Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World goes PC next week

You say you want to save the world from evil invaders? That's the spirit! Now, just find three more...

Already released on Switch and PlayStation 4 last month, Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World arrives next on Steam, its publisher announced today. Players worldwide will finally be able to enjoy the reworked platformer/RPG even if they don't have a spiffy console.

Developed by ArtDink, the console version of Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World was published in the west by ININ Games and Strictly Limited Games. However, ArtDink is publishing the PC version as the second release under its new label, G Choice.

Originally, Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World was published for the Mega Drive/Genesis. It was developed by Westumbit Entertainment Co., Ltd. and served as the final installment in the once-popular Wonder Boy series from Sega.

The game introduces Asha, a newly-minted warrior who must fight off invaders who have captured four spirits. Alongside Peperogu, a mysterious creature from the city of Rapadana, Asha will overcome "various difficulties" and hopefully save her world from destruction.

Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World features RPG elements, as Asha can collect gold coins and use them to purchase gear such as swords and shields, to say nothing of... bangles. Everybody can use some bangles.

The game's Steam page won't let you place a preorder at present, but it does warn potential consumers that they will need a controller to play; keyboard/mouse support is not provided. Which is probably fine, given that the game is a platformer and those are usually best served by a friendly d-pad, but now you know.
