On the plus side, it’s being made by the folks behind that excellent Wonderboy 3 remake a few years back, so they do clearly have an appreciation for the classics.

I guess they could always pull out the Wonderboy trick of switching between pixel and cel art, although that’s going to be tougher for a game with all-new animation.
