ININ Games gives Wonder Boy collection a little nudge. An expanded digital version of this year’s compilation, called Wonder Boy Anniversary Collectionhits the eShop on January 26, 2023.

Now, if you’re a little confused, there are a few differences from the June 2022 collection – at least if you bought the standard edition. If you recall, Strictly Limited Games announced a physical-only version called ‘Anniversary collection‘, which contains 21 ports of six different Wonder Boy games. This physical-only release is now getting a digital release early next year, which means the now-out-of-print version won’t be the only way to play this complete collection of Wonder Boy games.

Here are the 21 games you’ll get in the Anniversary Collection:

It certainly makes us happy – when we reviewed the Wonder Boy collection earlier this yearwe were disappointed with the limited number of games in the collection, although all the games there are pretty darn good.
