Shantae and the Pirate's Curse coming to 3DS eShop

Shantae the genie is getting another game devoted to her misadventures, this time without her magical powers. WayForward's mascot is set to appear in Shantae and the Pirate's Curse on the 3DS eShop, as she attempts to overcome a spell that has removed her genie-hood.

The upcoming issue of Nintendo Power (via Joystiq) shares the details. Pirate's Curse has our heroine teaming up with the pirate Risky Boots, for whom Risky's Revenge is named. She has to find 30 Tinkerbats who have stolen her genie powers, so instead of using her dance abilities, she'll rely on pirate gear.

The announcement didn't detail a release date, but given how WayForward cranks out games at a rapid pace, we shouldn't have to wait for too long.
