Back in October, developer WayForward started a Kickstarter campaign for a reboot of their popular Shantae series in the form of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. During the campaign, fans expressed interest in a PC port of the DSiWare Shantae title, Risky’s Revenge, so WayForward put the game through the Steam Greenlight process to get it released on Steam.
Now, after a bit of silence as to when the port would be coming, WayForward posted an update on their Kickstarter announcing Shantae: Risky’s Revenge – Director’s Cut will be coming to Steam July 15th. As for what is different in the DIrector’s Cut version, WayForward say that they will explain “very shortly”.
The game will be available worldwide for $9.99. The third installment, Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, has no official date, but will be coming to the Wii U and 3DS later this year.
