WayForward's Shantae series is really something special, and the next entry, Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, looks primed to continue that tradition. It's heading to the 3DS eShop this winter, so see some of the platforming adventure to come in the trailer below.
In addition to Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, WayForward also recently launched a Kickstarter for the first HD entry in the series, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. This one is looking for $400,000 in hopes of producing an all new hand-drawn entry for Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Steam. With 27 days to go it's currently sitting pretty at nearly $175,000.
