The long-awaited sequel to WayForward's acclaimed action platformer Shantae finally sees the light of day, coming to PS5 and PS4 in 2024.

Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution Revives on PS5, PS4

More than two decades ago, the Game Boy Colour played host to a vibrant new action platformer by the name of Shantae. Developed by WayForward, the game gained a loyal following with its imaginative gameplay and striking visuals. A sequel, Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution, was in the works for Game Boy Advance but, regrettably, never reached completion.

Fast forward 20 years and it seems that the adventuring days of our favourite half-genie are far from over. In a twist that has thrilled fans, it has been announced that Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution is set to be revived and will debut on multiple platforms in 2024, including Sony’s PS5 and PS4.

Loyal fans and newcomers alike can check out the game in action in the newly released trailer. Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution proudly boasts an old-school visual style, a tribute to its Game Boy Advance origins. This is not a game that has lost sight of its roots – it is, instead, a game that celebrates them.

The gameplay will be familiar to those that have trekked through Shantae's world before. Players will be able to attack enemies with a whip of Shantae’s flowing hair, transform into different animals, each boasting its unique set of skills, and alter the stage surroundings in exciting ways over the course of the game.

Along with the engaging single-player story, Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution will cater to those looking for some shared fun through a four-player battle mode. Unquestionably, this long-lost sequel’s revival spells an abundance of action-packed platforming sessions on the PS5 and PS4 come 2024.

Upon hearing news of Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution's upcoming release, fans around the world began warming up their thumbs in anticipation. The announcement has been met with widespread excitement and has set forums and social media platforms abuzz with lively discussions and speculation.

This news highlights the appeal and longevity of classic platformers, and the enduring fan base they can amass. As we look forward to experiencing this long-lost sequel, there’s one thing game enthusiasts can agree on: wishes do, indeed, come true.

To wrap up, the resurgence of Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution is not only exciting news for Shantae fans, but a beacon of hope for all those who yearn for the return of their beloved, unfinished games. So, whether you're a die-hard Shantae follower or just a fan of gaming nostalgia, start the countdown. Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution is weaving a path right to your PS5 and PS4 consoles in 2024.
