We are proud to further expand its partnership with Nicalis, Inc. by announcing the upcoming physical release of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap for Nintendo Switch TM and PlayStationⓇ4 at major retailers in Europe as well as Australia/NZ. Headup Games and Nicalis are partnering with DotEmu for this retail release.
Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is a beautifully drawn and animated remake of the unforgettable Sega Master System game Wonder Boy III. Cursed and turned into a half-human, half-lizard monstrosity by the Meka Dragon, our hero will have to explore the many traps of Monster Land in order to find a cure. The game’s developer, Lizardcube, reverse-engineered the original game in order to faithfully replicate the character movements, item drop logic, secret door locations and much more.
“The Wonder Boy saga on the Sega Master System was my personal Zelda when I was a little kid, and being able to give Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap the full physical retail treatment it deserves fills me with great joy.” says Headup Games founder Dieter Schoeller. “We’ve hold the deepest respect for DotEmu and Nicalis, and are proud to collaborate with these two outstanding partners.”
The Switch and PS4™ versions of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap are presented in widescreen HD, with enhanced interface functions, a new playable character (Wonder Girl) and the option to toggle between the all-new hand-drawn visuals and the original graphics. The retail editions of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap are currently planned for release in the first quarter of 2018 with an MSRP of €39.99.
Sheeple's finally lost it! He is convinced that everything's just part of a giant videogame and that he was coded to simply be a side-character. Which is why he decided to recode himself to become the villain instead... Can you defeat his nefarious levels and come out of it unscathed? Good luck!
“The best 2D platforming game of the year so far is SLIME-SAN. Gross, fun & challenging.” That's right, Brian Altano from IGN, and that was only 2017. This year will be EVEN slimier!
Slime-san's second DLC Slime-san: Sheeple's Sequel is now available on Steam. Like the first DLC, this will be a FREE update to everyone who owns Slime-san, however, you can also individually purchase Sheeple's Sequel for only 4$!
In other news... Slime-san on the Nintendo Switch will soon receive its first DLC as well and the Xbox One & PS4 releases aren't far away either. Haven't checked out the manifold awarded Slime-san yet? Well, it's about time then!
Slime-san: Sheeple's Sequel is the second major DLC for Slime-san, the fourth major game developed by Fabraz. The three previous titles being Planet Diver, Cannon Crasha and Wild Wild Pixel. Slime-san is a game that is fun down to its very core. A silly story, with an unlikely character and gameplay that is addictively fast. It features hours of single-player content yet is tailored for speedrunners as well.
About the new DLC
The very core mechanics and level design lend themselves to be played competitively online. It is a visually unique adventure using a carefully crafted, 5 color palette world that is filled with fun and goofy Japanese references. It also has a soundtrack that is worth the price alone, featuring some of the most popular chiptune composers in the world! Published by Headup Games.
