Shantae for Game Boy Color is headed to the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console next week, according to WayForward Technologies’ Matt Bozon. The game will be available on July 18th.
Shantae is confirmed for release in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, too, but doesn’t have a release date yet in those territories.
WayForward are also developing an original Shantae game for the 3DS, titled Shantae and the PIrate’s Curse. This is a Metroid-esque game with interconnected areas and gadgets that you find and upgrade along the way.
