Yesterday WayForward revealed over Twitter that they are currently planning to release Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse in the middle of October in North America while gamers in Europe and Australia will have to wait a little bit longer. While no time frame was announced for those areas, the reason for the delay is “due to the localization/submission process.”
#Shantae and the Pirate's Curse will likely release in mid-October in the US. We'll announce the date once we have it.
