    Well, I love the humor in the trailer and I recall playing this game for years on end on my crappy old Master system so I’ll be getting this just to fuel my nostalgia craze.

    • WBIII is one of THE best SMS games ever made. And it´s one of THE finest action/platform/adventure games in the history of games. So I´m picking up this one for sure :3

  • Edonus

    I am so happy the Wonder Boy series found its way to my hands. While other kids were deep in Super Mario I was playing Wonderboy in Monsterland. I was so happy when the Set became available on the 360 and even more happy when it became backward compat for the Xbox One. I will definitely pick this game up. I never got to play it when it was released because I had moved on to Genesis. This will be a real treat.

    • Very much so =) And I´m standing in line to play the early alpha build 😉 Oh? Well, my first console was the SEGA Master System. And when I got it (I was 4-5 years old), all of the Wonder Boy games were already available on the market. So I got to play them all =) Ah, I understand. Oh well, you will get your chance now 😉
