A month-long delay can't stop the sprightly half-genie lass

Good news, everyone!

The critically acclaimed Game Boy Color gem, Shantae, was originally scheduled to release on the 3DS Virtual Console on June 20, but unsuspecting technical hiccups delayed the launch until some time this month. Wait no more, because Shantae's daddy, Matt Bozon, has tweeted the new arrival date: next Thursday, July 18.

This is great for all of you who were never fortunate enough to pick up the cartridge when it was still widely available. I personally couldn't wait that long, so I popped in my physical copy and played through that. Yes, I am disgustingly fortunate. But still, good for you guys!
