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!

Shantae herself is doing a realtime play by play of her first adventure.  It's a great way to get back in the Shantae groove, or acquaint yourself with the plot of the original game.  Tweets will post throughout the day every day until launch.  A few minutes ago our hero discovered a magical belly dance deep inside the creepy Golem Mine labyrinth, and is currently seeking a path to safety.  What will happen next?  Tune in and find out at http://twitter.com/Shantae_WF

Mighty Flip Champs Connection!

Both Nintendo Life and Shantae Fan Club members got this cool mailer detailing a free prize inside for Mighty Flip Champs owners.  Since then, a few curious individuals have written in asking if they will have only one chance at a tiered prize, sealing their fate the moment they unwrap Shantae.  The answer: NO!  You can continue to improve your Mighty Flip Champs skills, and return to your Shantae game in progress to claim higher ranked prizes at any time.  So once you buy MFC, there's nowhere to go but up, even if your Shantae quest is under way.  Feel free to ping pong between games at any point.  To sign up for the Shantae Fan Club, visit www.wayforward.com
