Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap

We have a lot of old school gamers here so I figured I would make a thread about this outstanding remake of a forgotten classic, Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap.

Lizardcube is a huge fan of Wonder Boy, so bringing the classic to current platforms was a passion project for the studio, and they knocked it out of the park. Firstly, the game is beautiful, beaming with personality everywhere. The slight changes that were made like the game auto saving instead of requiring passwords just makes the experience better without taking anything away from the original game.

It's $19.99 (xb1/ps4/Switch), so a little steep for a remake for a 30 year old game. But so much care was taken, I don't think the price is all that bad.

I haven't bought it yet, but a while back I watched a video on Metal Jesus Rocks' YouTube channel where he interviewed the developers while they played it. This was before the game was released, but was nearly done. The amount of work they put into it is pretty amazing.

Finished my normal run at 100% in about 5 hours last night. The only things I needed to look up were how to access the final dungeon and 4 of the gem locations which would have taken forever otherwise.

The amount of love and effort that went into this remake is staggering. I also think the length is perfect for this type of game. Any longer in the 10+ hour mark and it might have gotten tedious since the game requires lots of backtracking and a good memory.

Is a 5 hour game worth the $20? In this case 100% yes. The devs deserve it.

Wonderboy III was easily one of my favorite Master System games. I hope this ends up on a retail release one day since I almost never purchase downloadable console games.

Is this related to Wonder Boy in Monster World? One of my all time favorite side scrollers.

I believe Monster World is the next game after Wonderboy III. I've never played Monster World, but Dragon's Trap is really awesome.

It's getting a physical release on Play Asia. I'm not sure if it's an exclusive to them, or it's just a Japanese release... but it's only for the PS4. I know the Xbox One has print run requirements. I'm not exactly sure what the number is, but for example... you can publish a physical copy of a PS4 game and print 2,000 copies, Sony doesn't care. With Microsoft you need to do at least like 50,000, or they won't allow it. I'm not sure Nintendo's stance, but it might be similar since the physical version is PS4 only so far.

:Edit: Ok, the Monster World remaster will be getting a release in North America for the PS4. The release just hasn't been announced just yet. The developers said they are trying to figure out how to do a Switch physical release, but aren't sure they can do it.

Limited Run Games has been dropping hints that they might be publishing Dragon Trap here in the states.

Hopefully they are able to do a Switch and PS4 version.
