Shantae and the Pirate's Curse Japanese boxart

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero comes out in just a couple months, and it will be available in both physical and digital formats. The past two Shantae games haven't had the same treatment, at least in the West, but a recent listing suggests that 2014's Shantae and the Pirate's Curse will be getting a cartridge release on 3DS for those who would prefer not to download it from the eShop.

The news comes via a listing on Gamefly that puts it down for a 20th September release. Maximum Games is listed as the publisher, though it's believed that this is an error on Gamefly's part, as it has made a similar error with its listing for the Steamworld Collection. While this physical release isn't absolutely confirmed, it seems to be a pretty safe bet considering the popularity of the game and the fact that it's already received a physical release in Japan.
