Shantae on the 3DS Virtual Console? YES PLEASE

With the opening of the 3DS eShop just a couple weeks ago, we’ve already had a ton of speculation as to what games would actually be released in the Virtual Console section of the store. Perhaps one of the most sought-after games in this category is the original Shantae for the Game Boy Color.

Well, looks like we have a half-answer from developers WayForward themselves, as they’ve responded with an answer on their Facebook page. They’ve basically said there’s nothing set in stone, but they are definitely trying to get it re-released in the Virtual Console.

Shantae was an amazing platformer for the Game Boy Color, and still remains one of my absolute favorites. I’m glad to see that WayForward recognizes its popularity and continues to fight for their games. Hopefully we’ll hear some good news very very soon.
