Lizardcube Announces Wonder Boy The Dragon’s Trap

After the exciting comeback of Monster Boy earlier this year, Lizardcube  and DotEmu announced that they would be remaking Wonderboy III: The Dragon’s Trap.



Wonder Boy III: The Dragon’s Trap is a Sega Master System classic that was released in 1989. The remake will make sure to bring back the familiar cute characters and a unique atmosphere while also providing modernized look with its sleek vector-styled visuals. This will be thanks to a collaboration with Ryuichi Nishizawa, the series creator.


The game has a very interesting premise that is very much like a fairy tail – the protagonist faces off against a powerful Meka-Dragon. After defeating him a curse was put onto our hero and he turns into a lizardman and must face off against an array of bosses each transforming you into a different creature!



Game Features:


  • A huge interconnected world!
  • 6 playable forms for our shape-shifting hero, with different abilities!
  • Dragons of all kinds! A Zombie Dragon! A Mummy Dragon! A Samurai Dragon!
  • An eye-patch wearing shop-keeper pig who may or may not provide a sense of warmth and direction!
  • Beautiful, hand-drawn animated graphics!
  • A memorable soundtrack, based on Shinichi Sakamoto’s originals, re-imagined and recorded with classical instruments!
  • …and more to be announced!


The game is planned to release on consoles and PC, but no details have been given yet.
