Earlier today, Lizardcube has revealed their new character to Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, Wonder Girl. The reveal came from this PS Blog post by Lizardcube’s co-founder Ben Fiquet. Here is what Ben had to say about the addition of Wonder Girl.
The Lizardcube and DotEmu teams loved the original game so much that we decided to team up and restore it, creating a new version with carefully crafted, hand-drawn 2D animations and a re-orchestrated soundtrack. Over the past few months we’ve showcased the various half-animal, playable characters, along with the popular Retro feature. But we haven’t yet revealed the new human hero design, and speculation has been rampant.
There’s a simple explanation for keeping the character’s identity a secret: we wanted it to be a surprise. But now it’s time for the grand unveiling.
Along with Wonder Boy in his classic form, you can now play as the totally awesome, totally radical Wonder Girl!
Concept art of Wonder Girl has been released by Lizardcube and DotEmu as well as concept art for the other charterers appearing in the game.
You can watch Wonder Girl journey along side Wonder Boy in this amazing new trailer.
Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap will be released for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on April 18th.
