Nintendo Switch finally gets A lost Game Boy Advance metroidvania

The folks over at WayForward, the masterminds behind Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution, have finally reunited to put the finishing touches on this Game Boy Advance (GBA) gem after a whopping 21 years.

We got our first glimpse of this classic Metroidvania during the Nintendo Indie World Showcase last night (November 14). The showcased footage of Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution had us all in awe – with HD character portraits and a slick 16:9 ratio, it looks like a full-on remaster. Brace yourselves because this beauty is set to hit the Nintendo Switch scene sometime in 2024. And for the die-hard fans, WayForward has teamed up with Limited Run Games to drop a special GBA cartridge too.
