Dotemu has announced a 50% price cut for hit title Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap on Nintendo Switch.
The sale will kick off on May 16 in Europe via Nintendo eShop. It’ll end on May 22, 2018.
Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap launched in 2017 to rave reviews on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The remake is a breathtaking modernization of the 1989 Sega Master System cult classic featuring masterfully hand-drawn animation and an exquisitely re-orchestrated soundtrack. Developer Lizardcube’s faithful recreation of a journey of recovery from a curse preserves the original game’s sense of adventure, even retaining support for passwords from the original game and a retro feature that allows fans to play in the game’s original graphics.
With a new character, Wonder Girl, three difficulty settings, six playable transformations and the option to instantaneously swap between original 8-bit or modernized visuals and audio (or to mix assets from both eras), Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is the perfect chance to discover or return to this lighthearted adventure which captivated a generation.
