In June we got our first peek
at developer Lizardcube's complete re-imagining of the classic SEGA Master System game Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap
. In the first developer diary, we are able to see more of the game as the team travels to Kyoto, Japan to attend the BitSummit Festival. They also stopped for a visit with Ryuichi Nishizawa, creator of the original, who supported and endorsed their efforts to create a new version.
As Nishizawa played through Lizardcube's version, he complimented the hand-drawn graphics and ease of understanding. He also shared facts about creating the original and talked about the importance of the hidden doors that can be found throughout the world. There are also tidbits about the making of the soundtrack and some of the characters like the pig.Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap
