The latest entry in the Shantae series is nearly here, and it's making its way to a 3DS or Wii U near you this summer. Shantae and the Pirate's Curse is WayForward's latest successor to the excellent Shantae: Risky's Revenge, and if these screens are anything to by, it looks just as lovely as the games that came bfore it.

Shantae teams up with pirate Risky Boots in order to thwart an evil curse that's befallen Sequin Land in this adventure, where she takes up piratey weapons like a flintlock pistol, scimitar, powder cannon, and Risky's boots to face off against her enemies. You'll sail the Sequin Land Seas with Shantae and restore her magic, all the while doing lots of piratey stuff that'd make Jack Sparrow proud. Actually, don't worry about that part. I don't even like Pirates of the Carribbean.

Both versions of the game will be available exclusively via the Nintendo eShop this summer. That's plenty of time to go back and play the other games in the series, and trust me. You'll want to do that. They're good

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse delayed for a 'couple more months'

Remember when we reported that Shantae and the Pirate's Curse for the 3DS was "almost done?" Well it appears as if it's not really all that nearly done, as WayForward has further delayed the game for a few more months. WayForward has its hands full with this and Half-Genie Hero, the latter of which has no release in sight. WayForward [Twitter via Nintendo Life]more

Before fans get too lost in the Kickstarter-funded Half-Genie Hero, there's Shantae and the Pirate's Curse for the 3DS eShop, which we got to play at PAX Prime 2013. Mash through the text, Tony.

Stick it to the Man is on Xbox One as of today

Stick it to the Man managed to do something that rarely any other game on the market does these days -- make me laugh. Billed as a "comedic platformer," Stick it is now available on the Xbox One for $9.99. Develope...more

Review: Azure Striker Gunvolt

If Capcom ever decides that they're done with Mega Man, someone will carry the torch. Whether it's tireless fan creators or the father of the Blue Bomber himself, the Mega Man community is one of the most passionate coll...more
