WONDER BOY: THE DRAGON’S TRAP – SWITCH FROM HD TO 8-BIT ANYTIME, ANYWHERE
PARIS – February, 24 2017 – DotEmu, developer and publisher specializing
in modern releases of beloved retro games, and Lizardcube, are thrilled to
reveal an exciting new feature in our Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap remake:
the “Retro” feature.
Whether you’re a purist touting the idea that “it was better in the old
days” or a futurist who digs 21st-century graphics and remastered
soundtracks, this enhanced version of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap
satisfies all persuasions. With the “Retro feature” you can switch in-game
from HD to 8-bit anytime, anywhere. If you have fond memories of piano key
neckties and talking Trans Ams, Retro lets you rewind the clock to a time
when just pressing a single button felt so good.
Nostalgists can load their last save from 1989 by entering the password
scribbled on their geometry homework, or join millennials in beginning an
adventure that defined an entire gaming generation.
Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap will be available this spring on PS4, Xbox
One, and Nintendo Switch.
