Dimitri on :

I love you guys!

FDG,Thomas on :

We love you more! :-)

Shahaf Wallach on :

Huh? what about the PC version?

FDG,Thomas on :

PC Version is still coming but is planned for a Winter release. Thanks for checking!

Blake00 on :

Awesome! PC release is where my money will be going.

emiliano on :

why pc version this winter?

ZhadoTom on :

Most likely because PC has a vaster choice of hardware so maybe they're ensuring it all works.. plus multiple input support amongst other things.. like steam integration.

FDG,Thomas on :

Exactly right! :-)

emiliano on :

thanks for explanation, I was hoping to play it soon :-(

Dashiell on :

These games made my childhood. Can barely wait to play Monster Boy! It's looking gorgeous and fun!

FDG,Thomas on :

Very happy to hear you like it. Thanks a lot! ^^

Rekon on :

Why no mention of the Xbox version on the trailer? Seems odd. Looking forward to the game. Looks mint.

FDG,Thomas on :

It will also release on Xbox One but not physical. That's why the ending animation of the trailer only shows PS4 and Switch Pre-Order info. Xbox One release will be same day but digital only. Thanks for checking!

Bogusrj on :

Good, day one for me!

FDG,Thomas on :

Thank you for supporting us!! :-)

Spidey981 on :

Bonjour à tous

Je suis absolument ébloui par ce nouveau trailer, c'est tellement agréable de voir enfin les nouveaux sprites en mouvement. Les animations dessinés à la main sont sublimes, j'ai envie d'ouvrir ce livre et me plonger dans cette aventure. La nouvelle cinématique d'intro à l'air encore mieux que la précédente, sans vouloir dénigrer le travail de ceux qui ont réalisé l'ancienne. Hormis celle d'intro, est ce qu'il y en aura d'autre par exemple quand Jin trouvera une nouvelle orbe ? Je sais que la date sera annoncée plus tard mais est ce qu'elle le sera " bientôt " ? J'ai tellement hâte de pouvoir enfin poser mes mains sur ce petit bijou et d'aider Jin à libérer Monster World ^_^
Après quatre longues années d'un travail titanesque j'espère de tout coeur que le jeu aura le succès que vous méritez tous.

Spidey981 on :

P.S: Je me demandais qui était l'interprète de la chanson et s'il est possible d'avoir les paroles ou un lien sur lequel je pourrais les avoir. Il y'a une autre question qui me taraude, à 1:05 Jin passe du cochon à la grenouille puis au dragon sans passer par la case serpent et lion ni même utiliser la " roue " des transformations que l'on voit au début du trailer. Y'a t'il des raccourci hormis les gâchettes pour changer de formes ? Plus je regarde ce trailer et plus j'ai envie d'y jouer.

Fabien - Game Atelier on :

Bonjour Spidey981,
Heureux de lire vos commentaires à propos de ce nouveau trailer.
Non, il n'y aura pas d'interruption du jeu avec ce genre d'animation pendant l'aventure de Jin.
Le compositeur de la musique de ce trailer est Tee Lopes et le chanteur Leandro Fonseca.
Les paroles sont disponibles ici: https://justpaste.it/4vdgp
Les passages où le joueur utilise la roue des transformations ont été coupés pour des raisons de timing.
Merci encore pour le soutien!

Bogusrj on :

When the xbox version will be launch?

FDG,Thomas on :

The Xbox One version will launch on the same day as PS4 and Switch versions but it's a digital-only release.

Ianuzzo on :

Looks fantastic , great job !

FDG,Thomas on :

Thanks a lot, Ianuzzo!

Ianuzzo on :

Haha, that's awesome. Thanks !

Ianuzzo on :

Watching the trailer something caught my eye.
At 0:23 you see the frog with 666 coins. Hmm....so he's secretly the devil? What did i win to find that out? ;-)

FDG,Thomas on :

Interesting, but we had no specific intention here :-) You win a free coin, we'll drop it to your screen when you play the game ;-)

Keon Winters on :

The new animation looks great; I was excited to see the different armors and Shion (?) carrying the spear like he had in Wonder Boy In Monster World (only in your game, he can equip a shield at the same time--which is great.) The song in the trailer strongly reminded me of the theme song for the 90's gummi bears tv show. I can't wait for the PC release.

