Wonder Boy Anniversary Collection To Get Switch eShop Release Next Year

Picture: ININ Games

ININ Games is giving Wonder Boy Collection a little bit of a boost. An expanded digital release of this year’s compilation, called Wonder Boy Anniversary Collection, is coming to the eShop on 26th January 2023.

Now, if you’re a little bit confused, there are a fair few differences compared to June 2022’s Collection — at least if you bought the standard edition. If you remember, Strictly Limited Games announced a physical-only version called the ‘Anniversary Collection’, which contains 21 ports of six different Wonder Boy games. That physical-only version is now getting a digital release early next year, meaning that now sold out version won’t be the only way to play this complete collection of Wonder Boy games.

Here are all 21 games you’ll be getting in the Anniversary Collection:

This definitely makes us happy — when we reviewed the Wonder Boy Collection earlier this year, we were disappointed with the limited number of games in the collection, despite all of the games on there being pretty darn good.
