Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap goes retro

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

About the game

    KORNdog @Moonwalker: disappointing. I thought they'd have at least announced something, either a replacement for the loss lf crackdown, or something next new for 2018. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker exclusive, just timed. Jurassic Park building game announced, third party....no new exclusives or anything. (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: It wasn't a conference, it was basically like one of those daily E3 shows. Recore DE announced, free for Recore owners, Quantum Break gets 4K Patch, MS publishing PUBG but it's not (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog Anything good announced? New games for instance? (6 Hours ago)

    KORNdog @HR2: wait. That happened? Man, i didn't even realise ot was gamescom yet, let alone their conference. Lol (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker That Project Scorpio Xbox One X edition is out of stock at Amazon Germany and USA, and look on Ebay....disgusting. (6 Hours ago)
  • HR2
    HR2 Microsoft's Gamescom show sure was a snooze fest. somebody needs to remind them what the word "premier" means. they re-used E3 trailers for EVERY game. I felt offended as a viewer, not even as a gamer (7 Hours ago)
