The other day we reported on Shantae's European release date but we were unsure if that release date applied to Australia. Now we are sure: it doesn't.

The official Shantae Twitter account broke the bad news that the game will not reach Australia on Friday, February 11th, the date the download hits European download stores. Developer WayForward had this to say on its own Twitter page:

Ausi fans we hear you, but the recent announcement does not include Australia. We don't have a lot to say about an AU release at this point.

Looks like Australian gamers might have a long wait ahead of them.
