Shantae to Release on 3DS Virtual Console Early Summer

WayForward Technologies’ Matt Bozon has announced in a tweet that Shantae will be coming to 3DS Virtual Console mid-June, early July.

The game focuses on a young “half-genie” by the name of Shantae. Having been appointed as the Guardian Genie of a small fishing town, Shantae’s life is fairly quiet. That quickly changes when a gang of pirates, led by the sinister Risky Boots, attacks the town and steals a prototype steam engine from the town’s resident Relic Hunter, Mimic.
