Shantae and the Pirate's Curse to get physical 3DS copies with exclusive game content

0

Why does this genie hate pirates again?

Rising Star Games will be bringing 2014's Shantae and the Pirate's Curse to retail for the 3DS on the same day its non-3DS-supporting sequel Shantae: Half-Genie Hero release, September 27 and in Europe just three days later. This retail release will feature a new "arcade-style game" called Super Shantae Nab!!, though no details of what exactly that is have been released at this time.

Rarely if ever have I seen a game be boxed up so long after release, but 2016 is a crazy year where an orange man might be elected president, so anything could happen.

Releasing a physical copy on the same day the sequel releases also seems almost like a cash grab, especially considering the new content was not described whatsoever in the press release we were sent. Most likely nothing worth double dipping for or paying a premium as the boxed copy costs $10 more than the $19.99 3DS eShop release. I wouldn't mind being wrong, though.
