Shantae hits 3DS Virtual Console next week

Thursday, 11th July 2013 06:17 GMT By Brenna Hillier

WayForward Technologies’ original Shantae game finally makes the leap to 3DS next week.

“This just in – Shantae (3DS Virtual Console) will arrive in North America next week on July 18,” WayForward’s Matt Bozon announced on Twitter.

The 2002 Game Boy Colour classic was expected in June but was delayed at the last minute.

Shantae was followed by a sequel, Shantae: Risky’s Revenge, which released on DSiWare before porting to iOS. A third entry in the series, Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, is coming to Wii U.

Thanks, Destructoid.

    Has this series ever appeared on non-Nintendo and iOS platforms? Because I really want to try it but only have access to PC (Steam), PS3 and 360.

    Thanks. Really hope they change their stance one day (I know the Game Boy one might be impossible but the newer ones could really shine on PC).

    I’m gonna grab this as I really enjoyed the DS game.

    Note to Brenna – I think the new game – Pirates Curse – is coming out for 3DS, not Wii U…