FDG,Thomas on :

Thanks a lot, glad you like it!! BTW: Having visible changes when wearing different equipment was one of the biggest challenges of the new artstyle. It was very difficult to combine hand drawn animation with dynamic clothes/armors, weapon, etc. and make it look and move nice and smooth.

chibitetsuo on :

bonjour, j'acheterais ce jeu, étant possésseur "encore actuellement de plusieurs version de wonderboy en boite et livret "collectionneur oblige" je n'arrive pas à comprendre comment un titre "français" et c'est une grande fierté soyons chauvin...ne soit pas en précomande en france...amazon me propose un petit frais de livraison de 17 dollars en plus du prix du jeu...

avez vous l'intention apres l'e3 par exemple ?

1 : de peut etre fournir une demo?

2 : d'ouvrir des précommande en france?

sur tout le reste j'espere que votre travail sera récompensé par beaucoup de vente, je ferais parti des acheteurs merci à vous :-)

Fabien - Game Atelier on :

Bonjour,
Pas de démo prévue car nous restons concentrés sur la fin de production du jeu.
La sortie du jeu physique sur Nintendo Switch et PS4 est uniquement prévue en Amérique du nord mais le jeu est compatible avec toutes les consoles, même européennes. Monster Boy sera disponible simultanément en version dématérialisée sur tous les stores Nintendo Switch, PS4 et Xbox One dans le monde.
Merci beaucoup pour le commentaire et votre immense soutien!

jj on :

Looks like the best platform game ever made. Wow, really looks great + sound effects sound good too.Can't wait.

FDG,Thomas on :

Glad you like it, JJ - can't wait to hear back from you when you started playing the game. :-)

Manu on :

Nailed it! Instant buy!

FDG,Thomas on :

Thanks a lot, Manu ^_^

Dean Winchester on :

Hi!

Amazing work, the wait it's nearly over! ^^

But I was wondering for the exact release date, Amazon Says 23 of September, and you say 'in summer', but summer finish on the same day, so it's the last day of summer or that date is only a pleceholder?

Also, the digital version cost the same 40 bucks or 20-30 in digital version?

Thanks for the game! Regards from Spain!

FDG,Thomas on :

Hi Dean, thank you very much! ^_^

There's currently no exact release date, just a vague 'Summer 2018' until we sorted everything with the various platforms and physical release work. The dates in shops like Amazon are placeholders. The digital version will cost $39.99. cheers!

Cris G. on :

incredible, this game is just a declaration of love to 2d and old school games.

Instant buy

FDG,Thomas on :

Thank you so much! Glad you like it ^_^

MagiX on :

No PC/steam version ?
no buy game

tired of being the last served, see not served at all, while the games are developed on PC

MWH on :

They said it will be released on PC as well later.

MWH on :

Any plans for GOG release?

FDG,Thomas on :

when we finished the PC version we'll try to get on as many portals as possible but I can't confirm any other than Steam and Windows store at the moment.

vitafan on :

No PS Vita release?

FDG,Thomas on :

No Vita release, sorry!

Locomotive on :

Great one word great

The boss the mushroom great to see him back again i hope that he has more fighting spirit then in the other game

Btw
Are there hidden doors that you only can find by pressing up

And other regular faces that you can find or walk in to let s say shion

Can t wait to play this

FDG,Thomas on :

Thanks a lot!
At the moment we don't have more to share but please stay tuned for additional info in the future. I hope you're enjoying the game when it's out! :-)

Jonas Lönnqvist on :

Looks super nice. New animations looks much better the expected. Really looking forward to play the game. Will probably buy for Xbox first and then PC version.

Olivier VALLEE on :

Hello


Bon bah, je dis OUI OUI OUI.
J'avais un peu peur avec les nombreux "retards" et les changements de design mais là, je suis rassuré.
Question : A quand ce jeu pré-payable MAIS EN FRANCE svp ?

Merci en tout cas.

Olivier

Fabien - Game Atelier on :

Bonjour,
Merci pour le commentaire!
Pour reprendre ma réponse d'un peu plus haut:
Monster Boy version physique sur Nintendo Switch et PS4: uniquement en Amérique du nord, region-free, précommandes ouvertes à tous http://www.monsterboy.com/preorder/
Monster Boy version dématérialisée sur tous les stores Nintendo Switch, PS4 et Xbox One du monde.

