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.
