[Update: Trailer] DotEmu is teasing a Wonder Boy III remake called The Dragon's Trap, sadly not for mobile
What a wonderful boy
It looks absolutely beautiful in the game's first trailer but it's not mobile-bound it seems. Still, DotEmu has been making mobile games before so hopefully we'll see it one day:
DotEmu is no stranger to porting old arcade games. It excels at that and even rebooted Pang lately. It seems like it successfully gained the rights for another franchise as DotEmu just opened a new teaser website for Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Path.
Wonder Boy is a series owned by SEGA that goes all the way back to 1986 in Japan. It's an hardcore platformer that was deceivingly simple-looking but turned out a blast to play.
The art used in the promo might set the stage for a reboot and it seems like Lizardcube, a new Parisian developer that features talent from Media Molecule and who worked on the underrated DS' Soul Bubbles, will handle this one. There's currently a countdown on DotEmu's teaser website and we'll see what it's all about when it ends on Thursday.
Hopefully it'll come to mobile but DotEmu has yet to disappoint on that front.
