Alright, so I never had a chance to play this Game Boy Color game, but from what I hear, it's really good. Especially good considering it came out up against the GBA release.
It always seemed like it would be fun, and from what I understand, people have been wanting a sequel for ages.
Well, apparently, Shantae has a very good chance of seeing a new release on the WiiWare platform. For some reason, I'm very stoked about this, and actually want to play it. And if it feels like a Flash game, well, I'll have to be fair, and treat it like I treated Dishwasher, a game I'm giving a second chance.....
Anyway, back to Shantae. Siliconera found this out, so I'll just post the copy:
On my way out of this morning's GDC keynote I bumped into Voldi Way, the "tyrannical overlord" of WayForward. You may recall the company name from their work on Contra 4, but before meddeling with an alien war they had an original character named Shantae. Capcom published a single game starring the half-genie from Sequin Land on the Game Boy Color. A sequel has yet to matriculate.
Fans hoping for one might get their wish granted. Way explained they are looking at the Wii as the home for a new Shantae game. Afterwards I asked if they were considering WiiWare. Way replied, "that's the plan."
