Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap Launches April 18

DotEmu has announced the release date for Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap.

The newly reimagined, Lizardcube-developed take on the classic series 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.”

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.

DotEmu also put out a tease that a “last surprise” is being revealed on March 22nd.
