‘Shantae’ Headed to the 3DS Virtual Console July 18th

After much uncertainty, Shantae will be released on the 3DS Virtual Console on July 18 in North America, as announced by WayForward Creative Director, Matt Bozon. The game is a port of the original Game Boy Color game, which received much praise upon its release in 2002 and went onto be a cult classic. The game has since spawned a DSiware sequel, Shantae: Risky’s Revenge, with a second sequel currently in development under the name Shantae and the Pirates.

No pricing has been revealed.
