GameFly added a listing for Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse to its website a couple of days ago, suggesting that a 3DS retail version in North America is on the horizon. A European release also appears on the way. Just recently, Amazon Spain put up a listing of its own for the game.

Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse looks to be coming out around the same time in North America and Europe. On GameFly, a September 20 release date was included. Amazon’s Spain has it for September 16 (for €29.99, by the way).

Oh, and one other tidbit. GameFly listed Maximum Games as the publisher of Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse in North America. We assumed that was a mistake, and it turns out that was probably right. Judging by this tweet, Rising Star Games will actually be publishing. They’re also handling SteamWorld Collection in North America.

Thanks to Tiago S for the tip.

Thanks to Siliconera, we also have the following details:

– Fusion system lets you fuse pretty much any character
– Different enemies appear in Fusion World
– The characters attack in the order of a “Timeline”
– Characters closest to the right being the next in line to attack
– 3 main commands
– Basic attacks are split between Fight and Energy Ball options
– Fight is a close-ranged melee attack with high power while Energy Ball uses Ki and will allow you to pull off multiple attacks depending on its type
– Special Attack: most powerful one for dealing damage
– Other options such as “Charge Ki” and “Check Power”
– Character triangle with each character fitting under a category of Power, Technique, and Speed
– Power beats Technique
– Technique bests Speed
– Speed takes out Power.
– “Ring Out”: used to blow enemies away and send them further to the left in the Timeline order
– If used properly, you can keep certain enemies from attacking by keeping them pushed back
– This will also come in handy when you want to pull off Support Attacks
– Activate Support Attacks with multiple characters just by having their turn orders next to each other in the Timeline
– Deal more damage with more characters for Support Attacks
– Different Support Attack categories
– Fight-type: deals more damage than the basic version and blows enemies away
– Energy Ball-type: aren’t as strong as the Fight-type counterparts, but they can hit multiple enemies at once
– Support-type: various effects such as healing abilities and buffs
– Maxi Gauge: choose between the two of “All-Out Attack” and “Maxi-Fusion”
– All-Out Attacks start an action battle mode where you can perform attacks in action battle style by pressing A and X for physical and energy attacks, Y and B for guarding and evading
– Can recruit enemies hit with All-Out Attacks
– Maxi-Fusion is an ultimate attack that allows you to fuse together with your entire party to deal devastating damage on the enemies

The Japanese Kirby: Planet Robobot website has updated again with more concept art. This time, it focuses on designs for the various forms of Kirby’s Robobot armor. Check them out below:

At first, HAL planned to name it Powered Armor, and have five different type of robots:

– Multi-Leg Cannon Pod
– Jet Fighter
– Gear
– Spanner
– (Screw) Driver

However, this idea didn’t get approved, so they decided to choose just the Spanner type and made about 100 designs for the Robobot.
