FDG Entertainment has provided a brief, first look at Monster Boy running on Switch with a new gameplay clip. Watch it below.

Monster Boy will be playable on Switch for the first time at Gamescom next week.

A new blog post went up on the official Monster Boy blog this week covering the game’s map features. In the game, you’ll have a map that shows an overview at all times.

The image above offers a look at the map, which is only partially filled in to avoid spoilers.

Players will start out at the beach, leading up to a lighthouse with the first boss encounter. The map “not only shows the pathway, but many more details.”

Here’s a rundown of map features you can expect:

Planning on attending Gamescom 2017 in Germany next month? If so, you’ll be able to go hands-on Monster Boy, as a playable demo will be running on Switch.

FDG Entertainment shared the news in a blog post published today. A handful of screenshots have also been released, available below.

FDG Entertainment published another new blog for Monster Boy. For today’s entry, we’re once again able to see how one of the game’s areas has been completely reworked.

This is what Monster World Village used to look like:

And the new version:

The old version of the inn “looks nice but not refined enough to meet todays standards.” As for the new version, it “shows the new quality level which we aim to reach in all areas of the game.” The developers added: “With 4 years in production, we don’t want to have any drawbacks and finish the game properly so it can shine and impress.”

Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap made it to Switch last month, but we also can’t forget about Monster Boy – which is also planned for the system. Last week, the developers shared a blog to show off the game’s improved visuals.

What you see is the new visual style. The image below is the old version. It now features added lighting and detail.

Good news: Monster Boy may not be too far off. The team is now “in the final stage of development.”

In a post made on the forum NeoGaf earlier today, a developer from FDG Entertainment stated that, while too earlier to confirm anything, the Switch and PS4 will be likely to see physical releases. Read the full post below.

It’s too early to confirm anything but Switch and PS4 have the best chances for a physical release because of a less risky business. That said we love Xbox One too – everyone from the ID@Xbox Team is super nice and helpful. We’ll see! Hopefully there’s enough interest coming from players of all platforms while we’re pitching to retail distributors. The amount of Twitter votes for a physical copy of Monster Boy have been very encouraging so far. Thanks for the continued interest!

It seems somewhat likely that we’ll see a physical release here. We’ll keep you updated should anything more concrete show up.
