Its been a very long time since we have seen a Monster Boy game for any console but at some point in 2017 the series will return to the Nintendo Switch. The Monster Boy series was very popular back in the early 90’s for the Mega Drive and the Sega Genesis. Seeing the Monster Boy series come to the Nintendo Switch is something that many people who were fans of the series probably thought would never happen in a million years. The Monster Boy series was an exciting action adventure platform title back in the early 90’s and since then many people thought the series itself was dead. The last time we saw a major title in the Monster world series was around 1994 when Monster World IV was released in Japan for the Sega Genesis. Ever since Monster World IV was released exclusively in Japan we never got the chance to see a direct sequel throughout the 90’s or the 00’s.
In terms of games for the Nintendo Switch its good that Game Ateller and FDG Entertainment is bring back a Sega classic like the Monster World series back. As of right now the Nintendo Switch needs as many new games as it could possibly get since the console is brand new and desperately needs more games in order to make people want to buy the console itself. Even though, the platform genre of gaming is not the most popular genre right now there is a good chance that Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom will do well in terms of sales on the Nintendo Switch considering the fact that its a classic that will gain the attention of retro gamers who were fans of the series back in the early 90’s. Also, since platform titles are generally more popular on Nintendo based consoles opposed to Xbox and PlayStation consoles there is a fair chance that people who are unfamiliar with the Monster Boy series will become interested if the game is marketed the right way.
