During the November 2023 Nintendo Indie World Showcase, WayForward announced that Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution will launch for Nintendo Switch in 2024.
UPDATE: Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution is also coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC in 2024.
Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution is a highly anticipated sequel brought to life by the original Shantae design team, including creator Erin Bozon, series director Matt Bozon, and programmer Michael Stragey. This thrilling action-adventure game continues the story from the beloved 2002 Shantae title.
In the game, players will join Shantae in a hair-whipping, belly-dancing adventure as she faces her nemesis, the cunning pirate Risky Boots. Risky Boots has devised a daring scheme that involves rotating the entire continent to make towns more accessible for plundering. As Shantae, players must take charge and manipulate the landscape itself, engaging in tectonic shifts and seamless transitions between foreground and background to navigate intricate, multilayered levels. With the original team at the helm, Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution promises to deliver an exciting and innovative gaming experience.
Shantae creator Erin Bozon, series director Matt Bozon, and programmer Michael Stragey are back at the helm, “using GBA-era development tools to authentically complete the handheld experience that was planned so many years ago.” Fans can look forward to a full game featuring “multiple chapters, numerous towns and labyrinths, six creature transformations, fierce bosses, and a soundtrack by acclaimed composer Maddie Lim, plus a 4-player battle mode.”
The title was previously only in an incomplete demo form.
