June 4, 2016Written by Zarmena Khan

Publisher DotEmu has announced its collaboration with French developer Lizardcube to release a remake of the 1989 SEGA and Westone classic, Wonder Boy III: The Dragon’s Trap. We’re told that the series creator, Ryuichi Nishizawa, is also on board. 

The reveal trailer above comes with the following description:

Cursed into a half-human, half-lizard monstrosity by the Meka-Dragon, a lonesome adventurer is facing the challenge of a lifetime! In search for a cure, our mutated anti-hero will explore the many traps of Monster Land… and defeat many stuff-throwing, curse-wielding dragons.

How many more transformations can one hopeful body survive as it turns into a Lizard, a Mouse, a Piranha, a Lion, and a Hawk… The six different forms of our shape-shifting hero make up the cast of this non-stop action-adventure platformer!

Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap will include the following features:

  • A huge interconnected world!
  • 6 playable forms for our shape-shifting hero, with different abilities!
  • Dragons of all kinds! A Zombie Dragon! A Mummy Dragon! A Samurai Dragon!
  • An eye-patch wearing shop-keeper pig who may or may not provide a sense of warmth and direction!
  • Beautiful, hand-drawn animated graphics!
  • A memorable soundtrack, based on Shinichi Sakamoto’s originals, re-imagined and recorded with classical instruments!
  • …and more to be announced!

A release window and specific platforms are yet to be announced.
