About Wonder Boy: Monster Land

After the defeat of the evil king, the kingdom of Wonder Land was a paradise…for a time. The peace was broken when a ferocious, fire-breathing dragon struck without warning and took over Wonder Land with a swarm of evil, monstrous henchmen, turning the once-peaceful land into the utterly chaotic Monster Land. Realizing he is Wonder Land’s last hope, Wonder Boy sets out on an incredible journey to rid the country of the monsters and defeat the “invincible” evil dragon.

Virtua Racing and Wonder Boy: Monster Land are now available individually on the Nintendo Switch eShop in the Americas and Europe for $7.99, with commensurate European pricing.
