WayForward announces imminent release for Shantae iOS

DSiWare sleeper coming to Apple devices before week's end

TODO alt text

WayForward has announced that the iOS version of its popular DSiWare title, Shantae: Risky's Revenge, will be available this week. In fact, it'll be ready for you to purchase and download and start playing in less than 24 short hours, if you so choose. Care for a trailer? Come on, it's right here already.

Having toiled in the licensee fields cranking out highly competent adaptations of others' IP, Shantae was WayForward's first original property. The Game Boy Color title garnered a cult following despite suffering from its host platform's increasing obsolescence (the game sat alongside Mario and Metal Gear on our list of top GBC titles). When the sequel, Shantae: Risky's Revenge, emerged for DSi, we only called it “the perfect platformer.” Now that WayForward has finished work on well-received licenses like Aliens: Infestation and Bloodrayne: Betrayal, it's finally had time to line up the iOS version of Risky's Revenge, which will be available tomorrow, Oct 27. Will you be giving it a go?
