New Trailer showing the adventure that awaits Asha & Pepelogoo

We are happy to announce the brand new trailer of Asha in Monster World showing unique characters, teamwork with Asha’s blue sidekick Pepelogoo and gimmick-filled stages.

The trailer is packed with lots of content. Whether you’re a longstanding fan of the series or discovering Monster World anew, we hope you sense the beginning of an exciting adventure. 

Developed by the original members of Westone Bit

The fully remastered version of Wonder Boy IV is led by none other than it’s creator, Ryuichi Nishizawa. Additionally, he is supported by Shinichi Sakamoto for new and improved music and sound effects, Maki Ōzora for character design and Takanori Kurihara as creative manager to create a worthy remake and new entry to the iconic series. 

Experience the dynamic duo Asha and Pepelogoo like never before

Asha is tasked to free the four spirits being confined by evil forces whose origin she discovers throughout her journey. Luckily, she does not have to face this adventure alone, as early on she finds her new companion, a special blue Pepelogoo. 

While the story remains true to the original game from 1994, the game is a full remake of Monster World IV, with cell-shaded 3D graphics and 2D gameplay that stays close to the beloved original gameplay as well as enhanced visuals and refined play content. Especially in the event scenes the performance is deepened and the world view is reproduced vividly and colorfully. Plus for the first time in the series, it comes with a character voice – by the popular and talented Japanese voice actress Ai Fairouz.
