Are you ready to dance through the danger this month? WayForward has just announced that it will release a Switch port of the classic platformer Shantae on April 22. The game will include functionality with special Game Boy Advance features and other improvements.

The original Shantae is back and coming to the Nintendo Switch eShop on April 22! Initially launched in 2002, Shantae is the acclaimed action-adventure-platformer that is often considered one of the most impressive Game Boy Color games ever produced. In this pixel-perfect adaptation, Shantae hair-whips, dances, and transforms as she seeks out four elemental stones throughout Sequin Land to put a stop to the nefarious lady pirate, Risky Boots!
