Wonder Boy dev Westone Bit Entertainment filing for bankruptcy

Long-standing Japanese developer Westone Bit Entertainment is reportedly facing bankruptcy.

An industry stalwart for almost three decades, Westone is best known as the creator of 1986 hit arcade side-scroller Wonder Boy, which was relaunched on the NES as Hudson’s Adventure Island, and the Monster World series, which was recently collated as Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World on the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2012.

But now it seems that the veteran firm is to disappear.

MCV has the full story.
