So today, Shantae: Risky's Revenge, a previously released sequel to the original game, Shantae, has been added to "Steam Greenlight" and is in need of votes to see if it can be added as a purchase title on Steam!
Shantae is an incredible series and having this playable via Steam would be great and open up the market for the series quite a bit for those that do not have a Nintendo DSi or an iPhone.
It's truly a great series. I had even started a work on a small tribute site for it at:
www.shantae.net (But then promptly ran out of time to work on it as I would have liked. Probably still finish it one of these days. )
Anyhow, here is the link to the Steam Greenlight Page:
Right! Both Shantae games have Castleroid elements allowing you to explore more of the world and find tons of hidden upgrades secrets as you gain the abilities for Shantae to turn into animal versions of herself. Both game's world maps are similar to how the world map of Castlevania II: Simon's Quest functioned, with dungeons similar in design to Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.
