The lights are on
Shantae: Risky's Revenge was one of DSiWare's obscure gems (the game has a Metacritic score of 85), and WayForward is promising a sequel, hopefully on the Wii U.
In an interview with Nintendojo.com at E3, WayForward's founder Voldi Way said that the company is working on a follow-up to Risky's Revenge. "I would expect to see it on, you know, Wii U," said Way, "I don’t want to commit to a time because it always gets – even though we have been working on it, you know, like I said – it gets pushed to the back burner, so originally we were hoping to have something for launch, but that’s clearly not going to happen."
Way didn't offer any details about whether it would be a retail or downloadable title, but it is in the works, so that's good news.

I do love myself a gypsy.
The sequel was really good. I'm glad that Wayforward is going to make more, I was just expecting it to be on the 3DS instead. Personally my favorite DSi ware game ever. For those who don't know what Shantae is, it's a 2D action-adventure side scrolling game. Think if it more of a Metroidvania style game and you get the right idea. I believe it's $10 on the eShop, but it is worth it. If you have a 3DS, Dsi, or DSi XL I highly recommend it.
YES!!!! I loved Risky's Revenge on, and I would highly recommend it. I'll be looking forward to the sequel
When I was a used car salesman, I found a GBC cart of this game under the passenger seat. It was actually kind of fun.
what would we do without her
HA! I remember this game!!
Cool. Now I HAVE to get around to playing the DSi Ware one...
What? It's good to have motivation.
Never heard of it.
This is a good thing.
