She's cheering for you, team

We may never know if Shantae: Risky's Revenge sells as well as WayForward hoped, what with strict limitations on the discussion of sales figures, but one aspect of the game that's definitely doing better than expected is the original soundtrack.

Released at the end of September, the soundtrack by Jake "virt" Kaufman is up there with the best available on DSiWare, but even the composer is surprised by the reaction.

Without boasting about numbers, let’s just say that I’m shocked that so many people who downloaded the album have paid for it. I can’t thank you guys enough — your generosity is seriously going to help me make better stuff. If not for the shiny new gear, then for knowing that you’re actually excited about hearing it.

If you paid for it, give yourself a pat on the back. Even if you didn't, virt is cool with that too – just buy the game instead. Not sure why? Our Shantae: Risky's Revenge review will answer all.
