Shantae in DuckTales
#1
My friend Random Talking Bush from over at The Spriters Resource managed to find three unused images within the DuckTales Remastered game files.

While these images obviously look like placeholders, based on their poor quality, it's possible that WayForward may have wanted to include Shantae as a playable character within the game. This is of course speculation, but these images do provide evidence that during development, they used Shantae as a placeholder somewhere.

On our friend's settee, she told me that she really liked me
And I said, "Cool... the feeling's mutual"
We played old 45's, and said it's like the soundtrack to our lives
And she said, "True, it's not unusual" - then privately we danced
We couldn't seem to keep our balance... A drunken haze had come upon us

We sank down to the floor, and we sang a song that I can't sing anymore
And then we kissed, and fell unconscious...
I woke up the next day, all alone but for a headache
I stumbled out to find the bathroom...
But all I found was her, wrapped around another lover
No longer then is he our mutual friend

To be honest. Shantae appearing out of the blue in the Ducktales universe seems a little out of place for Ducktales. Maybe Wayforward was trying to add a cameo/reference of the character but it never made it in the final cut.

And the Gennie from the movie wasn't out of place in the Ducktales universe? I think a cameo from a cartoony game for a cartoony game would be normal.

No, I wouldn't say the genie in the ducktales movie was out of place(he was a duck afte all). Now I'm starting to wonder if Wayforward wanted to have one level for Ducktales remastered where Scrooge had to team up with Shantae at one point.

That's because again, they're unused. They're quickly strewn together placeholders; you'll also see how horrid the trimming of the graphics are.

Has anyone on here tried to get in touch with Wayforward about this? Maybe some info behind the developers would explain this through.
