Thanks to LizardCube and DotEMU for taking the time to answer all the questions and of course, thanks to the staff for putting together this amazing feature, excellent work it was wonderful to read.
I've never played the original serie but i'm tempted to give the remake a shot to support the devs.

Great new forum feature! This place gets better and better.

Love the developer’s dedication and work. I still need to pick the game up at some point for the Switch. Makes me wish they could remaster Monster World 4, but I can understand the desire to create original work.

This is fantastic to read, thanks. I'm looking forward to digging into the game next month when the physical switch version releases.

Awesome Q&A.

I'm extremely happy with the way the game turned out. The only thing I can think of to have improved it would be to have the game be more obvious with the Sega Master System origin of the game for newcomers. Fans of the original know where it came from but new people might just see it as an "8-bit remake". If they associate the game specifically with the SMS, then maybe they will pursue learning about other underrated games on the system.

Honestly turned out much better than I thought. It was really a fantastic read and I hope there's many more to come! Thanks to everyone involved in getting this to happen.

Really nice format.

I just absolutely adore this game. The art direction and OST are just phenomenal. I can’t wait to see if they will remake any more 8, or 16-but classics.

Such a fun and interesting read. Thank you interviewees and Q&ERA team!

Finding out about the hardships the LizardCube guys went through made me appreciate the game even more, haha.

This was incredibly well-done, and this is coming from someone who hadn't heard of the game prior to this interview. Very informative and extremely interesting! Thanks to all those involved and I hope to see more of these interviews in the future.

Great answers from some great questions.

Never knew there was a Brazilian specific version of Wonder Boy.
An insanely popular one. It was the second videogame I ever played, after Alex Kidd in Miracle World, haha :P

The company that dealt with bringing SEGA products to the Brazilian market since that time really knew what they were doing. They made multiple official romhacks that changed some games into products that were more palatable to the local audience.

Finally made it to read the first Q&ERA. One of the best, most insightful and honest interviews I've read in a long time. No non-sensical PR blah blah here. Awesome! Love the game when I played it initially on my Switch even though I've never played the original. Thanks to the ResetERA staff, Lizardcube and DotEMU for the awesome game and this great interview <3
