Monster World IV Headed to PSN, Xbox Live Arcade

If ever I pictured myself reporting on Monster World IV making its way to North America, I figured it would be a Wii Virtual Console story at best. But no, this is even better.

If the Monster World series doesn’t ring a bell, that’s ok. The combination of a relatively young readership mixed with those that didn’t follow Sega Genesis/Mega Drive games back in the day will do that. Rest assured, though, this is one worth anticipating.

Before importing the Playstation 2 port of the title I had only heard in passing how great this adventure-platformer is. It definitely holds up to its hype with boatloads of charm, and side-scrolling action that goes well beyond that of any other game in the Monster World series.

While importing it was a sound decision at the time, everyone else will be glad they waited. Especially because of one level that requires the player to answer a series of riddles to progress. Yea… that was an interesting hurdle to overcome. Hopefully the translation will be sound, and we’ll keep you posted when more concrete release dates surface.
