ININ Games Announces Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World Release Date

The Monster World 4 remake has a release date, but it's different depending on your platform.

ININ Games announced the Asha in Monster World release date not long after revealing the Monster World 4 remake in all its updated glory. Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World will release May 28, 2021, for PS4 and Switch and on June 29 for PC via Steam.

The digital PS4 and Switch versions will retail for $34.99 on PSN and the eShop. The Steam price is the same. However, digital versions will not include the original, non-remastered Monster World 4.

For that, you'll need one of the physical editions, of which there are three.

  • The Limited Edition is available for $39.99 and includes exclusive color manual & reversible box art.

  • The Collector’s Edition includes terrific items like the Monster World Map, 2x soundtrack (Original & Remix), Artbook, a Squishy Ball Pepelogoo and more ($99.99). 

  • The Mega Collector’s Edition celebrates the origins of the game and includes everything from the CE and even more fantastic items like the Asha and Pepelogoo Figurine (18cm / 7.1"), Asha Pixel Pin, a Vinyl Sticker for your console and more ($179.99).

Monster World 4 originally released in Japan in 1994 for the Mega Drive, though it didn't see a western release until much later. Though it was available on the Wii, Xbox 360, and PS3, this remake may be the first time fans of the series get to play it.


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
