    Wayforward Technologies' gorgeous looking platformer Shantae's Risky Revenge will dance its way to Nintendo's DSiWare download service on October 4, according to the dev's official newsletter. Ready the Nintendo Points![/p]

    Off topic: [​IMG] lol, I don't think your mom would like you saying shit. [​IMG] But quite frankly, I don;t give a damn, so you have fun. (I know him in RL in case anyone's confused)

    On topic: Never heard of Shantae, is it worth giving it an "acquiring"?

    Very much, so, yes. It's a very classic-oriented platformer that really makes wonderful use of the ol' Game Boy Color's capabilities.

    Sadly I never heard about this game, however a game from the Gameboy Color age getting a sequel?! That's respect!

    I just can't say the same for Jazz...its dead.

    You should limit your post to one sentence. I believe the last one was the only one worth keeping in your last post.

    Aww, only DSiWare? I only have a DSL and with the nearing 3DS I'm not sure I want to buy a DSi now...

    So presumably we'll get it in space year 2012 in Europe if previous DSiware games are anything to go by.

    They know there is demand for a WiiWare version, maybe they'll see how this version does first. If not then I just hope that DSiWare can be played on 3DS.

    Yeah, man. I will miss this one too. That being said, they deserve every sale they get. Seems like they've really taken their time with the game, and it will probably be one of the most ambitious downloadable games for the system.

    Damn.... If only Lameboy emulated the original Shantae without so much lag when going to menus and shit. [​IMG]
    If only that, so I could finish the first game.

    So, is it out already? [​IMG]
    I wouldn't be able to play it anyway without a DSi... but I'm also hoping it's working on the 3DS.
