Wonder Boy HD remake to receive physical release

The 8bit Sega era legend returns!

The physical version of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap has been released for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in the North American region and pre-orders are now available in Australia and New Zealand!

Wonder Boy rose to fame in the 80’s as the unofficial mascot of Sega in the Master System era. The HD remake on PS4 and Switch is a completely remade verion of the game with box art drawing design aspects from the original Sega Master System cart boxes.

Boasting beautiful, hand-drawn animations and a re-orchestrated soundtrack, the cult classic returns with a unique blend of exploration, action, and adventure!

Cursed into a half-human, half-lizard monstrosity by the Meka-Dragon, you are in search for a cure! The only way you can return to human form is to find the Salamander Cross, a magical item with the power to remove curses.

With each dragon slain, the curse intensifies, transforming you into different animals! Explore large, interconnected locations populated with grumpy monsters and exotic dragons!

Play as the game’s classic character, Hu-Man, or as his brand-new, long-awaited co-star Hu-Girl. You can also inhabit Lizard-Man, Mouse-Man, Piranha-Man, Lion-Man, and Hawk-Man, and use their unique abilities to uncover the land’s deepest secrets.

Enjoy 3 difficulty levels catering to players of all types, and switch from modern graphics and sound to 8-bit graphics/audio at any time – even during gameplay!
