Shantae And The Pirate's Curse has been the latest hit for WayForward, released on both the Wii U and 3DS eShop. The third franchise entry, it featured much of the IP's popular cast and was critically acclaimed.

It arrived last October in North America and relatively recently in Europe, but WayForward has nevertheless decided it's never too late to release some special 3DS HOME Themes. Announced last week on its official website, there'll be a Shantae Pirate Premium Theme and Rottytops Premium Theme available in this week's update (2nd April) in North America.

Both of these will have "panoramic backgrounds, custom tunes by Jake (Virt) Kaufman, and character voices by Cristina Vee", too. The news post also states that additional territory release details will come soon.

Are any of you in North America tempted to pick these up when they are in the Theme Shop?

Thanks to Robin Murphy for the heads up.
