Don't Forget: There's Another Hair-Whipping Platformer On The Way

It's easy to lose sight of the next Shantae game with all the hoopla over the next, next one, but developer Wayforward is here to remind us (with a trailer, no less) that Shantae and the Pirate's Curse is still very much a thing.

This instalment of the retro-esque platformer series will have the belly-dancing half-genie Shantae team up with Risky Boots, the pirate antagonist from the previous game, on a quest to recover her stolen genie powers — and to stop Risky's old mentor, The Pirate Master, from returning and ruining everyone's day. On the way, she'll collect a variety of upgradable pirate gear which will assist her with crossing obstacles (and beating up baddies) in the game's large, Metroid-esque map.

Expect Shantae and the Pirate's Curse to sail onto the 3DS, via the Nintendo eShop, this Winter.