OL on :

I know there's a lot of love going on, and for good reason (game looks great), but man... that song is hard to listen to. It's a strange feeling, being so excited for a game while watching its trailer, but simultaneously cringing at how cheesy the music is.
Not a deal-breaker or anything (nothing can keep me away from a legitimate ode to my favorite childhood game), just a mention. I might have expected something a little more "Lair Lair Lair"-esque, rather than a vocal track evoking 80s American cartoons.

FDG,Thomas on :

Thanks for the feedback, OL! Well, the music is a bit on the 'mainstream' side but we believe it's good for the franchise because more people will hopefully want to check it out and that would help to continue the series. The overall feedback on the music is awesome (you can see it in the comments of the YouTube trailer) but we understand that it's not for everyone. However, ingame you can switch between USA/Japanese intro song (the Japanese one is quite different). Also, the ingame music is classic videogame music and doesn't have more pop songs ;-)

ALFREDO on :

The game looks fantastic congratulations Thomas and the rest of the team at FDG games you took all great inputs from the fans and the negative criticsm and delivered what will be a fantastic game I can't wait to play this game.

FDG,Thomas on :

Thank you very much, Alfredo! Very happy to hear you like the results of our work as shown in the trailer! :-)

Spidey981 on :

Salut tout les fans. Voici un lien pour le site gamekult avec une vidéo de 19 min. On peu voir les nouvelles animations en mouvement et ça à l'air sublime. Profitez bien

Spidey981 on :

C'est un vrai dessin animé interactif, j'en veux tellement plus. S'il vous plaît donnez nous une date de sortie très bientôt . ^_^

SEGAMER on :

You guys changed Monster Boy. I was one of the people who requested that he be changed to look more like Sega's Wonder Boy but he looks worse now. Please ask Lizardcube for help. Their un-used concept art would be perfect. It should look like this:

http://www.mediafire.com/view/4b8da9trnksr8i9/WonderBoy_Concept_Art%25282%2529.jpg/file

Junior lima on :

I think this is all great but guys have been making one huge mistake which is the release date. I dont really care about it , i will certainly buy it but you are holding this game for way too long, people not even have a release date by now which will actually make people forget about this game. Anyways, as i stated, i will certainly buy it but this game has been delayed long enough. Keep the good work up

LizardBoy on :

Remember guys, if you release the game the 25th september like the physicals copy it's not summer anymore. So hurry I waiting for you on the ps store.

ALFREDO on :

Hello Thomas I was wondering are you gonna have a game demo at gamescom this year? PS I love the game soundtrack

Zell on :

I really hope that. It should be easy to do anyway as the demo was available in selected locations previously.

FDG,Thomas on :

Hi Alfredo,

sure thing, we'll have the game with us for Gamescom this year!

Bruno on :

Can’t wait for the switch version.

Goati_ on :

Figured I'd post here.
I've been drooling all over the place (twitch, discord, twitter) about this game and in particular the legendary old-school OST team.
It's easily my most anticipated game of all time.
I preordered a physical copy with fast shipping from Italy, which was expensive, but I'd probably have to buy the game digitally as well so I can stream it on day one.

FDG,Thomas on :

Thank you very much for the kind words and for supporting us with your purchase, Goati!

Danjo McCraps on :

Looks amazing! I'll definitely be playing it all on my channel when it finally comes out... in a month or two...?

Spidey981 on :

Salut tout les Fans
Voici un lien d'une preview en français

http://www.sega-mag.com/E3+2018+++Preview+de+Monster+Boy+and+the+Cursed+Kingdom-news-10832.htm

A la fin de l'article il est mentionné: " la date exacte étant encore en attente de sa validation." Cela veut dire que Sony, Microsoft et Nintendo doivent s'accorder pour trouver une date de sortie. Je pense qu'elle devrait être " bientôt" annoncée.


Hi all Fans
Here is a link to a French preview

http://www.sega-mag.com/E3+2018++++Preview+de+Monster+Boy+and+the+Cursed+Kingdom-news-10832.htm

At the end of the article it says, "the exact date is still pending validation." This means that Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo must agree on a release date. I think it should be "soon" announced.

Zell on :

>.< I hope!

Zell on :

I have a feeling that it is not going to be before Aug 21st.

