We've been extensively covering the likes of Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap over the past few weeks, and it won't be long now until the game is live on the eShop. The charming platformer will be a reimagining of the Master System classic, featuring an eye catching new hand-drawn art style, while also paying homage to the original. It seems as though it'll be quite the treat and fortunately, it's just been announced that the game is good to go.

Lizard Cube recently posted on Twitter to let fans know that Wonder boy has officially gone gold on all announced platforms, so now the countdown begins until launch on April 18th. We'll be sure to share our thoughts on how it stacks up compared to the original in a review.

What do you think? Will you be picking this up for Switch? Did you play through the original? Drop us a comment in the section below.
