United Games Entertainment secures the rights to publish the next entry in the world renowned and iconic Wonder Boy series, Wonder Boy – Asha in Monster World.
Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World – Development led by original creator
After recently securing the rights to the unreleased SEGA/Westone game Clockwork Aquario, the upcoming Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World is now the second license from the SEGA universe. United Games Entertainment has secured the rights for the release in the Western World for PlayStation4 and Nintendo Switch. Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World will be released under the ININ Games label.
In recent years, the remakes and sequels of Wonder Boy have become smash hits around the world. Several hundred thousand happy fans celebrated the return of Wonder Boy after the series was dormant for many years.
United Games Entertainment is very happy to expand the cooperation with SEGA, LAT and STUDIOARTDINK. Especially since the original staff from the former Westone Bit Entertainment gathered together to create this game to stay true to the spirit of the original games. The team is led, and directed, by the creator of the Wonder Boy series, Ryuichi Nishizawa and supported by Shinichi Sakamoto (sound), Maki Ōzora (character design) and Takanori Kurihara (creative management).
