*UPDATE (30/07/16): It seems a 3DS retail version of Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse is also coming to Europe, as there is now an Amazon listing for the game on amazon.es. According to the listing it will also release on the 16th of October and will cost €29.99 euros.

According to a listing up over at GameFly, the very same GameFly who leaked Darksiders Warmastered Edition, it looks like North America could be getting another physical release for a Shantae title this year, as Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse is supposedly getting a retail version for the 3DS this September.


Among the details given, as the September 20th release date, Maximum Games is credited as the publisher, but it was also credited as the publisher for the SteamWorld Collection for the Wii U, when in fact Rising Star is the publisher. It is also believed that Rising Star may also be the publisher for Pirate’s Curse due to them being the ones who brought Intergrow’s Sadame on the 3DS, to the NA eShop, due to Intergrow being the publisher who brought a retail version of Pirate’s Curse to Japan.


So far WayForward have yet to comment on this, but given the accuracy GameFly has had in the past, this leak is being considered more fact than fiction, which then means North America will be getting a double dose of the purple-haired genie this year, whilst Europe continues to go without.
