Shantae: Risky's Revenge hits Steam next week

'Director's Cut' Greenlit for Steam release

Shantae: Risky's Revenge, a critically-acclaimed classic-style platformer, will be release on Steam on July 15.


Developer WayForward confirmed the news in a Twitter post on Wednesday, following a long stint in limbo on Steam's Greenlight community voting platform.

The Steam version will be titled 'Shantae: Risky's Revenge - Director's Cut' and while the developer is yet to announce any further details, the 'Director's Cut' title would suggest a compilation of all previously released content and perhaps new features in addition.

"Features to be announced shortly," said WayForward.

Shantae: Risky's Revenge debuted on DS as DSiWare digital title in 2010, before getting an iOS port in 2011. It start half-genie Shantae who platforms her way through colorful and detailed 2D worlds as she battles the malevolent pirate Risky Boots.
