WayForward publishes a new trailer for upcoming 3DS platformer Shantae and the Pirate's Curse

A new trailer for Shantae and the Pirate's Curse has surfaced on the interwebs.

In this new video, you can see the hair-thwapping 2D platformer in action. And guess what? It's looking pretty special.

The game has been on our radar since last November, when it was revealed in the penultimate issue of Nintendo Power magazine.

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse is a continuation of the long-running platform series that first saw the light of day on the Game Boy Color.

You play as the belly-dancing half-genie heroine Shantae, who teams up with her archnemesis to try and stop some dastardly pirates from taking over her Sequin Land.

The game is being built by WayForward, the developer responsible for the Shantae franchise ever since its inception. WayForward is also responsible for Mighty Switch Force and Aliens: Infestation.

We'll let you know when we've got a concrete release date for Shantae and the Pirate's Curse. We do know it should be hitting the eShop before the year is out, mind.
