Nicalis releasing Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap physical edition February 13


Revamped classic gets first-run treats

Nicalis announced that the excellent remake of Sega Master System classic, Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap, will see a physical release on PS4 and Nintendo Switch in a matter of weeks.

The retro adventure, which sees Wonder Boy (or Girl) take on multiple anthropomorphic forms on a quest to defeat a deadly dragon, released digitally to fan praise in 2017. The physical edition of the game will launch in a fortnight, with first-run copies containing cool goodies in the form of an instruction book, soundtrack sampler and a PVC dongle of our hero's first form, Lizard-Man.

Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap physical edition will be released February 13 on PS4 and Nintendo Switch in North America. The digital version of the game is available worldwide on PS4, PC, Xbox One, Switch and Mac.

[Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that NIS America was handling this physical release. It's actually Nicalis, Inc. The post has been updated.]
