I can’t get over these adorable animations
With less than a month to go, Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap developer Lizardcube has let out a nice surprise about its lovely Wonder Boy III remake: there’s an option to play as Wonder Girl! And that even extends to the 8-bit visuals, should you decide to switch back to the Sega Master System look.

There’s a simple explanation for keeping the character’s identity a secret: we wanted it to be a surprise.”
