A very interesting video showing how the animator had to respect the original game's timings as much as bringing a new layer to the animation.
This a complete remake of the original game Wonderboy III : the Dragon's Trap released back in 1989. One of its new key feature is the
possibility to switch at any time during the game beetween the new version and the original one.
