Headup Games announced the release date of the upcoming physical box of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. The game will hit major retailers in Europe as well as Australia/NZ on April 19, 2018.
Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is a beautifully hand drawn and animated remake of the unforgettable Sega Master System game Wonder Boy III. Cursed and turned into a half-human, half-lizard monstrosity by the Meka Dragon, our hero will have to explore the many traps of Monster Land in order to find a cure. 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 and sound.
Get your hands on the retro-style manual, reminiscent of the SEGA era of gaming and grab your own adorable phone strap featuring the main character. Headup Games’ retail editions of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap will be in stores on April 19 2018 with an MSRP of €39.99.
