WayForward has announced that its “long-lost sequel” Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution is coming to Nintendo Switch.

Once destined for the Game Boy Advance, the original development team have been reunited to bring the platforming-adventure to the portable home console.

The nefarious pirate Risky Boots has come up with a “groundbreaking” new plan – by rotating the continent that Sequin Land is on, she can move any town right to the coast for easy plundering.

Playing as Shantae, you will be able to shift, twist, navigate and explore by swapping between “mix-and-match multilayered levels.” That will see you once again hair-whip and belly-dance your way through “scrambled lands, misplaced towns, monster-filled crypts, and daunting labyrinths.”

“In 2001, we started development on a Shantae sequel for Game Boy Advance. It was never completed, but we’d always hoped that, someday, we could go back and finish it,” explains WayForward creative director Matt Bozon.

Shantae creator Erin Bozon adds: “Now, more than 20 years later, we’ve brought the original development team back together to complete the lost Shantae game.”

The developer has outlined the game’s key features, which include:

  • Discover the lost chapter of the Shantae saga, fully restored and released after 20 years!
  • Fight and explore using your hair-whipping ability, magic items, and belly-dance transformations (including monkey, elephant, crab, and more)!
  • Spin and shift Front Yard and Back Yard playfields to create new routes and solve puzzles!
  • Visit towns, battle through labyrinths, purchase upgrades, find collectables, and meet with friends like Rottytops, Sky, and Bolo!
  • For the first time ever in a Shantae game, four players can compete in Battle Mode!

Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution will be released digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2024.