Spidey981 on :

Hi Zell, I agree with you, I think the game will come out after Gamescom

Spidey981 on :

Salut à tous . Sur Amazon la date de sortie est affichée pour le 28 août. Il y a encore quelques jours c'était encore le 23 septembre. Attention ce n'est pas encore officiel mais ça confirme une hypothèse qu'il sortira après la Gamescom


Hello everyone. On Amazon the release date is posted for August 28. A few days ago it was still September 23. Attention it is not yet official but it confirms a hypothesis that it will be released after the Gamescom

Zell on :

Interesting

Ianuzzo on :

That would be perfect !

Tonysan on :

Cool, j'ai vu un stage Shoot'em up !

Matthew Barrett on :

Thomas I NEED to talk to you I pre ordered a copy of monster boy and the cursed kingdom on PS4 from a site called videogamesplus.ca as the expected delivery date was supposed to be 30th June. Then very sadly and unfairly they delayed the release of the game last minute to August 28th. Now I am very confused why would they do that for I thought the game is officially finished now including art work, booklet and game disc? You promised us all it would be released this summer. So why are some sites saying August and others September as we know that September isn't summer anymore and why is it being released right near the end of summer when the games been ready for months now?

FDG, Thomas on :

Hi Matthew, thank you very much for your pre-order! Regarding the release date: all dates from online shops are placeholders, we didn't announce the exact release date yet.

Spidey981 on :

Salut à tous. Trois site marchand affichent une date de sortie pour le 28 août. Amazon, Gamestop et Videogamesplus c'est toujours pas officiel mais ça sent bon . ^_^

Hi, everybody. Three merchant sites have an August 28 release date. Amazon, Gamestop and Videogamesplus it's still not official but it smells good. ^_^

Zell on :

Thanks for sharing the info. ^_^

Spidey981 on :

You’re welcome

Matthew Barrett on :

Thomas well Amazon said that it will be released on August 28th this year it doesn't say anything about place holder date or anything. You did say it's been released this summer and August is almost the end of summer. So my question is if the game is completed why can't you release it now what is with the delay.???????

Spidey981 on :

Hello Thomas. I am a little surprised that three sites announce the same date which is August 28. A few days or weeks ago it was September 25 or even December 31. Now I'm willing to believe that they are placeholders, but admit that it's a little disturbing for us that Amazon and other sites post the same date.

Spidey981 on :

I think a lot of us are hoping it will come out on August 28 or maybe a little earlier.

Matthew Barrett on :

Well thomas did say later this summer so it has to be then guess we have to wait just a little longer (sigh)

ALFREDO on :

Hello everyone I just checked Amazon and theres A new release date of October 31, 2018 But I'm not worried I know that's just a placeholder

Spidey981 on :

Hello Alfredo! Thank for info .You're right it is a placeholder, but I really had hope for August 28. It gets hard not having news or a release date. It's already been a month since we saw the last trailer but since then nothing. I feel that it will be released at the very end of the summer on September 22nd. Please Thomas give us some info.

ALFREDO on :

I'm pretty sure will probably get info on released date at gamescom in august.

Matthew Barrett on :

This is what Tomas said not long ago Dear Monster Boy fans, friends and followers,

today is a very special day for the whole team! We can finally reveal a brand new trailer and it includes material of the final game! No work in progress, no placeholders - this is how the game will look like when you get your hands on it later this summer! Please enjoy:

Now October ISNT summer he needs to keep his word about summer. I don't at all understand what's up with these delays when the games been published and completed. Thomas explain to us what's going on.

Ianuzzo on :

I am one of the most impatient people in this world. But with games i'm not. You're going to frustrate yourself doing that.

Sure it would be great if the game comes out in August but the summer ends late September. So there's still time. If for some reason the game delays and releases december that's ok too.

I think they are doing a great job communicating to us and giving updates. If they choose to not further comment on the releasedate i'm sure they have a good reason for that. Nobody wants a rushed game.

I pre-ordered Paprium for the Mega-Drive many moons ago. People that don't know how that nightmare is going please google it. I'm not going mad about that either. It will come someday.

