They're indies, they do whatever they feel like, much like Playtonic thinking that a follow-up to Yooka-Laylee needs to be different instead of building up on top of the foundation that was laid down. :drshrug:
It feels more lke they're doing that to build up funds to make a proper 3d sequel without having to kickstart it.

Something tells me that "Apple Store Trailer" had some wrong footage. The fact they didn't even show a trailer for Shantae 5 at E3 is all the evidence needed.

Now looking at it, the artwork for shantae was from HGH. So, that is the wrong footage.:c

Besides, we don't know about the game would look like with her new in-game avatar's movements.

Ok so I have been hearing rumors floating around about an Undertale rep... and Waluigi being the final 2... this just seems... odd to me, but it seems a few people are mentioning it... has anyone here heard anything like this?

This is my opinion for the two that can't make it.

Waluigi: Assist Trophy status already spells game over for fighter spot.

Undertale rep: while the indie game got popularity by its mechanics, sequel, and memes. To me, it just doesn't stand against the tests of time compared to other potential candidates. Though, what is still fueling the request is Toby's continuous work on Deltarune and the memes for the series.

Also, here is a Shantae artwork for tonight.
Artist: greenlittle

Well, that escalated quickly, now Level-5 are going at the event too. At least they're known for backing anime versions of their works.

I haven't been aware of anything on the purple Waaa! or Undertale. Is it anything concrete? Hoping for some small hints of Shantae, even fake in this.
So far, not really, but it got people talking anyway, since they got nothing better to do.

Personally, I prefer the talk about the stuff that can be used to make Ryu Hayabusa transition into Smash smoothly.

Oooh~ Didn't expect anyone here to care about her/know who she is these days.

#1 Pipe Dream Pick since Brawl.
I would love her in but i cant get my hipes up. Even a new game with her would be nice. Shake shake!

So bloodstained is out guys, and they posted a new launch trailer. Cant wait to play it after work.

I'm getting the physical edition when it comes out next week. The game really turned around after WF started helping them.

Well, not for me yet. I have the switch, so I got to wait another week before playing it.

I wonder if there was mutual approval for this little scene.

Also, more Shovel Knight action! :ness:

I keep her in mind, even though Treasure characters are mostly ignored by everyone.

Getting Bloodstained for Switch as well. It's gonna be amazing!



WayForward helped with this. I know they're not gonna leave a Shantae cameo out if Shovel Knight can get in ]:<
who knows. Until there is a video that shows shantae's guest star appearance, Shovel Knight is the one that will appear. Like he has done it for previous titles too.

To be fair, WayForward showed up on relatively short notice for this one. They don't have Shantae show up in everything they had a hand with (personal games or otherwise).

I'd be surprised they'd have had time to do anything besides polish up and refine what's been laid down.

Also, can we please not start up another pointless fanbase rivalry?

Good point. I highly doubt one of WF reps will make a appearance in Bloodstained.

Again, we may get more information about Shantae 5 at Anime Expo July 4th. So, shantae is not left out in the loop for the summer since she is the mascot of WayForward.

Haha seems like i thought i had the ps4 version, but actually had the switch version. The special backers physical version. So i wont be playing the game tonight.

What did ship to me was actually my physical version of time spinner, along with a shirt and stickers. You guys play that game?


Wonder why i am only just getting this now though when it came put awhile ago. Completely forgot about it haha

That's cool, I had heard good things about this one. Just make sure to have a box of tissues handy, story's a tragic one.

Looking at it, its like Symphony of the Night with Time Manipulation (ZA WARUDO). Might be great to play.
