Actually, what Wii Virtual Console got the day you posted was Wonder Boy in Monster Land (Arcade) and Monster World IV (Mega Drive), and Monster World IV never had an official English translation. This game is Wonder Boy in Monster World and actually was released in the US and was already available on Wii Virtual Console. By the way, from what I understand, this game also came out on Turbografx CD, but with changed sprites and CD music and is called The Dynastic Hero, which is also available on Wii Virtual Console! All of these games are totally playing (although Monster Land is pretty old and feels like it).
No doubt! I had to look at Wikipedia to make sure I was right before posting :) By the way, if you've never tried it, I highly recommend "Dragon's Curse" for Turbografx-16, which is an excellent game with an excellent soundtrack. Dragon's Curse is a port of Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap, but with improved graphics and sound.
I'm tempted to get this but....I've never been able to beat the last boss :(. Over 5 years of trying and a no go. Had to youtube the ending. Still a great game...might give this another shot and see if I can earn my ending.
