Shantae coming to 3DS Virtual Console

The well-loved Shantae, a Game Boy Color classic, is planned for release on the Nintendo 3DS’s Virtual Console “soon”.

Shantae is a platformer developed by WayForward Technologies, which was released in North America in 2002. In the role of the half-genie Shantae, players journey through Sequin Land to challenge Risky Boots and his gang of pirates and thwart their evil plans. The games sequel Shantae: Risky’s Revenge was released in 2010 via DSiWare to critical acclaim – however the title was not released in Australia or New Zealand for unknown reasons.

Shantae is currently being rated by the ESRB, and upon its classification Nintendo will determine the release date for North America. There is no word on a PAL release at this stage.

Double Dragon: Neon coming to PSN and XBLA

WayForward Technologies, creator of Shantae and developer of many great 2D titles of recent years including A Boy and His Blob (Wii) and Contra 4 (NDS), is partnering with Majesco to bring us Double Dragon: Neon.

The high-definition 2D update of the classic side-scrolling brawler is an 80’s style reboot featuring a familiar mix of martial arts and weapon-based combat. “The gameplay is the same brand of 2D side-scrolling popularized by the original game several decades ago, albeit with even more of a wild, 80s flair” says IGN.

Players will reprise their roles as Billy and Jimmy Lee to fight the villainous Skullmageddon and rescue love-interest Marian.

Double Dragon: Neon is scheduled for a July release on both PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.
