Long lost S18 game from Wonderboy creator is to be announced shortly for modern consoles, released by StrictlyLimited.

I wonder if they’ve compiled the game to run on original hardware/ROMs or if they’ve bastardised/modernised it for the Switch?

Would be super cool if this was able to be played on the forthcoming Multi!
Interesting but the article is full of errors.
No you don't need the sound ROMs to compile the main CPU code and no you don't need any 68000 hacks to get it to work without sound and no even in 2020 there are still plenty of people with 68k assembler knowledge.

[EDIT]
Hold on, the article is from 2017.

Well I just got the email from Strictly Limited announcing it officially, though they don't give a release date.

I was dialing back on my imported Switch games, but this might be interesting enough to pick up...

Here's the Press Release, which says they managed to find some of the original team to create missing assets (graphics and sound): https://www.gamasutra.com/view/pressreleases/364214/Clockwork_Aquario.php

Photos of the game look nice and colourful!

The first round sold out fast, especially for Switch. If you want it, it would be a good idea to be ready and waiting when it goes live. It didn't sell as quickly as an LRG release but definitely faster than SLG usually does
