I just picked up the Wonderboy collection on Xbox, and really enjoying Monster World IV.

I somehow thought that Dynastic Hero was a port of this game because of this:

http://pcengine.co.uk/HTML_Games/Dynastic_Hero.htm

says it is a port of "Sega Mega Drive Wonderboy IV"

Was that supposed to say it is a port of Wonderboy V, Monster World III?

Anyways - Monster World IV has been a blast so far, on the Moon world now. Anyone else get the Wonderboy Collection? Wish it had more from the series, but really  happy I picked that one up on Xbox.

Yeah, it's officially MWIII in Japan. I think that they stopped numbering ganes by "Wonderboy" with Monster Lair. In Japan WBIII Dragon's Trap was only released as "MWII".

The Game Gear version was released in Japan in 1992.
Funny thing is that both Adventure Island PCE and Wonder Boy V Monster World III were released in the same year in Japan, Adventure Island PCE being just 6 months prior. It was a hard series to follow in Japan.

Just released interview with Ryuichi Nishizawa creator of the Wonder Boy and Monster Land series. Very interesting as he shines light on the Hudson/Westone relationship.

I won't spoil anything so read for yourself:

Wonderboy 3 The Dragon's Trap is my favourite game, played both the PCE and SMS versions, I preferred the SMS version because I played that as a kid.

Oh. I missed this post.
Hell yeah. Wonderboy 3 is the most perfect game ever made. It's a shame it wasn't more widely played due to the SMS's lack of popularity in most countries.
It's no wonder it's the creator's favorite in the series!

kazekirifx I agree Wonderboy 3 The Dragon's Trap on SMS is by far the best game I've ever played on any platform

I think the Turbo version wins out because of its smoother scrolling.

It's technically superior (plus they fixed those broken heal potions), but you have to give the SMS version props for being the original. Reading the article also made me want to finally buy the Game Gear version.

Really?! That would be awesome.
There are so many great looking games from the 90's out there that were finished or nearly finished which were never released for whatever reason. There should be a website out there dedicated to these games and the goal of getting them released. A few Neo Geo protos have been released/unearthed in recent years. I'd love to see more of this.
...and Tengai Makyo III for PC-FX!
