Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse launch trailer ⊟

Thrill at the fast-paced action! Marvel at the beautiful graphics! Cringe at the trash talk! Wait until the 23rd to be able to buy it!

A European version is on the way “as soon as possible” with a Wii U release following in the winter. While you’re waiting, why not check out our exhaustive WayForward podcast?

Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse out October 23 ⊟

WayForward’s next Shantae game (not the Kickstarter one, the other one!) will be released on the 3DS eShop in North America on October 23, for $19.99. Concurrent with the announcement, WF released this video about the zombie RottyTops, who I like more than whatever other zombies because her name is RottyTops. The Walking Dead cannot match that feature.

For more cool WayForward stuff, check out our podcast interview about the company’s history! I’m actually really proud of it!

Super Hexagon, Ninja Gaiden, Spelunky composers on Adventure Time game soundtrack ⊟

Brave Wave Productions, whose work I’d write about even if they weren’t (full disclosure!) a Club Tiny supporter, is behind the soundtrack to WayForward’s new Adventure Time: Secret of the Nameless Kingdom. The Zelda-esque game for 3DS, Xbox 360, PS3, and PC has music from Chipzel (wow!) Ninja Gaiden composer Keiji Yamagishi (again, wow) and Spelunky’s Eirik Suhrke (yes, wow).

Speaking of Suhrke and Brave Wave, they put out a Spelunky remix EP featuring Manami Matsumae, Alex Mauer and more to celebrate the game’s release to PlayStation 4 yesterday.

TinyCast Gaiden 002 - WayForward Special

Tiny Cartridge • TinyCast

TinyCast! Kinda! I interviewed Voldi Way and Adam Tierney of WayForward Technologies, to learn all about the history of the company. From cereal-box Muppets to neurotic robot voices, I guarantee there is some WayForwardalia in here that you haven’t heard! I know I learned a lot about Ping Pals. I’ve been wistfully dreaming of a Ping Pals podcast for like a year, and it happened!

I must tell you: this podcast is a recording of a Skype call between the three of us, and I’m not an audio engineer, so the sound quality is not top notch. I think the interview is worth a listen anyway, but just FYI!

WayForward’s Xtreme Sports on 3DS VC 8/7 ⊟

Xtreme Sports, a deep cut from WayForward’s catalog, will be released on Virtual Console this Sunday. The company’s first Game Boy Color game was a sports game accompanying the Dreamcast/PC game Xtreme Sports (which was developed by a different company).

Players control either Fin or Guppi, and compete in a bunch of sporting events while also trying to defeat the Bone-heads gang who are I guess doing something evil (something something) extreme sports tournament?

I’ve never played this, but it sounds pretty interesting.

New Adventure Time game announced for 3DS ⊟
Developed once again by WayForward (published this time by Little Orbit instead of D3P), Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom will release for 3DS, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC/Steam this November. No Wii U or new-gen versions, as far as I can tell!
Unfortunately, this is not the online multiplayer version of Drop Ball we’ve all been clamoring for. Instead, it “introduces a classic top-down action adventure experience and puzzle-solving element to the franchise, reminiscent of early high fantasy console games.”
"Players take on the personas of both Finn and Jake as they navigate through the eponymous kingdom - a mysterious unexplored region in the Land of Ooo," Little Orbit adds. "They will discover hidden secrets by exploring all corners of a new kingdom created exclusively for the game and encounter never-seen-before characters and creatures."
Still unsure why they just don’t make Drop Ball — it’d be an automatic hit, and would take over the eSports scene.

WayForward’s canceled Silent Hill DS ⊟

Amazing! The same stream event that led to the first viewing of Shantae GBA also brought us this: an unfinished, unreleased Silent Hill game WayForward was working on for DS.

It’s just a tech demo starring Silent Hill 2’s James Sunderland, but it shows that WayForward originally had a much more traditional Silent Hill in mind than Book of Memories.

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.
