Shantae and the Pirate's Curse coming to 3DS eShop

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse image

Shantae's lost her genie powers and only you can help her find them!

Your favorite game that none of your friends has played is getting another sequel!

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse stars WayForward's half-genie mascot, minus the genie. Shantae's genie powers have been stolen by 30 Tinkerbats that she must hunt down with the help of her pirate friend Risky Boots.

Without her powers, Shantae must use "Pirate Gear" to defeat enemies and access new areas, instead of her trademark dance powers. One new item is a set of bone daggers that she can throw into walls to make footholds for climbing.

The third game in the Shantae franchise (isn't it weird to say that?) will be available exclusively on the 3DS as a downloadable title from the eShop. You can see some screens on Nintendo Power's preview page, but will have to buy the issue to see them all. There are only a couple issues left, so throw them a bone!
