The Original Shantae is (Finally) Coming to the Nintendo eShop

WayForward has created some amazing franchises, but my personal favorite is Shantae.  Starring the titular half-genie known as Shantae, you serve as the guardian of Scuttle Town, protecting the townspeople from the female pirate Risky Boots.  The first game in the series, Shantae on Game Boy Color is a very tough find these days, often selling for over $100 online.  While you can already purchase its sequel, Shantae: Risky’s Revenge for DSiWare, WayForward has announced via Nintendo Power that the original is finally on its way to the Nintendo 3DS eShop.  While we still have to wait a few months to get our hands on the hair whipping adventure once again, be sure to stay tuned here for even more WayForward news.  Have you already played Shantae on GBC? -Greg Boe (admin)
