Shantae reissue?

Postby VideoGameCritic » September 12th, 2020, 10:26 am

So I was perusing Limited Run games and noticed they are publishing reissues of Shantae for the Game Boy Color and Switch.
https://limitedrungames.com/

I'm sure the GBC version is just like the super-rare 2002 original, but the Switch version? Is this the original pixelated game just running on the Switch, or did they upgrade the graphics??

As usual, precious little info on the Limited Run site.

I took a look. Under details it says "The original Shantae game on physical cartridge for the Nintendo Switch. Region free." So yes, this is the rare original GBC Shantae game on a Switch cartridge.

Thanks velcro. I ended up order the GBC version, since reviewing this would be just like reviewing the original ultra-rare game. I really like the Shantae series so really interested to play the original.
