Shantae: Risky's Revenge Coming To iOS

WayForward's been good to Nintendo. Maybe a little too good, as their critically acclaimed games, almost exclusively made for Nintendo hardware, rarely reach the sales heights they deserve. Perhaps that's why they've been branching out a little recently, with a port of Mighty Flip Champs as a Playstation Mini, and Bloodrayne: Betrayal for XBLA and PSN. Now they're taking one of the best DSiWare games and bringing it to iPhones and iPads. Shantae: Risky's Revenge is a sequel to the cult classic Gameboy Color game Shantae and although it got great notices, was a bit handicapped by the relatively low use of the DSiWare store. As the developer explains:

Shantae is famous for three things; high ratings, hips that don't lie (whatever that means), and being difficult to find. We're bummed when we get letters from gamers who want to play it, but don't have the means. So, moving to iOS should help fix that.

Fans of Zelda, Metroid, or campy pirate ladies and genies are advised to check it out. The game is getting retina display support (but don't expect full HD) and is being optimized for virtual joypads, but will also support Fling and Fling mini joysticks. No price is mentioned, but the game is still $12 in the DSiWare store. Look for it to hit the appstore in the next few weeks.