So yes, i need to just wait till Monster Boy comes out but i'm confident that when it does it's going to be AWESOME

Matthew Barrett on :

To ianuzzo what do you mean fdg entertainment don't want to rush it? Like I said the game is 100% completed and the trailer is out too. It's just very frustrating waiting patiently for the day to come it says it'll be out. Like videogamesplus.ca had it listed for June 30th now it's pushed back till August 28th. The only reason I could think of is because they want to draw more people into it and Gamescom so it'll sell much better. I personally think it's very sad how they aren't many action/rpg/platformers like this anymore. And you're right I did check on internet and last day of summer is September 22nd. Also Spyro trilogy remastered is being released then so maybe the two games will be competing against each other.

Ianuzzo on :

Matthew, what i meant was that FDG stated they showed us material from the final game in the trailer. So we're looking at how the game is when we get our hands on it. However that doesn't necessarily mean that the whole game is done. Also there are so many other things to consider for final release. Rushing things is usually not a good thing.

I'm not a developer so i can only imagine what all the other aspects could be. Maybe bugfixing etc. I do know something about releasing products to the market so just that the game itself would be ready doesn't mean that it's ready to release as a whole.

FDG didn't give us a firm releasedate just "later this summer" so if videogamesplus.ca decides to use the 30th of June as a releasedate that's not FDG's fault. It wasn't pushed back by them. It just means videogamesplus.ca had to change there placeholder date. I think Monster Boy was actually scheduled for release last year. They decided to be more ambitious in what they were creating and did not release it last year. I for one can only applaud to that because i think we are getting a far superior experience than if it was released last year.

Don't get me wrong i really want Monster Boy to come out soon. For me it's the top game coming to PS4 this year.

If the game is delayed to draw more people into the game on gamescon that would be totally understandable for me. They need to sell games to pay the bills. If they are succesfull with this game we can hope for more games in the future.

Olav Persson on :

This is looking incredible! Keep up the good (and im sure) hard work guys!

Will there be a physical version or is this DD only?

Will be preaching your game in the studio to have more folks give it a try when its out, we have a lot of old Wonder Boy fans so if this holds up in the end i bet it will go down a treat.

Xbox player on :

Hello ;-)
ll this is very interesting but FDG does not communicate and it is tiring to wait without knowing. Nobody knows if the game goes out in December or if it will go out well in August. With this rhythm we are not ready to see the game going out. There is any does game card on Xbl, psn and eShop and not pre-order possible while it is supposed to go out in August. To wait for the end of year is suicidal except the version Switch and at the beginning of 2019 also, there will be too much competition (competitors).

Zell on :

I have been wanting to play the next series since Wonder Boy in Monster World (JP: Wonder Boy V: Monster World III).

Waited for more than 20 years, I believe waiting for a couple of months is nothing whether the end of Sept or later this year.

Even though It was frustrating to wait for this game for more than a year since I have heard about this and no release date yet, I would only say one thing:

THANK YOU for providing this game. I almost have lost hope at one point in seeing the next series.

Spdey981 on :

Bonjour à toute l'équipe. Sur Amazon il est indiqué que le jeu sortira le 31 octobre. L'info est relayée sur Twitter et même par certains journalistes . Je suis vraiment inquiet et j'ai peur d'attendre encore plus. Pouvez-vous confirmez qu'il sortira cet été ? Au moins pour la version dématérialisée, je veux bien attendre la version physique fin octobre. Merci

Xbox player on :

Why you do not give any more piece of news of the game? You plan to cancel or to postpone the game? If yes, make him know in a communiqued fdg please. Yes or no ? The game out this summer or this winter ?
One respons please !

Xbox player on :

Et bien figurez-vous qu'un site traitant les sorties PS4 a publié la date de sortie au 31-août prochain et un site asiatique (hk), proposait le jeu en digital sur Nintendo Switch pour un poids de 4.88 giga et une sortie pour le 31 juillet prochain. C'est vraiment la cohue au niveau de sa fenêtre de lancement, c'est vraiment n'importe quoi quand on voit combien les marchands spéculent (par impatience?) et divergent concernant une date fixe, unanime et plausible.

Si vous pourriez être plus transparent sur ce qu'il se passe actuellement concernant son développement et sa sortie prévu initialement pour cet été mais dont certains indices laisse penser que vous rencontrez des problèmes interne mais dont nous ignorons la nature. Quelques choses à priori nous échappe et nous souhaiterions savoir si le jeu est toujours prévu pour cet été ?

Meta-critic et trueachievment quant à eux, ont tous deux tablés pour une sortie le 28 septembre prochain, ce qui place la sortie physique en automne.

