Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap

Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap came to Switch earlier this year as a digital title. A physical version was announced not too long ago, though only for Asia. Nicalis has since announced a partnership with DotEmu for a retail release of the game in North America.

The physical version of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap will ship in Q1 2018. It’ll be priced at $39.99.

For more information about the game, continue on below.

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 version 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.
