The lost Shantae game returns! This revolutionary revival can now be preordered from Limited Run Games.

After 20 years, Shantae’s lost adventure comes full circle! Independent game studio WayForward, alongside publisher Limited Run Games, is elated to announce that Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution — the long-lost Shantae title for Game Boy Advance — is now available to preorder from Finally completed after a two-decade hiatus, Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution realizes the vision that began many years ago, allowing players to experience the journey on a Game Boy Advance-compatible cartridge as it was originally intended. The game is available in both a standard edition and a collector’s edition, and will be offered as an open preorder from February 23 through April 7, 2024. A new gameplay trailer can be seen here:

A direct follow-up to the legendary original 2002 Shantae game, Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution takes players on a never-before-seen quest in which the belly-dancing Half-Genie Shantae must stop nefarious pirate Risky Boots, who is back with a “groundbreaking” new scheme that will leave Sequin Land spinning: by rotating the continent itself, cities will be relocated to the coast and become ripe for the plunder. However, by using Shantae’s signature hair-whip attack, magical creature transformations, and her new ability to rearrange the game’s mix-and-match multilayered levels, players will be able to turn the tectonic tables on Risky.

As the adventure unfolds, Shantae explores multiple towns and labyrinths, obtains a variety of magical attacks and items, battles fierce bosses, and meets friends like Rottytops, Sky, and Bolo — some of whom will be encountering each other for the first time. On top of the single-player story mode, Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution also includes a Link Cable enabled Battle Mode for up to 4 players — a first for the Shantae series.

The standard edition of Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution includes the physical game on a transparent purple GBA-compatible cartridge, along with an instruction manual, and is priced at $59.99. The collector’s edition — which includes a physical copy of Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution on a shiny gold GBA-compatible cartridge, acrylic display frame, instruction manual, embossed foil game box, collectible coin, spinning enamel pin, original CD soundtrack, and a double-sided 12″x16″ poster, all packed into a deluxe foil box with foil slipcover — is priced at $99.99.
