Rejoice Shantae fans, as the entire series is now available on Nintendo Switch. Five games in total are ready for download, with the original just coming to the eShop in the past day. You can watch WayForward’s celebratory trailer, below:

Shantae was already available in the 3DS eShop, but this is the first time the Game Boy Color classic has come to Switch. Take that scalpers! Here’s the description of the game from its eShop listing:

The original Shantae adventure returns! First released in 2002, Shantae is the classic action-adventure-platformer that introduced players to the fan-favorite Half-Genie heroine. In her debut title, Shantae hair-whips, dances, and transforms as she seeks out four elemental stones hidden throughout Sequin Land to put a stop to the nefarious lady pirate, Risky Boots. During her quest, she’ll explore treacherous labyrinths, gain amazing new powers, conquer mini-games, and meet up with friends such as Bolo, Sky, and Rottytops! This version of the game includes both the standard Game Boy Color mode and the Game Boy Advance-enhanced mode!

Remember when games had “enhancements” for GBA? The Zelda Oracle games are another great example of this. We digress, however, but hope nonetheless that you will all make your way to the eShop to give this gem some love.
