I'm feeling really good about this game

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse is looking pretty awesome so far, and this official trailer does it plenty of favors. Along with its new HD Kickstarter, WayForward really is putting a lot of eggs in this franchise's basket.

The 3DS is just piling on the amazing old-school experiences, and with the original Shantae on the Virtual Console and the sequel on DSi already, you can get all the Shantae action you could possibly want.
