Shantae: Risky’s Revenge – Director’s Cut Announced for Switch and Xbox One

Wayforward announced that they will release Shantae: Risky’s Revenge – Director’s Cut on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One in fall 2020.

Shantae: Risky’s Revenge – Director’s Cut is an updated version of the second game in the Shantae series, which all began on Game Boy Advanced. Players will take control of Shantae, the Half-Genie heroine, as she heads out on a mission to stop Risty Boots.

During gameplay, Shantae has the ability to transform into creatures with unique abilities as well as interact with various NPCs throughout the campaign. Still, there are more bosses aside from Risky Boots that Shantae will encounter, but we’re sure that she will get through them without a problem.

The gameplay also includes platforming puzzles during levels. Players will have to use the power of transformation to get to new areas and discover secret upgrades. There’s an added Magic Mode, which includes an alternative costume.
