Nintendo DS classic Monster Tale coming to modern consoles in 2021

The following information comes from a press release from Majesco, the publishers of the original game:

Developed by Dreamrift, Monster Tale left its mark by bringing a nostalgic feel and a vibrant world featuring the human monster duo of Ellie and Chomp.

Players in Monster Tale experience a seamless blend of classic gameplay styles of puzzle-platformers, Metroidvania, and pet management as they seek to rid the fantastic Monster World of the evil ragtag group the Kid-Kings. Working together Ellie and Chomp must learn new skills in order to return the world to the rightful hands of the monsters and help Ellie return home.

Monster Tale features a beautifully crafted world of 2D pixel artwork reminiscent of classic 90’s titles. As players explore the world as Ellie, they’ll unlock new abilities for her to use to overcome the obstacles she faces. They’ll also help to train her monster companion Chomp so that he can evolve and aid Ellie in their adventures.

I remember when this was coming to DS and I was so excited to read about it! That couldn't have been 10 years ago... Man we are getting old, aren't we?

I remember being excited for Final Fantasy Versus XIII at E3 2006... and then waiting 10 and a half years to play it. In the meantime I finished university, got married, had a kid, and was 3/4 of the way through a 2-year MBA.

So yeah... we're getting old XD

This game is great! Really good Metroidvania and good music. Glad it's getting a re-release.

Why not Henry Hatsworth? That's the better game.

Color me surprised. I recall them saying years back they were going to make a "deluxe" version for the 3DS that never materialized, so I kind of thought the game would be forgotten. I hope this new version does well. It really is a charming game.
