User Summary and information sifted from モンスターワールドシリーズ"

The Wonder Boy series is a series of arcade games and conversions for home systems, developped by Westone Bit Entertainment and published by Sega. The numbering of the series has caused quite some confusion, as one of the games spawned another game series; several games are thus part of two series at the same time.

The "Wonder Boy" series consists of:

  • Wonder Boy (1986) – arcade action – ported to several 8-bit and 16-bit systems.
  • Wonder Boy in Monster Land (1987) – arcade action RPG – This was referred to as The Story of WonderBoy II in the end credits of the arcade, and was ported to several 8- and 16-bit systems, called "Monster World" on most Japanese ports. There was also a near-perfect PC Engine port called "Bikkuriman World".
  • Wonder Boy III Monster Lair (1988) – arcade action shooting – arcade and later PS2 ("Sega Ages").
  • Wonder Boy III: Dragon's Trap (1989) – Master System only, never released in Japan. In Japan, it's nonetheless known as "Monster World II Dragon's Trap."
  • Wonder Boy V – Monster World III (1991) – Megadrive/Genesis game (released 1993 for the Master System in Europe)

As there's confusion around the numbering, it's worth mentioning that there is no game officially numbered Wonder Boy IV, but there're two games numbered Wonder Boy III – the arcade game and the Master System game. Sometimes, the fourth Monster World game is erroneously numbered "Wonder Boy IV" or "Wonder Boy VI", both of which are incorrect – Monster World IV is not considered part of the Wonder Boy series.
