WayForward has announced Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in 2024. The developer hasn’t provided a more specific date or timeframe.
This is a revival of a cancelled Game Boy Advance game which fills the gap between Shantae and Shantae: Risky’s Revenge.
Shantae Advance is a platform game that has the half-genie face the threat of Risky Boots. This powerful enemy has developed a machine capable of rearranging the continent to easily plunder any village she wants.
Now Shantae will have to use this power as well, altering the land to fight through the multilayered levels and put an end to Risky’s ambitions. The game features six creature transformations, and a 4-Player Battle Mode.
Players can opt into using HD versions of the art and HUD elements or keep them pixelated in true GBA homage. The announcement trailer shows some of the game’s features and gameplay portions:
