Wonder Boy lives on as newly announced “Monster Boy”, will be considered for Wii U

Yesterday, FDG Entertainment announced that it has teamed up with The Game Atelier to make Monster Boy And The Wizard Of Booze. It’s intended to be a spiritual sequel to SEGA’s Wonder Boy series. Interestingly enough, Ryuichi Nishizawa – the creator of Wonder Boy – is providing input.
Monster Boy and the Wizard of Booze may look familiar. That’s because The Game Atelier is taking what it created with the cancelled Flying Hamster 2 project, and turning it into something new. Monster Boy And The Wizard Of Booze features a new hero and removes the hamsters. Other elements have been improved/changed as well. You can learn more in an official post here.
Monster Boy And The Wizard Of Booze is currently coming to the PlayStation 4, PC and “more” formats. It sounds like a Wii U version could happen, as FDG’s Thomas Kern told Nintendo Life the following:
It’s a pretty exciting day as we didn’t expect such an overwhelming positive response from the Internet. After all, there hasn’t been any news about the series for years.
We love the Wii U but for the moment I can’t confirm anything. It’s definitely considered as we believe Nintendo fans would appreciate the game.