Merci de répondre à nos inquiétudes,

Cordialement.

LizardBoy on :

Salut à tous,
Pour tous ceux qui en ont un peu ras le bol d'attendre "Monster Boy" et de ne pas avoir de nouvelles sur la date de sortie, je ne peux que vous conseillez le jeu "Aggelos" sorti il y a peu sur Steam. Le jeu est excellent, pas cher et tous les fan de la license "WonderBoy" s'y retrouveront.

Zell on :

Interesting. Looks a nice game. thanks for sharing.

Zell on :

I know it's frustrating to keep waiting for a game without a release date.

In my case, I do come here almost daily to see the news. However, sometimes its better to forget about it and play other games until this game is released.

whether they announce the release date or not, it's not going to make much of a difference rather than to decide to play another game if you have the extra time.

Spidey981 on :

Salut à tous. Des nouvelles captures d'écran en HD sur le kit press FDG issue du trailer. En attendant d'avoir des infos plus intéressantes

Hi, everybody. New screenshots in HD on the FDG press kit from the trailer. Until we get some more interesting information.

Hello les amis,
Pour ma part Je vous conseille "Shantae" pour passer les vacances...A+

FedZeBest20 on :

Bientôt fin juillet et toujours aucune date de sortie.
J'ai bien l'impression qu'on peut faire une croix sur une sortie cet été !
Ce jeu est en train de devenir une arlésienne... :-(

Spidey981 on :

Salut tout le monde. Une excellente nouvelle à été postée par FDG sur Twitter. La date de sortie sera annoncée le mois prochain, je suppose lors de la Gamescom, en bonus un aperçu des sticker et du manuel pour ceux qui ont précommandé. J'espère une sortie assez vite après l'annonce. Voici le lien

https://twitter.com/FDG_Games/status/1022023790228893702?s=19


Hey, everybody. Great news has been posted by FDG on Twitter. The release date will be announced next month, I suppose at Gamescom, as a bonus an overview of the stickers and the manual for those who pre-ordered. I hope to get out soon enough after the announcement. Here is the link

Cameron on :

The release date will be revealed in August! I'm so excited!! :-)

Rob on :

Blimey you're stringing this out. I thought the actual was in the summer... Now you're just giving us the release date?!?

Spidey981 on :

Salut à tous. Peut être une date de sortie. Sur le site Gamefragger un article est apparu le même jour que le tweet de FDG qui annonce l'édition de lancement. La source citée par le journaliste est FDG et la sortie est annoncée pour le 28 août. Attention rien d'officiel mais peut être une fuite involontaire. Voici le lien

https://gamefragger.com/multiplatform/platformers/check-out-this-awesome-launch-edition-package-for-monster-boy-and-the-cursed-kingdom-a10290

Hi, everybody. Maybe a release date. On the Gamefragger website an article appeared the same day as the FDG tweet announcing the launch edition. The source quoted by the journalist is FDG and the release is announced for August 28. Attention it's not official but can be an involuntary leak. Here is the link

Xbox player on :

Moi ce que je peine à comprendre, c'est cette frilosité à balancé la date de sortie à quelques jours de sa sortie officiel si cela est avérée. La communication est proche du néant, l'attente est horrible car vous laissez les participants du projet dans le brouillard le plus complet et c'est trèèés frustrant je dois dire ????.

En quoi cela pose un problème de uploader une fiche jeu sur le serveur de chaque constructeur pour pré-charger le jeu et ouvrir les pré-order même si le jeu sort dans une semaine ? C'est quoi vôtre problème au juste ?

Vous pouvez très bien le sortir aujourd'hui en démat et faire plaisir à la fan-base et confirmer la version boîte à une date ultérieur sachant qu'elle ne concerne pas l'Asie, l'Europe et l'Océanie alors pourquoi ne pas procéder ainsi ?Le développement est achevé, le déboguage et les cartouches + blue-ray sont prêts alors que se passe t-il ?Qu'attendez-vous donc? Le déluge ?

