The new trailer shows the various abilities of the main character’s six transformations. You can swap between the transformations you’ve unlocked at any time, which lets you beat the game in a variety of ways.

The game, which is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2016, will be playable at the Xbox booth at Gamescom this week.

Here’s an overview, via FDG Entertainment:

A legendary game series returns with an all-new adventure! Monster Boy is a colourful side-scrolling action adventure created in cooperation with Ryuichi Nishizawa, the creator of the Wonder Boy* Monster World* series (*Trademark of SEGA Corporation Japan). Monster Boy is being created to bring back the enjoyment of classic games that shine by simplicity. Pure, exciting gameplay; upbeat music and smooth graphics. You’ll need to overcome huge bosses, find hidden passages, discover powerful equipment and use all your wits and skills to remove a powerful curse.
