Shantae: Risky's Revenge – Director's Cut is a powder keg of high octane, hair-whipping, hip shaking platformer action, now with brand new features!

It's time for revenge - and this time there's no escape!

Shantae: Risky's Revenge - Director's Cut is an upgraded version of the second game in the Shantae series, once again putting players in control of Shantae, the Half-Genie heroine, who's on a mission to stop her scheming nemesis, the nefarious lady pirate Risky Boots. To do so, Shantae will explore a variety of environments (including deserts, forests, and undersea caverns), transform into creatures with unique abilities, encounter hilarious NPCs, and confront the dastardly Barons of Sequin Land, all accompanied by spectacular multilayered pixel-art graphics and a fantastic soundtrack.

Features thousands of frames of animation, huge multi-sprite bosses, and a quest so big it’s bursting at the seams. Discover magical attacks, brew zombie coffee, save golden babies, and master the art of belly-dancing to transform Shantae into more powerful creatures. Use your powers to foil the lady pirate Risky Boots and save Sequin Land from certain doom!

This Director’s Cut also introduces a re-imagined Warp System, perfect for speed runners and returning players alike!


Shantae: Risky's Revenge - Director's Cut is headed to Nintendo Switch and Xbox One for the first time, bringing with it all the action, dancing, and magical transformations that the Shantae series is known for.

As with previous editions of Shantae: Risky's Revenge - Director's Cut, the highly requested Switch and Xbox One versions offer numerous enhancements over the classic 2010 release, including improved navigation features, HD character portraits, and an unlockable Magic Mode.

In addition to Nintendo Switch and Xbox One, Shantae: Risky's Revenge - Director's Cut is also headed to Windows 10, and is currently available on PS4 and Steam. A physical Switch version, published by Limited Run Games, will be available for pre-order on starting in September with additional specifics to be announced at a later time.
