Shantae and the Pirate's Curse Will Be Getting A 3DS Physical Release

Rising Star Games will be publishing a physical version of Shantae and the Pirate's Curse coming in September.

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, the fantastic 2D Platformer from developer WayForward that originally released in 2014, will be receiving a physical release for the Nintendo 3DS thanks to Publisher Rising Star Games.

For those unfortunate enough to miss it, Shantae and the Pirate's Curse was an excellent 2D Platformer with tight Metroidvania-style design, a great and diverse soundtrack, wonderful pixel art, charming characters, and memorable comedic dialogue just to name a few of it's many selling points.

It's a must own for any fan of 2D Platformers, especially if you own a 3DS, and it will soon be available for any of your shelving desires.

While a physical 3DS version has been available in Japan for some time, the rest of the world will be granted the same privilege soon, with the added benefit of new content exclusive to the new version, as well a discounted price ($29.99/€29.99/£29.99).

While Shantae and the Pirate's Curse is now available for almost every current-generation platform in addition to the 3DS (Xbox One, PS4, Wii U, Steam,, Kindle Fire TV), anybody interested in owning a physical copy of the game on 3DS will be able to come September 27th in the USA, and September 30th in Europe.



I'm just your average basement-dwelling eclectic and eccentric video gamer who does his best to make a point, share experiences, and talk to people without swallowing his own tongue. I'm mostly into Platformers and RPG's, but I'll try pretty much anything once, and I'm also trying to find something different and interesting to play, and then share with as many people as I can. I can also beat the entire first world in Super Meat Boy while wearing oven mitts.
