Original Shantae hits eShop on June 20
A month from now, you’ll be able to buy cult Game Boy Color platformer Shantae — the first original property from WayForward, and the first release that got people to really start noticing the studio — on 3DS’s Virtual Console in North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
WayForward is putting out so much on the 3DS this year: this release, Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, Mighty Switch Force! 2, Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW!, and Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby In 8-Bit Land. I wouldn’t be surprised if we heard more announcements for 2013 either.
HOLY FLAMING FECAL PASTRIES
I decided to check out Super Mario Land for research purposes while working on my Marne Bros project. It’s one of the early Gameboy games, and it sort of shows. There’s a certain appeal to the simple readable graphics though.
Anyways, after having played the game for a bit I suddenly got the urge to see if I could do something with the sprites in Photoshop. Then I realized I could actually put the sprites in the game since the 2 bitplane tiles are pretty easy to read and write. Then I decided to redo the graphics for the entire game, so I spent a few days doing that.

It’s also probably the biggest wasted opportunity in video games.
It’s been pretty much entirely forgotten about now, because— as is pretty common with neat hardware made by Nintendo— very, VERY few…

Whoa I had forgotten how good this game is… now I’ll be playing it for weeks.
That’s not really a bad thing I guess…
