It sounds like a good successor to the previous game, but what about the wii U Shantae?

I need to finish Play Risky's Revenge. It's been sitting on my DSiWare Folder, but I'm not going to do so until Shantae hits VC.

Same here, I lost my save file with like the 50% of the game completed when I transferred the game to my 3DS... I did not know that will happen.... So I started a new one but never complete the game, I am like 15% now T.T

Hopefully this fixes up the side-story with Rottytops and her brothers... I don't want to spoil anything, but... damn.

I have yet to play a Shantae game but I keep hearing a lot of good things. Guess its time to really sit down and play them.

see this is how you make a sequel not a "rehash" without completly abandonning the core gameplay of past game pay attention IS.

What's the difference between a sequel and direct sequel?

At first, I thought this was a rather big spoiler...

But I guess it's a major plot point of the game. It's not that Shantae is "no longer" a genie, it's that she temporarily lost her powers. There's a big difference.

This pleases me!

"It's not that Shantae is "no longer" a genie, it's that she temporarily lost her powers. There's a big difference."

No, the original statement is correct.

"Direct sequel" implies that there's no real time difference or major plot points between the two stories.

It's a fun series i had my doubts about risky's revenge but i gave it a chance and loved it.
Don't listen to anyone who says the series sucks,because imo this series is better then the mighty series and i like it more more then any other metriodvania barring sotn

Ok Wayforward.
I buy most of your games (especially liked Bloodrayne, Alien and MSF). I really like what you do and I think you're one of the best team out there. But still, I'm waiting for Shantae VC before actually playing Shantae 2.

Still this is awesome news. This is Wayforward's baby and I can't wait to see what they want to do with this sequel ^^

Well, I tend to enjoy Metroidvania games, a LOT.
Also, I tend not to listen to other peoples negative opinions and not cast my own until I've tried a game myself.

Hmm, well I guess I'll give it a shot if I see it going cheapish, its current price tag seems a bit much.
