Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse jumps to Xbox One next month

March 16 release date

WayForward’s Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse is coming to Xbox One on March 16.

The third entry in the indie platformer series was originally released on Nintendo 3DS and Wii U in late 2014, and came to PC last year. It builds on the story of its predecessors, the Game Boy Original and Shantae: Risky’s Revenge, seeing Shantae form a reluctant alliance with her longtime nemesis Risky Boots to save the land from the evil Pirate Master. Heavy stuff!

A PlayStation 4 release of Pirate’s Curse as well as its crowdfunded sequel Shantae: Half-Genie Hero (Wii U, PSN, Xbox, PC) are also both expected to release sometime this year.
