You read it right. Wonderboy: The Dragon’s Trap is getting a physical edition on the Nintendo Switch. It’s technically a Asian release so you won’t see it in stores in other areas. But you can pre-order it right now on PlayAsia.com and the game will be in English. The price of the game is $33.99 and can even use your paypal account to purchase it if desired.
There was a few weeks ago you might have heard the physical edition of Wonderboy: The Dragon’s Trap released on LimitedRunGames.com, but this was only for the PS4 version. A game like this (2D side scrolling) belongs on a Nintendo console. It only feels right to play it on a Nintendo console in a physical cartridge as well.
I have yet to play this new HD remake, but have loved these games on the Sega Master System. Which is perfect since this new HD remake release features a mode where you can instantly go back and forth between retro 8-bit style graphics of the game and modern/new designs. I used this feature religiously when playing Halo Combat Evolved the Anniversary Edition on my Xbox 360 years ago. In Halo with the press of a button you could see what it looked like originally back in 2001 or what it looks like present day with enhanced graphics.
