The Classic Adventure Reimagined For a New Generation

Stricken by a curse and transformed into a half-human/half-lizard by the Meka-Dragon, a lonesome adventurer is facing the challenge of a lifetime! In the search for a cure, our mutated anti-hero will explore the many traps of Monster Land and defeat many stuff-throwing, curse-wielding dragons. The six different forms of our shape-shifting hero—human, lizard, mouse, piranha, lion and hawk—make up just a small percentage of the cast of this non-stop action/adventure platformer!

Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is a beautifully drawn and animated remake of the unforgettable Sega Master System game Wonder Boy III. 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. Nicalis and DotEmu are teaming up to publish physical retail editions of the game for Switch and PS4.

This is the way to bring a classic back!
If you are into classic 2D platforming you are in for a treat.

It looks and plays amazing. Plus the option to switch to retro graphics and audio is just brilliant.

The Gold Standard for Remakes
This game is absolutely brilliant. A short, challenging game that does a great job at balancing the old gameplay with modern graphics and amenities. The hand-drawn graphics are a treat to look at, but with a press of a button at anytime you can return to the original 8-bit graphics. The music fits the different locales, the variety of characters you can transform into creates different playstyles, and the world allows and encourages exploration to discover the next path and all sorts of extras to discover. While the game is beatable in a few hours, shorter if you know where everything is, it's a game prime for repeat run-throughs and speed runs. The extras include by Nicalis, a full-color manual, a rubber key chain, and a sample soundtrack CD makes this a perfect game to own physically. Do yourself a favor and play the new standard for remakes of classic games.

Nice game.
As always Nicalis has provided Switch gamers with nice games,lovely booklet & additional goodies in most of its games. This is what most gamers & collectors like to see in their physical copy.
Keep up the good work Nicalis & thanks to Play-Asia for selling these nice & lovely games.
