Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap goes retro

LizardCube has revealed a retro feature for Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap. With just a simple push on a button, anytime, anywhere in-game, you can switch from HD to 8-bit graphics. Moreover, if you happen to still have your Sega passcode from 1989, you will be able to load that last save. The game launches this Spring on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC.

I'll take one serving of HD graphics and some 8-bit sound to go with that please :)

The more I see and learn of this game, the more amazing it seems. Definitely a game to look forward to. And those 8 bit graphics made me remind of Sega Master System's Alex Kidd, which is never a bad thing - loved those games.

Well, it is a Master System game to begin with, so no surprise there :P

  • Melmoth
    Melmoth This is the closes (setting) i've seen to my old fav. Irem's Ninja Spirit that i've seen. Feudal japan mixed with From's superb bosses also makes me think about Madhouse's Ninja Scroll. (7 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth only played the first area (after the prologue), and it's more openworld-ish than the other From games. very vertical , and wider play area. (7 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @asdfg: The first miniboss felt like something they put in there to tell soulspeople that "don't play it like it's souls". i got whooped seriously when i tried to dodge the guy,. (7 Hours ago)
