Wonder Boy spiritual successor Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom has been shown off at this year's Gamescom, and it is looking sweet.

Developed by Atelier Games and published by FDG Entertainment, the title is being produced with the input of series creator Ryuichi Nishizawa and, along with Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap, is part of a very welcome (and long overdue) Wonder Boy renaissance.

And don't forget, Monster Boy has been confirmed for release on a Nintendo console, but FDG isn't able to say exactly which one yet - presumably because Nintendo itself hasn't yet officially shown off that particular console.
