WayForums General Support Shantae Risky’s Revenge – Director’s Cut 3DS eShop Update

    Hi, I was wondering if there is any update regarding a release date for Shantae: Risky’s Revenge – Director’s Cut for the 3DS eShop. I don’t think it’s fair for it to only be released on the Wii U, PS4, and Steam, as those of us that have played the original DSiware version would like the Director’s Cut on the 3DS eShop as well. Please let me know. Thanks.



    We did begin work on a port of Shantae: Risky’s Revenge Director’s Cut to Nintendo 3DS last year, but due to some complications we’ve had to put it on hold. Our goal was to expand the canvas size to create a pixel perfect, stereoscopic translation of the game rather than stretching the game to fit the 3DS screen resolution. It has proven to be a significant endeavor! So we’re going to revisit this sometime in the future. In the meantime, Risky’s Revenge is available in the 3DS eShop in it’s original format. Thanks for your understanding and patience!






    Really want to know if in the future the game is released in the 3DS, it will be a “free update” or a full new retail game…meaning that if I buy Risky’s revenge now I will have to buy the director´s cut at full price.



    We currently have nothing to announce right now regarding the Risky’s Revenge – Director’s Cut release for 3DS.

    However, per your question, we would be releasing it specifically for the 3DS platform which would make it a new title. It would not be an update to the title you can currently buy as that is the original DSiWare release you can play on the 3DS, not actually a 3DS game.


    Curioso Curioso
