Amazon U.K. lists Wonder Boy Collection for PS4, Switch​


Includes Wonder Boy, Wonder Boy in Monster Land, Wonder Boy in Monster World, and Monster World IV.


Amazon U.K. has listed the unannounced Wonder Boy Collection from ININ Games for PlayStation 4 and Switch. This follows an Entertainment Software Rating Board rating earlier this month, and a brief GameFly listing under the title Wonder Boy Classics in October 2020.

The Amazon U.K. listings include the box art and description, which confirms it contains the titles Wonder Boy, Wonder Boy in Monster Land, Wonder in Monster World, and Monster World IV, each updated with modern features such as filters, shaders, a rewind option, and an art gallery. The release date is listed as June 22.

Here is an overview of the collection, via Amazon U.K.:

About

Bringing together four of the very best Wonder Boy games—from the original 1986 arcade version to 1994’s Monster World IV—this remarkable collection gives you a chance to experience one of the most influential series from gaming’s past.

Through the 1980s and 1990s, the Wonder Boy games built up a huge following with their dazzling blend of energetic platforming and action–RPG gameplay. Unlike other titans from the platform genre, however, the Wonder Boy games have seen very limited release in the West on modern gaming hardware. Until now!

The Wonder Boy games are designed to be simple to pick-up and play for gamers of every ability—but contain enough depth and challenge to keep even the most skilled players busy. And now they’re updated with modern features such as the ability to rewind your game at any moment.

So whether you’re looking to try this iconic gaming series for the first time, revisit a youth spent playing Wonder Boy, or add a refreshingly distinct platformer to your collection, Wonder Boy Collection is the perfect package for you!

Key Features
  • Four classic games from SEGA‘s influential platforming series.
  • Features Wonder Boy, Wonder Boy in Monster Land, Wonder in Monster World, and Monster World IV.
  • Precisely ported to modern consoles, with extended features like filter, shader, rewind option, and art gallery!
  • A fantastic blend of platforming and RPG action.
  • Get nostalgic with vibrant pixel art and crisp chiptune audio.
  • Simple and welcoming for new players—with enough depth and challenge to captivate the most devoted.
