The Mystery of Wonder Boy

• May 3rd, 2017

Wonder Boy is one of those franchises that is probably better known in Europe than anywhere else.  It's odd to think that a Japanese-developed game that was given wide distribution find a home there of all places.  Fred and Jam delve into the development, crazy naming conventions, and evolution of one of the most versatile franchises ever.
