Shantae sure has come a long way since her Game Boy Color debut. That title came out 18+ years ago, and plenty of fans remember it fondly. There's also millions more who haven't played it! Perhaps now would be a perfect time to remake/remaster that title.
Siliconera asked WayForward's Matt Bozon this very question, and it does seem that the company has some interest in the idea.
That’s been a hot topic lately! I’d be down for doing that! Of course, we’re all very excited to make new games, too. We’ll need to think long and hard about what the next Shantae adventure will be–but a remake isn’t outside the realm of possibility!
A fresh coat of paint and some quality-of-life improvements could make the perfect reasons to revisit Shantae's classic outing. Let's hope WayForward moves ahead on the idea!
