Shantae: Risky’s Revenge – Director’s Cut is coming to Nintendo Switch in both digital and physical formats thanks to Limited Run Games.

The announcement was made during today’s LRG3 2020 show — an annual livestream during which Limited Run Games announces new releases.



Shantae: Risky’s Revenge launched as a Nintendo DSi title in 2010; it was later ported to iOS in 2011.

In 2014, the “Director’s Cut” version featuring new artwork and tweaked gameplay features launched for PC; this version was later ported to PlayStation 4 and Wii U in 2015 and 2016, respectively.

Eager Nintendo fans can pick it up on the Nintendo 3DS eShop if they don’t want to wait. Otherwise, they’ll have to wait until the tentative “Fall” release date for the Switch version.
