Maybe it's a digital only release over here? I'll probably order the ps4 version from Amazon in that case. I couldn't put down Pirates curse on the 3ds. I 100% in about a week.

 

Havent imported a game for ages. Am i better off going with Play-Asia or Amazon or is that not much difference?

I'd say the only difference would be cost. Speed would be dependent on the type of postage you choose. Amazon make you pay import duty up front. Depending how play-asia mark the contents cost on the packaging, you could possibly get off with not paying. I only have limited experience with both, but I wouldn't rate one over the other for service.

Anyone played/clocked this yet? My copy is arriving on the 9th January.

 

A minor gripe about Amazon USA. I ordered it 13th December but they have shipped it on the 24th December. Release date was 20th. I hope our American friends didn't get the same treatment. I ordered Pokemon Sun from Amazon UK and received it a day early :/

My copy arrived and it's in a nice box with a soundtrack. Only played 30 minutes but i have defeated the first box and the only way to describe this game is it feels like the previous games but with a lot more polish. Great dialogue as always and it looks great in HD. Only 5 worlds so might not be too long but i know it will be pure entertainment all the way through. Am i playing this on my own? :mellow:

Playing the last Shantae game on the Wii U made me realise I was wasting my time playing the Master System Wonderboy games because Shantae did it better. A lot better....

 

Well, they are nearly 20-30 years apart...

Loving this game! hoping to sink a few more hours into it tonight. I find the difficulty just right too. It's not too easy and i have died a few times on the second level! I like the variety in the levels too.

 

Spoiler

The sliding level when you jump over the barrels and the hoops with the mermaids on were nice ideas that i haven't seen in a Shantae game before.

Found out I owned Risky's Revenge on Steam from a bundle, so I bought Pirate's Curse as well. Gonna be playing through those soon.

 

Seriously, I had heard of the series before, but never bothered with it, but this game turned me into a fan. Fucking fantastic. Thanks for reminding me about it @jatpool
