Let's Play Shantae!

If you're having a hard time finding a copy of the original Shantae for Game Boy Color, why not spoil the game completely and forever by watching these amazing videos!  We were astonished to find roughly 10 hours of narrated Shantae video created by the knowledgeable and humorous Brickroad.  You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll whip haircrow.   Watch "Let's Play Shantae", or check out his other videos (including his Super Speed Super Metroid series) right here.

  2. This helped me a lot when playing the original Shantae about a year ago. I did the dungeons myself, but this playthrough helped out with the many secrets spread throughout the game.

  3. You guys should totally involve a monster like a Like-Like to swallow and spit out Shantae. I'd buy it off the spot if the game did. Or a inside a giant worm level like Bowser's Inside Story. Just adding these two things will attract the voraphiles and they'll definitely buy the game. Raise your sales! All because of these two itty bitty things.

    I mean if Legend of Zelda has it and a lot of Mario games have it and Banjo-Tooie has it, why not? Tired of seeing all male characters getting eaten... would be nice to see a hot female character for once.

    Heck I'll settle to see a blob of green goo coating her in mucus to trap her like in Folklore.

  4. Oh... it's the disturbed GameFAQs user known as StormCroc. And he's brought along his sickly desire of watching women being swallowed whole.

  5. Dear Anon:
    1. Shantae isn't and shouldn't be your fetish fuel station.
    2. Your theory is way off, Banjo-Tooie and Mario games didn't have amazing sales because they had vore in it, they had amazing sales because they were great games and people loved them. Buying a game becuase it has a vore enemy is the stupidest and worst reason to buy one, no offense.

    On-Topic, Brickroad's LP was pretty good, I hope he remembers to pick up RR and enjoy the mess out of it.

  6. This is nice and all, i've watched the whole thing some time ago, but i think a blog should have more updates with original content from the game, there's nothing here i haven't seen before... at all.

    But i guess that's partly my fault for keeping a (too?) close eye on this game (and anything Shantae in general). I was excited to see there was an official site... but i expected more.

    Still, i guess it's good enough to show it off to the people who doesn't know about it yet.

  7. What if instead of watching internet videos, Shantae went up on Nintendo's Virtual Console? I know the VC doesn't have a gameboy section, but I think it's about time. I got Shantae when it first came out. However, over time (almost a decade!) and with moving, I seem to have misplaced my copy. It has been so long since I have played it, and I'd love to play through again. Unfortunately, the best price on ebay is about $150. That's a bit pricy for any video game, let alone one I own... somewhere. That price plus the old format and few copies makes the game less accessible for newcomers to the series.

    Think about it, instead of random people on ebay making a profit, WayForward could make some more money off the original Shantae while hooking on more players to the franchise.

  8. I remember these videos. After I cleared the game for the first time, I visited the vids to see what I missed (just 1 firefly in the most obvious place.) Good looks on the uploader's part!

    Just as Ubisoft made a bit of coin repackaging Rayman on the PS1 on the GBA (poor port,) the DSi (good port,) and a few other ports; Wayforward can own with Shantae as DSiWare (although I have a feeling if they were to port it straight as is, Graphic Enthusiasts would flip on how a GBC game made it looking as is.) IDK, but if this were to happen, It'll kill off alot of the ridiculous sales on eBay... seriously, paying 250 bucks for a copy is just downright extortion!

    I'm just glad I beat the rush and scored me a hard copy of Shantae last year... best buy of 2009 for me! :D

  9. I got my copy a few years ago. It was only 75 dollars.

  10. I was lucky enough to pay $80 in an eBay auction for mine about a year ago. People who want a copy should look for auctions when they pop up. There's one going on now but the starting bid is pretty high.

  11. Hey, are you guys ever going to put up art of Shantae using the spells, or the redesigned versions of her forms? We have art of Mermaid Shantae, so what about Elephant and Monkey?

  12. Ah yeah, I've watched this. It's actually what alerted me to the wonder that is Shantae (and I felt bad for not having played it back in the day).

  13. Hey Team Risky, I post-dropped your link into my blog about trying to emulate Shantae. I thought you might appreciate the dedication to a game that so many gamers are just now discovering (or in my case, re-discovering.) Enjoy!
