Here’s an overview of the game, along with a trailer:
The original Shantae is back and coming to the Nintendo Switch eShop on April 22! Initially launched in 2002, Shantae is the acclaimed action-adventure-platformer that is often considered one of the most impressive Game Boy Color games ever produced. In this pixel-perfect adaptation, Shantae hair-whips, dances, and transforms as she seeks out four elemental stones throughout Sequin Land to put a stop to the nefarious lady pirate, Risky Boots!
Note that Shantae will initially be sold digitally for Switch, Limited Run Games will be producing a physical release later on. Stay tuned for further information.
