Hey, I'm new here. Anyways, let me cut to the chase.
I saw a Reddit post making its rounds a little while ago claiming WayForward doesn't actually have an official age for Shantae. I saved the information in case some haters came by and got the post deleted (which I discovered recently it was). I hope this is true, because I've seen a lot of detractors come out and use that tweet that said "She is about 16" as a way to call the fans dirty and horrible names.
According to what I was able to snag, James Montagna was the one who divulged the information in that post. This is what he had to say to the person who reached out to him (no, it wasn't me).
