The original Shantae on Game Boy Color, from WayForward Technologies, arrives on the North American 3DS Virtual Console service on July 18.
The series’ first journey takes players across the stretches of Sequin Land in search of a mysterious steam engine. Using the engine, players can unravel an evil plan that’s been formulated by a gang of plundering pirates.
Shantae originally released on June 2, 2002, exclusively in North American. Players take on the role of the young half-genie heroine herself, known none other than Shantae.
