After dancing onto both the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, WayForward’s platformer Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse will also be launching on the Nintendo Switch eShop, Nintendo Everything reports.

Pre-orders for a downloadable version of the game appeared on the Australian Switch eShop.

Nintendo Everything speculates the title should appear in other regions “very soon.”



Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse is the follow-up to 2010’s Shantae: Risky’s Revenge, which was itself a sequel to the 2002 Game Boy Color game Shantae.

In Pirate’s Curse, the eponymous Shantae jumps, whips, and shoots her way through a number of stages as she works alongside long-time nemesis Risky Boots in a fight against The Pirate Master.
