* UnCanceled: ''[[VideoGame/MonsterBoyAndTheCursedKingdom Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom]]'' is due to be released in early 2016, over twenty years after the original release of ''VideoGame/MonsterWorldIV''. While it has a different name and a new developer, the creator of the original series is involved, and has acknowledged the project as a legitimate sequel. Shortly after its announcement, two more projects have popped up, this time with the original "Wonder Boy" title: a modern remake of ''VideoGame/WonderBoyIIITheDragonsTrap'' and a reimagining of the original installment called ''Wonder Boy Returns''.

Added DiffLines:

* GodDoesNotOwnThisWorld: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]. All that Sega owned during the series' stay on their systems was the names of the games, while Westone owned everything else. This allowed them to port or license the games for other systems. Now that Westone Bit Entertainment is no more, it's Ryuichi Nishizawa, the creator of the series, who seems to have retained the rights, which he used to promote a spiritual successor to a [[VideoGame/MonsterBoyAndTheCursedKingdom legitimate sequel]].


** DolledUpInstallment: In a reversal, in Brazil, the first three games in the "Monster World" sub-series were edited and modeled after the popular comic ''[[Pt/TurmaDaMonica Turma da Mônica]]'' (''MonicasGang'').
