Back in January 23rd, WayForward Technologies announced that Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse would “soon” receive a special Software update. This update is bringing several new features and control options, in order to take advantage of the New Nintendo 3DS.
Here’s the list of additions/changes (from the official blog):
– Use ZL or ZR to quickly swap between Inventory and Map screens.
– Use the Right Control Stick to “Quick Select” your magic and items.
– Tap the Touch Screen at any time to revert to Original controls.
– Owners of original Nintendo 3DS or 3DS XL can also access these features by connecting the Circle Pad Pro accessory.
– Designed with speed-runners in mind!
Surprisingly enough, the update only came out today… and just in Europe, for some reason. North American players will have to wait just a little bit longer, as the update will be released “soon” in North America.
