Remake (remaster) of the classic Sega game - One of the best Mastersystem games and a great follow up to the Arcade game

Quote:
Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap Sidescrolls Onto PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on April 18

DotEmu, developer and publisher specializing in modern releases of beloved retro games, and Lizardcube, are thrilled to announce that Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap will be available on April 18th for the PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch (and a few weeks after on PC).

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.

HOLY SHIT

I played the hell out of the original Master System game, absolutely loved it. Hope it's good.

Looks like it's a pretty much straight port then with a HD 'drawn' graphics option. Nice.

Think my kids will like this too.

The original was one of my favourite games, but I'm not a fan of those new style graphics. I'd probably end up playing it in the retro graphics mode. If I had a PS4 anyway.

This came out yesterday on everything and it looks fantastic.

Annoyingly I think it's £2 more expensive on the Switch.

Finished - normal playthrough timer at around 3 and a bit hours

Still need to do the special challenge rooms , and I'm missing a sword from somewhere so probably need to go back round the shops to pick it up.

Great music remixes of the original , the new cartoon graphics are amazing and the controls (on the PS4 anyway) are spot on

I really hope they do this for some of the other games
