Two friends saving the world
While the story remains true to the original 1994 game, Monster World IV is a full remake with cell-shaded 3D graphics and 2D gameplay that stays close to the beloved original. Asha, alongside her companion, Pepelogoo, must free the four spirits confined by evil forces, as she discovers their secret origins throughout her journey. Without their special friendship and interactions with Pepelogoo, Asha wouldn’t get far with her adventure alone. Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World contains puzzles and adventure elements that Asha and Pepelogoo can only solve together.
The mastermind behind Asha
“Now the adventure of Asha and Pepelogoo can be played on the latest consoles. Whether you’ve played the Mega Drive version of MW4 or not, I’ve tried to make it enjoyable for everyone. This is what I consider to be an ideal remake. I hope you will enjoy the game!
Welcome to Monster World!”– Ryuichi Nishizawa, the creator, and mastermind of the Monster World series, has overseen the creation and development of this remake and is overjoyed that the new game is finally being released.
