Get ready to head back to Monster Land (again) with this impending The Dragon’s Trap physical release.
The remake of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap has only been out a couple of weeks, and already we’re talking about what comes next. But then, when a game was such a resounding success as this, it pays to make hay while the sun shines.
It’s no real surprise then, that Limited Run Games – purveyors of limited edition physical releases of previously digital-only titles – have today announced The Dragon’s Trap physical release on Twitter.

Sadly the cover art doesn’t appear to feature the retro grid stylings of the original Master System release – that would make the elder statesmen of Thumbsticks immeasurably happy – but it’s still lovely to see such a charming game get the full physical treatment.
The Dragon’s Trap physical release has no firm release date yet, but is scheduled to land sometime in Summer 2017.
Questions have also been asked of DotEmu and Lizardcube about a separate release of that glorious soundtrack. There are, of course, some licensing issues – when are there not licensing issues? – but the team have said they are working on bringing the original soundtrack to light. Some day.
