After developing Contra 4
(the first 'real' series sequel since, um, Contra III
), you'd think WayForward would be fine leaving behind the memory of its sassy, half-genie Shantae. Alas, it's just too damn hard to let go of the ones who got away (that Shantae
sequel never did make it to GBA, did it?). WayForward founder Voldi Way told Siliconera
that a long-awaited Shantae
follow-up is being considered for Wii. When asked if WiiWare was a possible means for distribution, Way replied, "That's the plan."
