Shantae was set to be released on 20th June on the 3DS Virtual Console but this now won't be happening as WayForward, the game's developer, has bumped it back to an unspecified date in July.

Creative director at WayForward Matt Bozon announced the sad news on Twitter:


When it does release, it will be available in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, after previously only being available in North America.

A brand new Shantae title is on its way to the 3DS eShop - Shantae And The Pirate's Curse will be available at some point this year.

It's only a relatively small delay, but has this left you a little disappointed? Let us know in the comment section below.
