Sure, Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse looks like an awesome Metroidvania game, but that’s not what’s important here. Has the gaming world seen a trailer with this many ponytail attacks? Has being a belly dancer ever looked so badass?
The launch trailer for Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse answers these questions and more. The major takeaway here is that if you’re afraid of the aesthetic or title here, this snippet of gameplay should more than ease your mind. The time is upon us to weaponize belly dancing, as Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse is set to release on the 3DS eShop on Thursday, October 23rd.
