Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse Hits Steam a Day Early

Sometimes impatience can lead to good things, as with the case of the Shantae series, Wayforward’s indie darling turned icon, and the PC port of the newest game in the series Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse.

WayForward have announced on Twitter that the Steam version of Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse is hitting Steam a day early. Originally planned for release on Friday, April 24, it’s now available to purchase and download.

Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse launched on Wii U and 3DS last year. While no other versions of Pirate’s Curse are planned, the next installment, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero was funded last year, with Wii U, PS4, PS3, Vita, 360, Xbox One, and PC versions planned.

Head on over to Steam if you’re up to download Wayforward’s retro-style title, but be sure to check out our glowing reviews of the Wii U and 3DS versions as well.
