First look at Risky Boots' CharaGumin figurine

Risky Boots incoming!

Risky Boots was revealed as the winner of the CharaGumin figurine poll awhile back, and the company has been hard at work bringing that figurine to life. While we still don't have a release date for the figurine, we have finally gotten our first look at how things are coming alone. I think the figurine is looking pretty fantastic so far!

River City Girls rated for release on Switch

Hopefully we get a first look soon

The other day, a title called River City Girls was announced. The title is a collab between Arc System Works and WayForward, and aims to provide a unique take on the River City / Kunio-kun franchise. Now we know that game is going to head to Switch, as a new rating from the Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea confirms it. I guess we'll be seeing this one launch sooner than we thought!

Wayforward rating for "River City Girls" appears

What could this be?

What in the world is River City Girls? We don't know, but WayForward is working on it! The game was rated by the Aussie Classification Board, which always shows games as multiplatform, even if they're not. WayForward's track record with Nintendo platforms is extremely good, so hopefully whatever this is, it'll come the Switch's way.

WayForward reveals Shantae 5 for Switch


WayForward has confirmed a new Shantae title! Shantae 5 is in development for the Switch right now, and WayForward says it'll release later this year. The announcement came from Apple's Apple TV+ announcement earlier today, and their games trailer featured the tiniest snippet of gameplay. We can't even be sure it's from Shantae 5 at this point!

That's honestly all the info we have for right now, but that's all I need to get excited!

Thanks to Kolma for the heads up!

The Shantae series laid dormant for so many years, and then met with an explosion of new games and fans. I couldn't be more happy to see that happen. It all paved the way for great content like the package above!

Limited Run Games' Shantae and the Pirate's Curse Classic Edition GBC throwback box is gorgeous

I missed out on getting a retail copy of the original Shantae on GBC because I was a STUPID, STUPID KID...but that's a different story altogether. At least some people will be able to relive those glory days with a throwback GBC box from the gang at Limited Run Games. Hell, this is worth another purchase of Shantae and the Pirate's Curse alone!
