At long last, it appears that Monster Boy is finally set to debut both digitally and physically for the Nintendo Switch on December 4, as stated by publisher FDG Entertainment early last month.

After what was a somewhat tumultuous period of release date delays from Spring to Summer, the studio has announced that the game has gone gold, setting the release date in stone once and for all.

Monster Boy will be arriving slightly later than originally expected. Due to “unforeseen difficulties” with the production of the physical version, it’ll now be releasing on December 4.

Monster Boy was originally scheduled for a November 6 launch. That means we’re looking at roughly a month delay.
