XBLA Monster World collection spotted

Classic Sega platformer returns next month.

It looks like Sega's classic Monster World platforming series is set for a return next month via an Xbox Live Arcade collection.

A listing for Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World, spotted by a NeoGAF poster, appeared on the Xbox Live Marketplace earlier today, stating a 25th April release.

The pack will include Wonder Boy in Monster Land, Wonder Boy in Monster World and the previously Japan-only Monster World 4. You'll apparently get leaderboards, achievements and new trial modes. See the screens below for a closer look.

No price tag is mentioned.

Wonder Boy in Monster Land was a 1987 Master System title, with Monster World following on Mega Drive in 1991 and Monster World 4 in 1994.
