Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is a game based on Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap. The game will release on September 25, 2018 for the PS4, November 6, 2018 for the Nintendo Switch, within the first quarter of 2019 for the PC, and on an unknown date for the Xbox One.
In January 2015, FDG Entertainment and Game Atelier announced the development of an official sequel titled Monster Boy and the Wizard of Booze. The development team includes Ryuichi Nishizawa, one of Wonder Boy's original developers, and a co-founder of Westone. The soundtrack was composed by Yuzo Koshiro, Motoi Sakuraba, Michiru Yamane, Keiki Kobayashi, Takeshi Yanagawa, and Haruka Shimotsuki. The developers chose the name Monster Boy due to Sega owning the rights to the name Wonder Boy. The game originally began development as an unrelated game called Flying Hamster II: Knight of the Golden Seed. In July 2015, the name of the game was changed to Cursed Kingdom after criticism of the original subtitle, Wizard of Booze.
