Dear Monster Boy fans, friends and followers,

We're very excited to hear back your opinions after you watched the trailer and hope that you like what you see. Will you join Jin on his quest to save Monster World Kingdom when the game releases on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 ?

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!! :-)

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:

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.

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.
