Developer Game Atelier and publisher FDG Entertainment released a new short gameplay video and a ton of new screenshots for the Nintendo Switch version of Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom. The trailer displays the game’s starting beach area, while also showing off a few of the different playable characters.

The developers also revealed that Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom will be playable at Gamescom, which takes place next week in Cologne, Germany. The game will be present in Nintendo’s booth, and features the game’s completely reworked graphics and full beach area that will be present in the final game.

For those who don’t know, Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom was announced for the Nintendo Switch back in mid-January. The developers also gauged interest for a physical Switch version in March, though nothing has been heard about that since. Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is a new platformer/adventure game in the Wonder Boy in Monster World series, and should last players around ten hours.
