Limited Run Games has announced their next set of physical releases on PlayStation 4 and it’s all about Shantae. The cult classic platforming adventure series began on the Game Boy Color in 2002 and has seen two new entries in recent years with a fourth installment coming in December.
As part of the lead up to the new game, Half-Genie Hero, developer WayForward and Limited Run are releasing 5,800 physical copies of both Shantae: Risky’s Revenge – Director’s Cut ($24.99) and Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse ($29.99) on October 28th at 10am EST.
One of the hallmarks of the series has always been its music, created by Jake “virt” Kaufman, which Limited Run is also commemorating with three new CD releases. Also up for sale on October 28th will be a scant 750 copies of the soundtracks to all three current titles: Shantae, Shantae: Risky’s Revenge and Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse. The albums each cost $14.99 and will be made available in two batches at 9:45am and again at 6:00pm EST.
If this news has rekindled your Shantae passion or if you’re new to it’s music you can read much, much more about it in our previous coverage. The Risky’s Revenge and Pirate’s Curse soundtracks are also available on virt’s Bandcamp page and once, long ago, he posted the original Game Boy Color music to his blog.
