Developer Lizardcube’s remake of the Wonder Boy series got some great news today: Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap has officially gone gold on all console. Announced earlier today by Lizardcube’s Twitter account, the game is set and ready for its April 18 release date:
For those that don’t know, “gone gold” or “goes gold” comes from the term “gold master,” which is a version of the game deemed good enough to be shipped to store. So, when a game goes gold, it means development is done, and the game is ready to be sold.
As mentioned above, Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is a remake of the series originally developed by Escape on older SEGA systems. The series’ reboot first started making its rumblings in 2016, later announcing its release date for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The latest news for the remake is players will be able to play as a brand new protagonist — Wonder Girl — along with Wonder Boy in both 8-bit and standard art modes.
As mentioned above, Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap launches for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on April 18, 2017.
