Sega Ages 2500 Vol. 29: Monster World Complete Collection

I am a big fan of Wonder Boy. Well, it’s actually Wonder Boy III: The Dragon’s Trap for Sega Master System that I’m a big fan of. This is one of the best game for the Master System and I still play it from time to time. I also have some of the other games, but haven’t been able to play them that much yet, but I will.

The great news is that all the Wonder Boy games is being released for the PS2 (goto Play-Asia.com) in Japan on the Sega Ages 2500 Vol. 29: Monster World Complete Collection compilation (this link goes to the Google translated page, here’s the link to the original Japanese page). From what I could read out of the translation, you get all the 6 Wonder Boy games (Japanese) + 10 other version (probably different console versions).

Here is the list of the 6 Wonder Boy games with Japanese names (Western names may be different):

  • Wonder Boy
  • Wonder Boy in Monster Land
  • Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair
  • Monster World II (aka Wonder Boy III: The Dragon’s Trap)
  • Wonder Boy V: Monster World III (aka Wonder Boy in Monster World)
  • Monster World IV

For more information about the games, go to Wikipedia.org and Hardcore gaming 101.

This a Japanese realese only, so you need a Japanese or modded PS2 to play it. The games is released on March 8 and can be ordered from Play-Asia.com.
