Game Profile - Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap on Nintendo Switch

Cursed into a half-human, half-lizard monstrosity by the Meka-Dragon, a lonesome adventurer is facing the challenge of a lifetime! In search for a cure, our mutated anti-hero will explore the many traps of Monster Land ... and defeat many stuff-throwing, curse-wielding dragons. How many more transformations can one hopeful body survive as it turns into a Lizard, a Mouse, a Piranha, a Lion, and a Hawk... The six different forms of our shape-shifting hero make up the cast of this non-stop action-adventure platformer!

Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap is a modern version of Westone Bit Entertainment's cult classic platform-action game Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap. This re-imagining of Wonder Boy was made with the benediction of Shinji Fujiwara and the cooperation of legendary series creator Ryuichi Nishizawa.
