History

This stands as the first time Monster World IV has been officially translated into English (unofficial translations exist), but not the first official release in English speaking territories - the Japanese version of the game was previously released for the Gametap service. This translation was rumoured to appear on the Wii's Virtual Console service too. It was also the first time the arcade version of Wonder Boy in Monster Land was released outside Japan (Europe received a Master System port and several home computer ports; the US received two computer ports). According to an interview with Westone's Ryuichi Nishizawa[7] , the English Monster Land was a shelved release from 1987, while the English Monster World IV was made specifically for the Virtual Console release.
