lol, no.
Hopefully not a limited print run
Did someone really say no!

lol, no.


Why? Oh, the price. Yeah I guess it's a bit steep. Great game though. My love of the game blinded me to the price, oops.

On that original screen shot it looks like the WE5T 0NE cheat has been used

Bought this on Xbox One and found it to be very average at best. £29 really isn't a good price for it.
The upgraded graphics look decent. I loved this game as a kid. But the price is a Mickey take, when most HD enhanced/upgraded conversions are around the £6-10 mark.

We'd all be quite delighted to see physical Switch games at the £6-£10 mark, then reality sets in.

Used to love Wonderboy on my C64 many moons ago. Still got in the loft actually!
I have a £5 off a £30 spend for 365Games to use. Anyone know what I can add on for £1.01 (or a little more) ?
Wish I'd not bought the US version now
Loved the original but almost £30 wow
I'll buy this on the ps4 its half the price on the ps store

I payed £29.99 for the original! I don't have it anymore, at least I get a form of it again.
I have this on PS4. Pretty average game unfortunately. I was really looking forward to it, but I think Master System nostalgia got the better of me.

I wasn't overly impressed with it to be honest, and it's nothing to do with blurred nostalgia as I still play Wonder Boy in Monster World (Mega Drive) quite a bit.

It's probably worth it at its digital price, but not at this.

Still got the original somewhere. Loved my master system. Used to buy a lot of the games from a mail order company. Oh the joy of receiving Psycho Fox through the post early one morning

Granted that isn’t the price I expect for a physical copy, but this doesn’t really need to be a £29 physical copy in all honesty. It’s a digital download at best. A physical copy of this game, other than the original on the Master System, is worth nothing anyway.
Great find - thanks
A SMS copy is not even worth that much too be honest. If you want physical and your not fussy, then you get it now as a US or JP copy, JP deals have been available for a little over £20 recently.

Those saying is pricey, is fair enough, but it is a proper "classic" and personaly being a 8-bit Sega kid in another life, I was always getting this one, and would have grudgingly payed £40 if I had to, so could have been of worse.
Wonderboy ate up most of my pocket money down my local arcade as a kid (in the days 1 credit only cost 10p), will have to get Mame set up and take a trip down memory lane - I can still hear the game music in my head now 😜

I loved this remake, bought it on PS4 when it was released. Not sure I would pay £30 for a physical version.

This is the version when wonderboy was in a kids guise before 2 and 3? Where is the original wonderboy now, Classic game
Not played 3 but 2 was a classic on the sega master system. You had to answer a question after doing battle to defeat the mighty sphinx

That's what remote play and a ps vita are for. If I like the game. If not I'll play my switch
£29 for this? Jesus. It's like shooting fish in a barrel for Nintendo these days.

To be fair you could buy it for £18 digitally for your Switch if you want to play it on your travels.
Fantastic game.
Too much, Nintendo are taking the pi$$, bring on Xecuter jailbreak

Nintendo don't set the prices for third party games. So Nintendo are not taking the wee.

It's even less on PC, something like £9 ballpark cost approx, would play well on any laptop too. Or if cheapness is your thing just get a SMS emulator and original WB3 rom for free.

There is nothing quite like playing this stuff on the nations favourite console though, and
it is unquestionably the most unique and collectable version yet.

It's been on Steam for quite a while at £15. I actually have fond memories of this game hence it's on my wishlist. I still can't help feeling it's a bit of a harsh jump in price to a physical copy though.

I have the original and a Rom version of this.
I will be playing it on the nation's favourite console,the ps4. According to sale figures.
I'll stick to playing Zelda on my switch for now.

I think the limited run version for the PS4 is probably the most unique and collectible, especially love the reversible sleeve.
