbeat music and smooth graphics. You’ll need to overcome huge bosses, find hidden passages, discover powerful equipment and use all your wits and skills to remove a powerful curse. Monster Boy can transform into 5 different creatures, each with their own skills and abilities. Take advantage of all the unique powers to open new paths and advance in an epic story. Monster Boy is a love letter to gaming from the 80’s and 90’s – will you join us and celebrate together with us?”

Thankfully, we now know that Monster Boy will be appearing on Nintendo platforms. Publisher FDG Games told Nintendo Life, “We’ll certainly bring this game [to] a Nintendo console. I can’t say more yet, unfortunately.”

Here’s a new trailer:

Monster Boy will be playable at Gamescom later this week. It should be out later this year.
