Shantae developer WayForward created Mighty Switch Force! for 3DS back in 2011, with a sequel that followed roughly two years later. Both eventually found their way to Wii U. All of these years later, WayForward looks to be revisiting the Mighty Switch Force! titles once again.

Mighty Switch Force! Collection was rated in Europe for Switch and other platforms today. The classification mentions four titles. This suggests that along with Mighty Switch Force! and Mighty Switch Force! 2, it’ll also include the Steam games Mighty Switch Force! Hose It Down and Mighty Switch Force! Academy.

WayForward is developing Shantae 5, the studio just announced. The game will be released on Switch later this year.

Unfortunately, not much is known at present. WayForward only mentions that Shantae 5 will offer “a brand-new adventure.”

monsters—they’re R.L. Stine’s famous Goosebumps monsters,

released from their books and looking to wreak havoc!

You’ll need to use your wits to investigate the surroundings,

puzzle out clues, and outsmart the monsters before it’s too late!

Survive a trek through your neighborhood, unravel the mysteries

of the Dead House, and sneak through the mall after hours; only

then can you confront Slappy and stop his plans for revenge!
