A brand new trailer for Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom has landed, showing us exactly what we can expect to see when the game arrives on Switch this summer.

This colourful action-adventure game has been made alongside Ryuichi Nishizawa, creator of the original Wonder Boy in Monster World series on Sega platforms, borrowing the best aspects from that classic series to deliver a fresh, modern adventure. The game seems to be in high demand for Switch users, with recent data showing that pre-orders for the title on Nintendo's console were ten times higher than those on PS4 - a pretty hefty difference.

Can Jin save Monster World Kingdom? You'll be helping the young hero to defeat challenging enemies, discover hidden locations, upgrade powerful equipment, and lots more besides. You'll also unlock special forms with unique skills used to open new paths where mighty bosses and secret treasures await.

As mentioned above, Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom will arrive on Switch "this summer", with a physical release also coming exclusively to the US and Canada.

Now then, make sure to let us know if you're excited for the game in the comments below, and excuse us while we go around the office singing "Monster Boy, fighting for a future made of love and joy" for the rest of time.
