Today, publisher DotEmu and developer Lizardcube released the launch trailer for Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, which is poised to roll out tomorrow on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, and then on PC in “a few weeks.”

For those that don’t know: Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is a remake of the 1989 Sega Master System game Wonder Boy III: The Dragon’s Trap. Here’s an official overview of the game via DotEmu:

A good curse makes a good game (or so they say)! turned 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!

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!
  • Play as the game’s classic character, Hu-Man, or as his brand-new, long-awaited co-star Hu-Girl.
  • Switch from modern graphics and sound to 8-bit graphics/audio at any time – even during gameplay!
  • Enjoy 3 difficulty levels catering to players of all types!
