Active Boeki K.K., the distributor of Nintendo products in Southeast Asia and the Middle East, will be selling a physical version of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap in both regions. English, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean will be supported.
Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap will be sold for roughly $35. It’s going on sale beginning November 23. If retailers like Play-Asia take pre-orders, we’ll let you know.

Digital Foundry published yet another technical analysis today. With Rayman Legends Definitive Edition releasing on Switch today, the outlet has taken a look at how the game performs. There are some surprising finds here.
