Nicalis has announced that it is partnering with DotEmu to publish physical editions of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap for Nintendo Switch and PS4 at major retailers in North America.
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.
Nicalis’ retail editions of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap are currently planned for release in the first quarter of 2018 with a MSRP of $39.99.
