If you’re looking for a bit of a nostalgia hit, Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap has been given a release date from publisher DotEmu. The action-platformer is a remake of the 1989 game Wonder Boy III, originally released for the Sega Master System.
From the press release:
Boasting beautiful, hand-drawn animations and a re-orchestrated soundtrack, the cult classic returns with a unique blend of exploration, action, and adventure. Play as Lizard-Man, Mouse-Man, Piranha-Man, Lion-Man, and Hawk-Man, and use their unique abilities to uncover the land’s deepest secrets. Switch in real-time between the original retro graphics and the visually stunning modern remake, and input your old Sega Master System passcode to unlock all of your old saves and progression – just how you left them in 1989.
Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap launches on April 18 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch. The PC version is slated for an autumn release. We’ll update this article if the New Zealand release date differs.
