Less about it being obscure and more about the fact that Shantae is a belly dancing, midriff showing girl. Shes not exactly the most family friendly of protagonists.

Yeah very little chance Shantae would make it into Smash Bro's although it would be cool if she did, i'd also like her to appear in SkullGirls lol.

Behold the great Mantae! 8-)

It's mostly about her being a western character in a game full of Japanese properties from a Japanese development studio.

Well with how Nintendo is deciding the characters for Smash Bros, anything can happen.

Its not a remake of the first game, but it has the same setting and characters.
Check out the trailer below.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNckNbeA4AM

Shantae: and the Pirates curse coming out on 3DS in Dec follows the events of Shantae: Risky's Revenge (the sequel to the Gameboy Color Shantae) and will finish the trilogy.
Here's the trailer for that.

You can get the Gameboy Color Shantae game on the 3DS e-shop for cheap so its worth starting there if your interested.

IIRC, a sealed boxed copy was like $2000 or so?

The special features of playing it on a GBA are still exclusive to the old cartridge version, so the price probably won't ever come down to anything reasonable.

Our current total on the kickstarter stands at - $818,222

As expected we've slowed down greatly, i hope WayForwards updates at least spark a little bit of new interest so we can reach 900k soon!
