Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse Shows Off New Items And Bosses



    WayForward Technologies have released a new trailer for Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, which is now in development for both Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.


    Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse is inspired by the Metroid games in the sense that it will feature an interconnected world and require you to acquire different kinds of items in order to access new areas in the game.


    The 3DS version will feature stereoscopic 3D, while the Wii U version will utilize HD artwork. Both versions of the game will support a touch-based inventory management and a real-time mapping system on the second screen.


    Additionally, the Wii U version of the game will also support off-TV play.


    Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse will be released in late Summer.
