Launch Trailer for Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap

DotEmu and Lizardcube have shared the launch trailer for Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via DotEmu:

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 will launch on April 18th across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch. A PC (via Steam) release is coming “a few weeks after.”
