Two years before developer WayForward Technologies went all super-sharp sprites with 2016’s Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero, they de-powered their magical maven and turned her into a pirate. Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse is one of the most satisfying 2D platformers going, and it’s out today on Switch.

Everyone’s favourite half-genie belly dancer looks pretty good in HD. Shantae, the star of games like Shantae and Shantae: Risky’s Revenge, wants to hair-whip her way to HD platforms, and the developers at WayForward are asking for $US400,000 to make that happen.
