Poll Results:

The results are in... and Shantae is your favorite character in the "Shantae" game series, earning 64% of your votes.  You're probably thinking "So what.  She's the main character.  We all knew that".  Well hold on there sir or madame.  You see, when we polled players back when the original Shantae game was released in 2002, Risky Boots was the clear winner, with Rottytops second and Shantae a distant third!   Players in 2002 preferred the stinkerly bad girls over our dancing heroine.  The results this time were:

-Shantae: 66%
-Rottytops: 13%
-Risky Boots: 11%
-Sky & Wrench: 4%
-and Bolo, Uncle Mimic, and the Tinkerbats bringing up the rear with a combined 5%.  Sorry gents. 

Happy... Valentine's Day Mailer?

Sure, the image in this entry is over a month old.  But, why not keep all of these Sequin Land News mailers here.  You know, just in case.  Besides, look at that crazy pink getup she's wearing... who doesn't love a 80's dance-a-thon halter?  No one, that's who.

GoNintendo Review: 9.7

Another fantastic review is up, this time a 9.7 from GoNintendo!  You can read the entire review here.  Meantime, here's our favorite quote from the GoNintendo News Team: 

"To have a DSi and now download Shantae: Risky's Revenge is a gaming crime. To get this kind of quality for $12 is absolutely insane. I can't think of a better deal on Nintendo's downloadable services. Shantae: Risky's Revenge is a love-letter to Shantae fans, as well as 2D gaming. It's not often that fans of a character have to wait so long to get a sequel, but it's even rarer to say that the wait was 100% worth it."

So, what... go buy the game I guess?

Nintendo Life awards Shantae a 10/10!

Risky's Revenge went over huge with the kindly folks at Nintendo Life.  They scored the game a perfect 10 out of 10 stars!  They sez, "...we could sit here and lay down an almost endless number of reasons why you should download this game, but at the end of the day it really all comes down to this: Shantae: Risky's Revenge is hands-down the best title available on DSiWare and quite possibly the best 12 bucks you'll ever spend on a video game."  Now that's some special kinda genie lovin'!  You can read the whole review right here!

Get the Free Original Soundtrack!

The Shantae: Risky's Revenge Original Soundtrack is now available at Big Lion Music!  And it's FREE!  Our friends at IGN were kind enough to host our humorous promotional video which shows (with great exuberance) how fans can grab Jake Kaufman's incredible compositions via a "pay what you like" system.  Hey, this is one of the few posts you can actually do something about.  So click that link and get over there.  If you don't have the cash, just choose the free option... its your call.  And, you can see the video at WayForwardTube.  Just don't drink milk while you watch.

Transfer your DSiWare to 3DS

Good news for Shantae fans!  A new report suggests that DSiWare games will be transferable to 3DS, turning what for some would be a six month fling into a long term relationship.  Don't fear commitment gentlemen, its going to be okay.  You can check out Joystiq's original story right here.

LIVE: Shantae on Twitter...happening RIGHT NOW!
