GUYS, GUYS, SHANTAE'S GETTING A SEQUEL, HAVE YOU H-

.....

.....oh. Seven-ish years too late? Embarassed

Heh heh, yet I wonder, what *was* the constitution of the Shantae fanbase, then. Stands to reason that they'd (we'd?) be scattered across the 'Net, yet perhaps there was a bastion of fandom somewhere? Anybody know? O: Just wonderin' as we sit & await further news on Shantae 3. ^^

I don't imagine there was much an organized fanbase for Shantae anywhere before Risky's Revenge. Most of what I see from back then amount to random bits of fan art of Shantae from artists wanting a sequel. Twisted Evil It'd be great if somebody who's been around the fanbase since the GBC release could comment on this.

Also, convenient you're waiting for news about Pirate's Curse, because WayForward posted something exciting just minutes ago!

Heh heh heh, yup, timing indeed~ X3 SEE, this is why I posted that: to spur WF to action! Laughing

Mmm, regarding what it could entail - I'd prefer game details to a release date, by this point. I've already accepted that the game shall debut later than anticipated. Juicy details would be groovy to learn indeed~ 83

Also, is that comment of yours on their FB a photograph of /your/ Game Boy Color? XD If so, WELL PLAYED, sir. -salute-

How'd you know it was me? Razz It's not a photo of my Gameboy Color, (Mine's transparent purple, and it's gone unused for years without many decent games to play on it.) but I saw the meme before and knew it'd come in handy to save for later.

I know! More details would be nice, but it's also great they're not revealing everything either. I spoiled nearly everything for myself about Brawl through the Smash Bros Dojo before release, and it was no wonder the game couldn't surprise me like Melee did, so it was less fun.

I knew 'twas you since "Jonathan S. Cheathem" be plastered upon your dA profile. Kitty Face Heh heh.

Anyway, news indeed! O.O The game shall also release on Wii U with HD artwork (retaining the pixel sprites).

Details: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2014/06/exclusive_shantae_and_the_pirates_curse_is_also_coming_to_wii_u

Since I don't own a Wii U, nor do I plan to purchase one, I'll stick to the 3DS release. Nonetheless, this oughta be a solid addition to the Wii U's repertoire. ^^

I'm very glad to see not only a new trailer, but one loaded with game play footage. It's like getting rain in Death Valley! I swear I saw the Dancer outfit from the iOS edition of Risky's Revenge in there too, and that makes me happy.

Seeing the WiiU logo at the end got me extra excited too. Lovestruck It's great that the game will be fully playable on the big screen. I think I'd still get the 3DS version myself for portability's sake, but that's amazing having as an option.

Oh yeah, I keep my real name up on my dA, I forgot. Twisted Evil I like feeling real and approachable, even with my fun side showing in my nick and avatar.

At this point, I'm wondering if there's some kind of conspiracy in Nintendo and/or WayForward that keeps Shantae games from getting any timely release.

EDIT: Release date is now set for October 23th. We'll see if WayForward can actually stick to it this time.

Finally, a possible release by the end of this month? I was starting to worry that actual pirates had cursed the source code Playful Wink

Between this and Smash Bros, I can definitely see myself getting a Wii U in the near future

*If the narrator is supposed to be Shantae's voice, I'm not feeling it. Sounds too ditzy for someone who's supposed to be a fairly-serious but optimistic adventurer.

*So, RottyTops was a Japanese schoolgirl before she died... typical WayForward, as juvenile in their humor as ever.

I was quick to repost the news on Tumblr as soon as WayForward posted it on Twitter, but it slipped my mind to mention it on the forums too. Thanks for posting it here, Maetch.

Regardless, Rotty is as morbidly adorable as ever. It'll be interesting to see how the events they're showing in Pirate's Curse play a role in the overall story.

Her new voice caught me by surprise too, but Cristina honestly sounds great to me. We'll see how well her voice fits the half-genie hero once the game's released.