Vous souhaitez vous frotter à Red Dead Redemption 2, Hitman 2, Forza Horizon 4, Fall Out 76 et Mega-Man 11 à ce que je vois c'est ça ? Vous rendez vous compte du risque énorme que vous courrez à vouloir vous mesurez à ces grosses pointures du milieu en repoussant sans cesse la date de sortie d'un jeu fini? Le combat est perdu d'avance, les ventes seront fortement impactés alors que le mois d'août semble tout désigné pour un démarrage record niveau ventes. Les fans vous le prendront deux fois (digital dans un premier temps + version import usa) tandis qu'en septembre les gens reprennent le travail ou l'école + la concurrence comme obstacle vont nuire au chiffre de ventes.

Vous voilà prévenu !

(La gamescom c'est dans quinze jours, à la toute fin de l'été et nous y sommes presque. Je suis très déçu de cette attente interminable, vraiment ????????.il aurait mieux fallu ne rien dire alors que faire mijoter autant les joueurs day one).

MD on :

I can't believe this game STILL isn't out yet!
I just completed AGGELOS, another WBIML type game and it was sooooo excellent!
The playability was spot on and everything else was as well.
It's like a 2 person development team and they managed to get their game
out in a decent time period. Stuff like this just seems to drag and drag and drag!
The more "commercial" it is, the slower it goes.
I hope this game is worth the wait because it seems to me all we're doing is
waiting for things that do not matter. At first it was incessant graphics overhauling.
Then it because marketing related. These delays don't exist for many smaller
teams and this game, even though the teams are big, is still just a 2D platformer.

I'm starting to feel the game is never going to be able to live up to all this hype.
Every delay is hype. Every delay is telling customers "oh just wait and all this
time will make it worth it!" - Every delay means we expect the game to be even
that much better. It sure better be because it has been playable for months now
but we're being made to wait so marketing can get it's self together.
Then the consoles will be most important and PC users will be ignored as
well, even though the PC version is finished, it comes out last.
Too much politics and bureaucracy! All I'm saying is, this is alot to live up to.

Xbox player on :

C'était si dure de donner rendez-vous à Cologne pour plus d'infos sur Monster Boy concernant sa date de sortie et pour se forger un premier avis pad en main ?

Je ferais peut-être le déplacement et j'imagines que Spidey a raison concernant la date du mardi 28 août à moins qu'il s'agisse de août 2019 ^^ sinon moi je le vois bien sortir mardi 14 ou 21 août mais je sais que je rêve complètement vu la grandeur de la com autour de ce fabuleux remake qui mérite un franc succès mais j'aurais aimé quelques explications comme une absence de budget marketing pour promouvoir un jeu indépendant kickstarter alors la GC permet un minimum de visibilité si le stand est bien mis en évidence.

(Penser à uploader aussi une fiche jeu sur les serveurs des constructeurs en amont de sa sortie pour améliorer davantage sa visibilité).
Espérons que sa sortie ne soit pas prévu pour courant fin septembre ou début octobre sinon je ferais évidement l'impasse car j'aurais d'autres chats à fouetter =)

Salut à tous ! J'aimerais apporter quelques nouveaux éléments trouvé ici et là, j'ai bien peur que le jeu ne sort pas cet été, je m'explique. Suite à un tweet de FDG donc voici le message posté le 7 aout:

" So glad we spent over 4 years with our friends @GameAtelier to make #MonsterBoyGame. This game came a long way and we can’t wait to share it with y‘all! Monster Boy releases this year on #NintendoSwitch #PS4 and #XboxOne with #PC Version coming Early 2019."

" Si heureux que nous avons passé plus de 4 ans avec nos amis @GameAtelier pour faire #MonsterBoyGame. Ce jeu est venu de loin et nous sommes impatients de le partager avec vous tous ! Monster Boy sort cette année sur #NintendoSwitch #PS4 et #XboxOne avec la version #PC à venir Early 2019.".

Il est précisé que le jeu sortira cette année, et non cet été comme dans les anciens messages
J'ai donc posé cette question:
?
Is it still planned for this summer? Thank you
Est-il toujours prévu pour cet été ? Merci

Ce à quoi FDG répond: "Please stay tuned for the exact release date to be announced this month.
S'il vous plaît restez à l'écoute pour la date de sortie exacte annoncée ce mois-ci.
FDG ne répond pas franchement à ma question en me disant oui ou non s'il sort toujours cet été.

Autre point: De nombreux marchant web affichent une date de sortie au 31 octobre 2018, FDG se défend qu'il ne sagit que "d'espace réservé" en ce qui me concerne j'ai un peu de mal à y croire.

