In the July edition of US gaming magazine, Nintendo Power, it has been confirmed that WayForward's classic Game Boy Color title, Shantae, is finally coming to the 3DS Virtual Console.

Way back in June 2011, we reported that WayForward was looking into porting the GBC classic to the 3DS VC. It looked like the 3DS port was dead in the water until this June when we reported that WayForward was waiting for Shantae's ESRB rating. Now the time is finally upon us.

Shantae was originally released in North America by Capcom in June 2002 and received rave reviews at the time. Let's hope the Virtual Console version is as good as we remember it!
