So, last August, Ryuichi Nishizawa, the creator of the Wonder Boy/Monster World series, was at Devcom as part of a panel on Monster Boy. There's an article about it on Game Watch, and at the end, it says this:
Finally, as a surprise, Ryuichi Nishizawa himself announced that he is preparing a new work of the "Monster World" series separately from this work. It's a reboot that doesn't just be a transplant or a remake, and the author may have been inspired by a series of overseas remakes and reboots. It is said that there will be a follow-up report in the next month. There's a lot of expectation for fans of the series.
So, it sounds like Nishizawa is planning to do a new Monster World game himself. Obviously, there doesn't seem to have been any news on it since then, though.
