Shantae: Risky's Revenge originally released on DSiware nearly four years ago, and then on iOS in 2011, and now WayForward has announced that the game is officially coming to Steam with an all-new Director's Cut version next week.
The Director's Cut will feature new additions such as a new mode called "Magic Mode" which gives Shantae a new costume that lessens magic consumption but also cuts defense in half, giving players a different kind of challenge. There's also a new map and warp system, achievements, Steam trading cards, and more.
It's worth noting that the visuals seem to be the same as they were on DSiware and iOS but appear to be upscaled here; even still, the game looks great.
In other Shantae news, two other new games in the series are slated for release later this year—Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, which will release on 3DS; and Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, which will be coming to every major platform except 3DS and OUYA.