Dernier point: Sur le kit press FDG à cette adresse

http://press.fdg-entertainment.com/sheet.php?p=monster_boy

a l'endroit Release date: il est écrit tba 2018 autrement dit To Be Announced 2018, hors il y a encore une semaine ou deux il était clairement affiché summer 2018.

Je ne cherche absolument pas à dénigrer qui que ce soit, FDG ou Game Atelier et j'espère de tout coeur me tromper. Mais après une annonce en grande pompe le 9 février avec une jolie image de Jin et ses transformations et des belles boites PS4 et Switch où il est écris en gros et en rouge" THIS SUMMER" il serait dommage de repousser la sortie tant attendue, en ce qui me concerne je serais vraiment déçu d'attendre encore et encore, la pilule serait dure à avaler. Je rejoins ce qu'a dit Xbox Player, à le repousser en septembre/ octobre vous allez vous affronter aux mastodontes. Je souhaites plus que tout que votre jeu rencontre un succès largement mérité mais par pitié sortez le avant le 22 septembre.


Hi, everybody! I would like to bring some new elements found here and there, I'm afraid the game will not be released this summer, I explain myself. Following a tweet from FDG so here is the message posted on August 7th:

"So glad we spent over 4 years with our friends @GameAtelier to make #MonsterBoyGame. This game came a long way and we can't wait to share it with y'all! Monster Boy releases this year on #NintendoSwitch #PS4 and #XboxOne with #PC Version coming Early 2019."

It is specified that the game will be released this year, and not this summer as in the old messages
So I asked that question:
Is it still planned for this summer? Thank you

To which FDG replies: "Please stay tuned for the exact release date to be announced this month.
Please stay tuned for the exact release date announced this month.
FDG does not answer my question frankly by telling me yes or no if he is still going out this summer.

Another point: Many web merchants have a release date of October 31, 2018, FDG defends that it is only "reserved space" as far as I am concerned I have a little trouble believing it.

Last point: On the FDG press kit at this address

http://press.fdg-entertainment.com/sheet.php?p=monster_boy

Release date: it is written tba 2018 , except a week or two ago it was clearly displayed summer 2018.

I am absolutely not trying to denigrate anyone, FDG or Game Atelier and I hope with all my heart to be wrong. But after a big announcement on February 9 with a pretty image of Jin and his transformations and beautiful boxes PS4 and Switch where it is written in big and red" THIS SUMMER" it would be a shame to postpone the release so much waited, as far as I am concerned I would be really disappointed to wait again and again. I join what Xbox Player said, to push it back in September/October you will face each other at the mastodons. I wish more than anything that your game meets a success largely deserved but please release it before September 22.

Zell on :

I always wonder why anyone would ask for a release date for a game that is months away. I liked a quote from Mark mentioned regarding Dragon Quest IX release date.

"If they don’t say anything until they announce a release date, they’re keeping us in the dark.
If they give us updates before they know the date, they’re jerking us around.
If they give a date and have to change it, they’re needlessly delaying the game.
If they give a date manage to stick to it, any problems are because they rushed it out the door.

Cool. No matter what happens, I’ll have something to complain about!"

I totally agree with that. :-D

Matthew Barrett on :

By the sounds of things fdg entertainment will release this game in either September or October. My guess is they will announce the exact release date at either the start or end of Gamescom in late august

Spidey981 on :

Bonjour à tous. Peut être enfin une date officielle, sur la page de précommande de Monster Boy

http://monsterboy.com/preorder/

Lorsque vous cliquez sur les différents marchands, ils affichent tous le 30 ou 31 octobre mais sur VGP il été affiché le 28 août il y a encore quelques jours. Hors aujourd'hui plus aucune date sauf si vous passez une commande. J'ai essayé d'en faire une et au moment de payer, le site affiche la date d'expédition le 28 août . C'est peut être encore un " espace réservé" mais je dois avouer que j'ai bon espoir pour cette date.

Spidey981 on :

Salut tout les Monster fans.

Sur le site videogameplus.ca une mise à jour à été dévoilée pour la date de sortie fixée au 11 septembre . C'est peut être encore " un espace réservé" mais après tout ça serai logique. Ça sera toujours l'été et j'imagine bien une annonce officielle le 1 er jour de la Gamescom soit le 21 août, puis une sortie trois semaines après histoire de faire monter l'impatience. Voici le lien
