Review: Shantae and the Pirate's Curse (Nintendo Wii U) | digitallydownloaded

WayForward's Shantae has been for many years a hidden gem for people to uncover. The original on the Game Boy Color was a title that ended up with limited distribution, and then the sequel was a release on the DSiWare platform (hardly a huge success) and then ported to iOS and PC. But there has never been a console Shantae title, and for a 2D platformer, this is odd.

Love the newest Strider! Definitely underrated.

Love these lists as i now want to check out Momodora (on PS extra) and Ender Lillies.


It's a very solid list and the best part is that I think all of them are on other platforms so more people can play them.

Damn, looks like my 2 physical Switch copies are worth quite a lot of money on ebay for some reason.

The last two entries have limited prints with Pirates curse having the most limited copies of the shantae series that's why.

Destroy all Humans was $2 at one point... this is by far the cheapest month so far. Sine Mora, Shantae? WTF

Sounds like you may need a little Coffee Talk

darthv721218d ago

is this the same coffee talk with linda richman?

Are MS even trying with Games for Gold anymore?

drpepperdude1218d ago

I guess they are using it to fund all the money they losing on Game Pass from $1 subs.

UltraNova1218d ago

Why would they even try giving away decent games when they can have their customers pay for them with GP?

crazyCoconuts1218d ago

Do you think it's possible XBL will include GamePass in the future and just drop the free games?

Z23ash1218d ago

That’s what gamepass ultimate basically is

crazyCoconuts1218d ago

I'm talking about them dropping free games and providing GP at the same cost as XBL. $15/month is too much for lots of ppl imo

mandingo1217d ago

How is 15/m too much. That's just disrespectful lol

Kribwalker1218d ago

this is a terrible month for gwg

execution171218d ago

I don't even remember the last time they had a good month with gwg

Kribwalker1217d ago

april was pretty good with Project Cars 2 and Fable Anniversary, but the rest this year haven’t been great. But, mind you, you do get 4 games every month as opposed to PsPlus scaling back to 2 games a month so 🤷

Another month of saving space on my harddrive.
