With rumblings that Game Boy and Game Boy Color titles are headed to Switch soon, now's the perfect time to report on the fact that we're getting another new Game Boy title.
Bitmap Soft has teamed up with developer JJ Games to release Tales of Monsterland, a platform title that seems to take inspiration from Sega's Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap, which was remastered on Switch a few years back. In the game, the lead character can transform into four different beasts, each with its own powers and abilities.
You'll be able to order a physical copy of the game complete with instructions and box, but more exciting is the fact that a special 'Dark Edition' version is also being made available, which comes in special limited edition packaging and will only be available in 50 copies.
Preorders open on Saturday 11th September and will remain open for 6 weeks. Orders are expected to be shipped two weeks after then, according to Bitmap Soft.
Here's some PR on the game:
A village besieged by monsters, a mysterious tower and a broken rope bridge.
Save the village by uncovering the origin of these creatures. Run, jump and battle your way through a strange land, gaining powerful abilities to help you in your quest.
It’s non-stop action all the way to the end and then maybe, you can find your way home.
TALES OF MONSTERLAND is a brand new title that hearkens back to the golden age of platforming adventures. Explore an open world, discovering hidden items and areas.
· Presented in glorious green scale
· Four magical forms to unlock
· Find the hidden world!
· Suitable for all ages
· Featuring battery-less saving! No more lost saves or soldering irons.
Included in the package
· A professionally created glossy box
· A premium game cartridge with cartridge protector
· Full colour manual
The standard version of the game costs £40, while the Dark Edition is £70. If you're interested in picking up a copy of Tales of Monsterland, then head over to Bitmap Soft's site.
Tales of Monsterland joins the likes of Dragonborne, Planet Hop, Where Is My Body? and Infinity in the ranks of new games for Nintendo's vintage handheld, which originally launched back in 1989. One of the Game Boy's successors, the Game Boy Advance, is also getting its first commercial release in 13 years. You just can't keep this line of portables down!
Looks like a no brainier, great game with investment potential.
Honestly looks like a really fun time. Tempted by a physical copy as it’s a nice set
The screenshot with the old man reminds me of the barn world from Super Mario land 2, my first ever game :'-)
This game has a lot of Super Mario Land 2 Six Golden Coins resemblance. One of the best original gameboy games that i have played. I still have the original Cartridge. Was a small kid back back then end 90's, but the game left me some good kind moments that i still remember to this day.
Hopefully this game is a much fun to play as well.
Smh this fad is getting out of hand.
This looks neat honestly.
Hopefully it isn't too short a game.
Unless I missed something in the official page they don't offer to buy the rom as digital download? I want to play this game but I surely don't want to pay shipping, import and custom fees.
I've been following this since it started development. It's an awesome game! Really fun and worth the hype
@UglyCasanova A fad of making awesome games will never be a bad thing
