Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap

Nicalis has announced that it will publish a physical edition of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap for PlayStation 4 and Switch at major retailers across North America in Q1 2018 for $39.99.

Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is currently available digitally for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, Mac, and Linux.

Here’s an overview of the game, via Nicalis:

Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is a beautifully drawn and animated remake of the unforgettable Sega Master System game Wonder Boy III. It finds our hero cursed by a dragon, forced to live in the form of a Lizard-Man (and new additional forms) until he can break the curse by defeating all of the other dragons in the land. The game’s developer, Lizardcube, reverse-engineered the original game in order to faithfully replicate the character movements, item drop logic, secret door locations and much more.

The Switch and PS4 versions of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap are presented in widescreen HD, with enhanced interface functions, a new playable character (Wonder Girl) and the option to toggle between the all-new hand-drawn visuals and the original graphics.
