"Wonder Boy" was an arcade hit back in 1986, with its intuitive controls and polished game balance. This forever famous sidescrolling action game has been remixed and reborn for the Nintendo Switch™! Join the adventure of a boy who's doing his best to save his girlfriend Tina -- updated with high-def anime-inspired visuals! A new feature called the "Charge Shot" has been added to this latest incarnation, allowing you to destroy enemies with a gigantic stone axe! We hope you'll enjoy "Wonder Boy Returns Remix," which has been not just faithfully reproduced, but in fact rearranged and greatly improved by Ryuichi Nishizawa.

Wonder Boy Returns Remix Critic Reviews


7 / 10

Minor additions put aside, Wonder Boy Returns Remix is nothing more than straight-up port of the original game, but with upgraded audio-visuals. Does that mean that it isn't good? No. This is just a word of caution for those who wanted something more, or expected a different take in the gameplay. As for the rest, if you don't mind something that doesn't stray far from its very old-school roots, this is the best way to experience one great blast from the past - and without the need to insert any coins.

As a huge Wonder Boy fan, I enjoyed Wonder Boy Returns Remix but it's definitely not a complete improvement over 2017's less than stellar offering.

Wonder Boy Returns Remix tries to keep its original game’s feel all while adding features to reconsider the new players delving into the game for the first time. For those returning players who wanted to reminisce the old days may feel a bit incomplete but the simplistic design of this game’s mechanic is proven to be welcome even after 30 years since the original release.
