"Nintendo Power magazine is coming to an end in December, but before that happens, their second-to-last issue will have details on WayForward Technologies' next Nintendo eShop game-Shantae and the Pirate's Curse.

"Shantae and the Pirate's Curse will be a download title for the Nintendo 3DS, and will start out with Shantae without her magic powers, which were taken away by sinister female pirate, Risky Boots, in her previous game. Risky reveals that Shantae's powers were broken up into fragments and turned Risky's Tinkerbat minions into more powerful monsters, who turned against her.

"The Tinkerbats plan to revive Risky's former mentor, the Pirate Master. Neither she nor Shantae particularly like the prospect of him returning, so it's up to Shantae to track down 30 different Tinkerbats and destroy them, finding new powers along the way.

"Does that sound like a Metroid game? That's because it is. The world of Shantae and the Pirate's Curse is inter-connected with non-linear paths. Acquiring special Pirate Gear along the way will add to your abilities and allow you to access new areas. For example, Bone Daggers are long-ranged weapons, but can also be thrown at walls to create footholds that let you climb. Each piece of gear can also be upgraded at an in-game shop.

"You can find more details on Shantae and the Pirate's Curse at the link to Nintendo Power's magazine preview [below]."

===================================

Sounds like WayForward is really getting into the whole Metroidvania thing.

Sounds good to me. I'd love to see the DSi version get a 3D makeover.

That probably won't happen, but the sprites and artstyle in this game look nearly identical, so you'll at least see what it would otherwise look like. Assuming they make it in 3D.
