Based on the first trailer for WayForward's Shantae: Risky's Revenge, there's no doubt that the Nintendo DSi-bound sequel to the Game Boy Color original is the best looking thing to hit DSiWare.


Sure, many of those clean and simple games from the ArtStyle line and from developer Q-Games are attractive, but rarely have we seen a downloadable game for the DSi platform that looks as lush as Shantae: Risky's Revenge. Check out the first trailer, which debuted on IGN today, below.

While this version of Shantae may not be as late to the hardware party as the original was, it still has to sting a bit that the DSi is soon to be obsolete by the arrival of the 3DS.

Of course, it should be noted that the spread of digital distribution and the (presumable) low cost per episode should help the game prosper this time around.
