New Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap Trailer Shows Off Retro Features

When Grim Fandango and Day of the Tentacle received remastered versions, Double Fine decided to include a rather nifty addition and allow players to switch between the new and original graphics at the push of a button, and even allow for cutomizable audio and user interfaces in the case of the latter. And now DotEmu and developers Lizardcube are taking a similar approach to their remastered version of the Master System cult classic, Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap. As seen in the new trailer below, players will be able to switch between their preferred choices of HD and 8-bit graphics and music whenever they want.

In addition to that, though, Lizardcube has gone the extra mile and will allow players to use the original passwords from the 1989 version in order to jump to whatever point in the game they wish. So between these options, the astonishing hand-drawn graphics, and the classic gameplay, it’s looking like Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is shaping up to be one of the year’s best comebacks, so make sure not to miss out on the game when it comes out for the Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One this Spring.
