Wayforward rating for "River City Girls" appears

What could this be?

What in the world is River City Girls? We don't know, but WayForward is working on it! The game was rated by the Aussie Classification Board, which always shows games as multiplatform, even if they're not. WayForward's track record with Nintendo platforms is extremely good, so hopefully whatever this is, it'll come the Switch's way.

WayForward reveals Shantae 5 for Switch


WayForward has confirmed a new Shantae title! Shantae 5 is in development for the Switch right now, and WayForward says it'll release later this year. The announcement came from Apple's Apple TV+ announcement earlier today, and their games trailer featured the tiniest snippet of gameplay. We can't even be sure it's from Shantae 5 at this point!

That's honestly all the info we have for right now, but that's all I need to get excited!

Thanks to Kolma for the heads up!

Limited Run Games' Shantae and the Pirate's Curse Classic Edition GBC throwback box is gorgeous

I missed out on getting a retail copy of the original Shantae on GBC because I was a STUPID, STUPID KID...but that's a different story altogether. At least some people will be able to relive those glory days with a throwback GBC box from the gang at Limited Run Games. Hell, this is worth another purchase of Shantae and the Pirate's Curse alone!
