Here’s the cancelled GBA Shantae ⊟

WayForward is doing a marathon streaming event as its Shantae kickstarter closes. One of the games the developer played on the stream was… the unreleased, unfinished Game Boy Advance Shantae game! The archived video above includes a surprising amount of gameplay. So cool! So unusually open.

I heard there was going to be more unreleased stuff shown, but I’m not sure if it’s been streamed yet. The stream runs until 10am PDT, basically right now!!! (when the kickstarter ends!)

..and WayForward’s whole eShop catalog! All you have to do is draw some Shantae fanart for this Crunchyroll contest. “Fan art includes, but is not limited to: drawings, sculptures, macaroni glitter art — as long as you can send it in as a JPEG format image.” You have until October 4. Keep it clean.
Speaking of, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero passed its Kickstarter goal this week, and has 10 days left to get additional funding!

Play Shantae at Giant Robot’s Game Night ⊟
In LA on my birthday (September 21)? Go to GR2 and play Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse and Wii U Mighty Switch Force 2, while you listen to a live performance by Virt! It’s a night of WayForward!
Speaking of Pirate’s Curse, Nintendo UK recently posted a developer interview video of the game with WayForward, which you can watch here.
Anyway, I have been jealous of literally every one of these Game Night events, you guys. Except for the one I went to… and I’m still jealous I didn’t get to stay very long.

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero now coming to Vita* ⊟
Pretty excited to have an official reason to post about this game on our handheld game site! It’s going to look nice on that screen. Or the Vita 2000’s other screen. Or the Vita TV’s your screen.
*if it gets funded!

New Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse trailer ⊟

Speaking of Shantae and its Kickstarter, WayForward is still releasing this for 3DS eShop this year! That pixelart! That tank boss fight! And oh my god, that music!

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero being Kickstarted ⊟

So I’m a full day late on this, but that’s life with babies. I still wanted to point out WayForward’s Kickstarter drive for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, a sequel to the GBA/DSiWare/etc. series due for Wii U, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Steam.

The early screens already look incredible, featuring background work by Gigi D.G. of Cucumber Quest fame (and artwork by WayForward’s reliably excellent artists!)

$15 or more will get you a copy of the game, but if you have an extra $10,000 kicking around, you can attend a wrap party for the project and receive a sealed copy of the first Shantae

Big week for cool Kickstarters! It’s weird to think that a WayForward Kickstarter and a Kickstarter for a “Mighty” game happened within days of each other, but WayForward didn’t make the “Mighty” one.

Early Shantae art, in honor of the 3DS VC release

Nintendo UK posted a gallery of Matt Bozon’s old notebooks, with original art predating the Game Boy game, to celebrate the upcoming North American/EU Virtual Console release, which takes place… July 18! I hope. It’s already seen at least one delay, after all.

I’m really looking forward to this one! Better sell your Game Boy copy now before the price plummets. I’m looking forward to that, too.

Original Shantae hits eShop on June 20

A month from now, you’ll be able to buy cult Game Boy Color platformer Shantae — the first original property from WayForward, and the first release that got people to really start noticing the studio — on 3DS’s Virtual Console in North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.

WayForward is putting out so much on the 3DS this year: this release, Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, Mighty Switch Force! 2, Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW!, and Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby In 8-Bit Land. I wouldn’t be surprised if we heard more announcements for 2013 either.

Shantae on 3DS Virtual Console in late June
Wayforward has announced plans to re-release the original GBC Shantae on 3DS Virtual Console in “the tail end of June.” You might need a break from Animal Crossing by then…!
I never got to play this. Like everyone else, I was all about Castlevania and Super Dodge Ball on GBA when Capcom put this out on Game Boy Color. Totally looking forward to this opportunity!

Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, a new sequel coming to 3DS eShop from WayForward. There are more screenshots on this Nintendo Power preview page – I only included one in this post because I don’t want to be stealing from poor old Nintendo Power so close to its end. So go look at the preview page! Better yet, go buy the whole magazine!
The newsstand edition of the November issue has a Wii U roundup cover, of course, but subscribers get Shantae! Yes, an eShop game on the cover of a major magazine in November, right in the middle of holiday release season, and during the launch of a new console. Very impressive!
