Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap

Limited Run Games today announced via Twitter plans to release a physical edition of DotEmu and Lizardcube’s Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap. The game, which released digitally last month on the PlayStation 4 and Switch, will be made available in both a standard and limited edition varieties.

As of the time of this writing, there are no concrete plans to release a physical version of the game on the Nintendo Switch. However, in our recent interview with the team, the game’s lead programmer, Omar Cornut, said they’re looking into the possibility of doing so eventually.
