Shantae wandering to WiiWare?

By Spencer . February 21, 2008 . 12:13pm

On my way out of this morning's GDC keynote I bumped into Voldi Way, the "tyrannical overlord" of WayForward. You may recall the company name from their work on Contra 4, but before meddeling with an alien war they had an original character named Shantae. Capcom published a single game starring the half-genie from Sequin Land on the Game Boy Color. A sequel has yet to matriculate.


Fans hoping for one might get their wish granted. Way explained they are looking at the Wii as the home for a new Shantae game. Afterwards I asked if they were considering WiiWare. Way replied, "that's the plan."

  • TacoBeaver

    this doesnt get my attantion at all, Crystal Chronicles looks better than this

  • Considering they’ve had a poll asking if the series should return on their site for a long time, this isn’t a surprise to me. Good choice on format though.

    How do you even know what Shantae would look like if there is nothing released about it? Are you commenting on the wrong story?

  • TacoBeaver is likely mistaking the concept art for an actual in-game screenshot.

  • TacoBeaver

    no, I read the story and this game looks like a direct FF ripoff… I steal have nightmares bout that emulator playing the game

  • tealovertoma

    Yes, this definitely is a comlete FF-ripoff. Apart from, you know, the entire game.

    What on earth on you basing this on?! What are you talking about?! Game on GBC looks nothing like Crystal Chronicles! I think you’re a troll…

  • FF? Christ, even just look at the character design lol. I can’t think of anything more different in every last way.

    Also, please consider XBLA too.
