Developer WayForward originally planned to release Shantae: Risky’s Revenge in episodes. The final game, however, will be sold as a single DSiWare download for 1,200 DSiWare points ($12). That will make Shantae: Risky’s Revenge the most expensive single DSiWare download to date.


Creative director Matt Bozon says Shantae: Risky’s Revenge "pushes the action beyond what’s possible on the Nintendo DS or Nintendo DS Lite."
