I can always go for more Shantae :) El Shaddai, nice, I played the demo but couldn't get a copy back in the day, I liked the art direction.

Is the Gargoyles game the Genesis game? I was a fan of the series, never played any Gargoyles games though, SNES only.

There were so many exciting things here for me. Shantae Advance, Double Shake getting a publisher, Tomba getting a rerelease (remaster?), and a flippin' GEX TRILOGY.

Spiritual sequel to Zelda CD-I games with some of the original voice cast is absolutely nuts.

I think this should be a top story, or at least some of the announcements should be (like Shantae and Clock Tower). Some real big reveals today.

I'm SO going to buy the ultimate version of the Castlevania Advance Collection even though I have no shelve space for it whatsoever.

I really think this should be a top story. This seemed like one of the most talked-about Nintendo-adjacent things in gaming on social media this week. Shantae GBA is a huge announcement, along with some big returns like Clock Tower and Tomba. And some stuff for ironic meme gamers like Gex and an unofficial Zelda CD-i sequel. Would love to hear you talk about this on the podcast.
