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.

Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom Release Pushed Back To Dec 4th!

Dear Friends, Fans and Followers,

this is a difficult one..
Unfortunately the production of the physical card/disc package ran into unforeseen difficulties. This forces us to reschedule the release once again, we’re very sorry about that. It turned out that the physical goods manufacturing takes longer than initially planned and we could only choose between rushing out in time or complete the Day-1 edition properly with keeping our promises of its content.

There was no question: we’re now reaching a 5 year production cycle of Monster Boy and it didn’t make sense to us to have an incomplete physical release so we decided to give the manufacturing process more time so the physical release can shine as the game itself. So much polishing, so much work – we don’t want to see a half-baked physical release.

We learned about the production difficulties yesterday so you can imagine that we had a very hectic 24 hours window to look for a new release date. The next possible and also reasonable date was December 4 so we reserved that one right away. Please understand that digital and physical release are tightly linked to each other so this means the game release will take place on December 4 for both digital and physical release. Again, we’re very sorry for the short notice and we can understand that this is gut punching news for some of you but there was no other way. We also wanted to let you know as quickly as possible. Thank you for your understanding.

Nicalis Releases Physical Version of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap For Nintendo Switch and PS4!

SANTA ANA, California, February 13, 2018—Nicalis, Inc. is proud to announce today’s physical release of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation®4 at major retailers across North America. In partnership with DotEmu, Nicalis has produced retail editions of the game with a generous collection of bonus items in the initial print run: a 12-track 3” mini CD music sampler, a full-color instruction booklet, a reversible cover and a cell phone strap of Wonder Boy’s alternate form, Lizard-Man.

The star of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is a brave adventurer who faces the quest of a lifetime after being stricken by a curse and transformed into a half-human/half-lizard by the evil Meka-Dragon. In search of a cure, the player will explore the interconnected world of Monster Land and encounter a variety of enemies and curse-wielding dragons. The six different forms of our shape-shifting hero—human, lizard, mouse, piranha, lion and hawk—each have different abilities and make up just a small percentage of the colorful cast of characters included in this non-stop action/adventure platformer.

Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is a beautifully drawn and animated remake of the unforgettable Sega Master System game Wonder Boy III. The Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 versions are presented in widescreen HD, with enhanced interface functions, a new playable character (Wonder Girl), adjustable difficulty levels, a gallery mode and more. Best of all, players can press a button at any time to toggle between the modern hand-drawn visuals and the original 8-bit graphics, or between the re-orchestrated music and the original chiptunes.

Published by Nicalis, the new physical release of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is rated E10+ by the ESRB and is available now on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 for $39.99 MSRP.
