The latest edition of Nintendo Power has confirmed that Wayforward’s classic Game Boy Colour title Shantae is heading to the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console. The platformer was released back in 2002 by Capcom and was met by universal acclaim. IGN gave Shantae a 9 out of 10, and called it a “wonderful platform adventure.”

    • The only reason you haven’t heard of it was it was released when the gba was out but on the GBC, so it never became too popular, but its a really good platformer.

  3. Cool, I just beat Risky’s Revenge some time last week, so it’ll be cool to play the original. Plus I understand they’re working on a Wii U sequel so that’s even better.
