Surprise! WayForward is bringing Shantae and the Pirate's Curse to Steam on April 24, 2015.
Having failed to nab the well-received gametwice now -- first on 3DS, and then again on Wii U -- perhaps Steam will make all the difference. Chris awardedPirate's Curse a 7.5 out of 10, noting that despite taking a few steps back from Shantae: Risky's Revenge, it's "still a great action romp that any 2D fan can get behind."
The PC port is priced at $19.99 and packs in gamepad support as well as the usual Steam trimmings like trading cards and emoticons. Flip those trinkets on the marketplace and think of them as a discount.
