The arrival of LizardCube's gorgeous remake of Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap really did bring the franchise back from the dead. Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom put a more modern spin on things in 2018, and now, Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World is on its way to PlayStation 4 later this year. This newest adventure is a remake of Mega Drive classic Monster World IV, and has key members of the original team working on it.

Today, a new trailer emerged, showcasing the game's cheery, colourful visual style and refinements to the gameplay. A physical version of the remake is due to release alongside the digital SKU, as seen in the video, with a vague release date of Q2 2021. A firm release date can't be too far away.
