  1. Inti Creates may have had a hand in the development of last year's critically lambasted Mighty No. 9, but the studio is firing on all cylinders this year with the the positive reception from Blaster Master Zero and the recently released Mighty Gunvolt Burst. That momentum kept going yesterday as they announced at Anime Expo 2017 that Shovel Knight and Shantae would be coming to Blaster Master Zero as DLC EX characters very soon; both of which fundamentally change up the game in pretty notable ways. Shovel Knight effectively acts as a melee character with a similar moveset to that of his own game, using his shovel as an attack and also being able to bounce off enemies with a downward thrust when he jumps. Similarly, Shantae also has pretty much the same classic moveset from her own games, which is attacking with her hair and magic as well as transforming into animals with special skills. Inti Creates is offering both characters for free when each debuts, but will then charge $1.99 for each when the free period ends. The period for when you can download them for free is as follows: EX Character: Shantae – 7/6/2017~7/19/2017 EX Character: Shovel Knight – 8/3/2017~8/16/2017 And as if that isn't enough for you, Inti Creates also teased that this isn't the end of new updates for Master Blaster Zero. More info on what's next for the game will be announced in the coming weeks and months. Could more DLC characters be in the works? Or will they add more game modes? We'll have to wait and see. Meanwhile, check out the trailer for Shovel Knight and Shantae in Master Blaster Zero below. Source: Inti Creates Are you excited for Shovel Knight and Shantae? Are you planning to play through the game as them?
  2. Next week 3DS owners will get to experience the long-awaited sequel to 2010's Shantae: Risky's Revenge with the release of WayForward's Shantae and the Pirate's Curse when it releases on the eShop. After the events of Risky's Revenge, Pirate's Curse sees Shantae teaming up with her nemesis Risky in order to save Sequin Land from a deadly curse, but whether she can trust her is another question. Players can also look forward to brand new weapons, tools, monsters, and more to experience throughout. While the game is also slated for release on Wii U, WayForward has mentioned that that specific release will come at a later point. And of course, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero (which will be available on a large number of platforms) is still on the way as well though more will be announced about its release at a later point. Shantae and the Pirate's Curse sails to the 3DS eShop on October 23rd for $19.99. Source: WayForward Are you excited for this Shantae sequel?

    Review: Shantae

    Developer: WayForward Technologies Publisher: WayForward Technologies Platform: 3DS eShop Release Date: July 18, 2013 ESRB: E for Everyone A woman“s hair is something that she can be very proud of – so why not use it as a weapon? Okay, that seems a little weird, but Shantae is much more than that and has some history to it. Late in the Game Boy Color“s life, the eponymous half-genie girl made her debut. Unfortunately, it was a quiet one and Shantae did not receive another game until 2010. With Shantae having gained popularity with Risky“s Revenge, fans wanted to play her original game. It took some time, but WayForward finally made it available for download on the 3DS. Was it worth the wait? Has this platformer aged well at all? Trouble starts immediately for Shantae in the little fishing village of Scuttle Town. Risky Boots, the lady-pirate, is tearing the town apart in search of a treasure! It is Shantae“s ultimate goal to catch Risky Boots and get that treasure back before it“s used for nefarious purposes. How“s a simple half-genie supposed to do that? She whips her hair back and forth. Duh. It“s not the best way of destroying enemies, though (you“re better off avoiding enemies and running away from them). Her hair attack has incredibly limited reach. Enemies are also merciless and tend to spawn on top of you. Because of this, an already difficult game becomes even harder. Thankfully, money is easy to make in this game if you abuse the Dance Parlor. Thus, you“re able to buy the equipment that gives you access to special moves sooner rather than later. You can also use your newfound riches to buy health vials and whatnot to make things a little more manageable. Eventually, you“re able to transform into different animals such as a monkey and harpy. It“s a neat concept, and cute to see Shantae in these different forms as well, but it quickly becomes stale and tedious. Dancing to transform every time you need to climb? No, thanks. These animal forms are used, of course, to solve many of Shantae“s puzzles and navigate around dungeons. While challenging in a good way, dungeons can become confusing with the lack of an in-game map. Sure, these areas are no walk in the park. They are truly a test of skill for seasoned platformer enthusiasts, though! Although the gameplay could be a bit better, Shantae is nonetheless wrapped into a nice little package thanks to its graphics and music. As a Game Boy Color game, it“s beautiful, colorful, and high-quality. The animation is also very smooth. The music is just as good with catchy tunes everywhere you go in Shantae. For $5, you can“t go wrong with adding Shantae to your digital download collection on your 3DS. It“s an absolute steal compared to how much you“d have to pay for a physical copy nowadays anyway! Shantae is a great game to play to this day and definitely deserves a chance if you“re interested. Pros: + Some of the best graphics and music you“ll find from the GBC days + Challenging platforming and puzzles Cons: - Enemies are frustrating and unfair - Easy to get lost Overall Score: 7.5 (out of 10) Good Shantae is a platformer that has aged pretty well thanks to its graphics and soundtrack, even if the gameplay may need some fixing up.

    Nintendo Download: Featured Games 7/18/13

    Another Thursday, another Nintendo Download update; however, this week's update isn't just any old update. You might have heard that a little game called Earthbound was released on the Wii U eShop today. Fans have been waiting for the cult RPG to hit the VC ever since the service was announced with the Wii, but the game famously never appeared on it until now. In addition, the WayForward's GBC platformer classic Shantae finally makes its way to the 3DS eShop along with the next installment in Level-5's Guild 02 series, Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale. Check out the full list of games below- Wii U eShop Earthbound (SNES VC) The Smurfs 2 (available 7/23) 3DS eShop Shantae Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale Robot Rescue 3D Undead Bowling (Full game and Demo) The "DENPA" Men 2: Beyond the Waves Demo DSiware No new titles Sales Puddle (Wii U eShop) - $4.49 until 9am PT on Aug 1
  8. It was almost two years ago that WayForward expressed their interest in bringing the original Shantae for Game Boy Color onto the 3DS's Virtual Console service. Since then, they've remained pretty quiet about it. Thankfully, Matt Bozon of WayForward has given us an update after so long! You can view the tweet below: Hopefully it includes the GBA enhanced features and brings down the price of physical cartridges! The third game in the series, Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, will also be releasing for 3DS sometime this year. Will you get Shantae when it comes onto the 3DS Virtual Console?
