First Shantae figure to be sold at Anime Expo 2017
Posted on 2 weeks ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News | 10 Comments | 0 Likes
WayForward recently unveiled the very first figure featuring Shantae. Unfortunately, its availability could possibly be limited.
WayForward’s Matt Bozon put out a message yesterday confirming that the figure will be sold at Anime Expo 2017. Quantities are also expected to be limited.
Now… what if you’re not attending Anime Expo? Bozon says it’ll be up to distributor Volks to sell it online through its store. If the Shantae figure sells well at Anime Expo, more units could potentially be produced.
The Mummy Demastered also planned for Wii U at retail, could get physical release on Switch
Universal Brand Development and WayForward revealed The Mummy Demastered yesterday. Oddly, even though Switch was the only announced Nintendo platform, it appears to be slated for Wii U as well.
WayForward told one fan on Twitter that The Mummy Demastered will be distributed as a retail release on Wii U. Switch could also get a physical version, but that’s yet to be confirmed. WayForward will share more news in the future.
There's a physical US for Wii U, PS4 and PSVita. However we are in talks for retail release on the Switch. Will announce when we know more
