Jason Clement posted a article in Industry NewsThe classic Data East game Windjammers has had a massive resurgence in popularity in recent years, thanks to Giant Bomb raising awareness of the title during their many gameplay livestreams (you can check out the story behind that in this Waypoint article). So much so, in fact, that publisher DotEmu decided to grab the rights to re-release the original game and even produce a full-blown sequel. And while Windjammers 2 was originally announced in August of last year, we're only just getting our first official look at the gameplay in today's new trailer. Featuring some fast-paced, frenzied disc-flying action, the footage also provides a glimpse at the new players, abilities, and the game's gorgeous, hand-drawn visuals and animations. Check out the new trailer below. Windjammers 2 doesn't have a release date just yet but the game is expected to release in 2019 on Nintendo Switch and PC. Source: Press Release
Jason Clement posted a article in Industry NewsDid you know that the beautifully hand-drawn retro-remake that is Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap is only a few weeks away from release? Time certainly flies! And publisher DotEmu has released a new trailer for the game, detailing a brand new feature: you can also play as the brand new Wonder Girl. It appears that this is more of a palette/character swap, if anything, given that Wonder Girl is shown to have the same skill set and no new special abilities of her own. But it's a welcome addition nonetheless for female players who want to play as a female hero. Developer Lizardcube mentions in a blog post that that's actually the reason behind them adding Wonder Girl, adding that "an 8 year old girl [sic] could be playing the game today, and we felt it was the right thing to do." In addition to the Wonder Girl news, the trailer once again showcases the previous announcement where you'll be able to swap between modern and retro visual styles while playing the game. Pretty nifty indeed! Check out the Wonder Boy and Wonder Girl Trailer below. Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap is slated for release on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One on April 18.
