Fans of old-school sidescrollers rejoice. After releasing an ominous teaser image a few days ago, Wayforward Technologies has announced that Shantae: Risky’s Revenge is coming soon to iOS devices. According to a report on TouchArcade, Shantae was originally released on the DSi download store in 2010, going on to win several awards – it was considered by many to be one of the best games on the system period.

Initially conceived as an episodic series, Risky’s Revenge is sequel to the first Shantae, released on the Game Boy Color in 2002. This side scrolling platformer takes cues from games like Castlevania and Metroid. Players control Shantae, a half-genie with whip-like hair and the ability to transform into a monkey, a elephant and a mermaid. Using these powers, she traverses the land fighting monsters and the dreaded pirate Risky Boots.

There are few changes coming to the upcoming port. In addition to getting new touch controls the level design itself is being changed to accommodate the new input. For example, platforms are now wider making precise jumping easier. Owners of iOS devices have a great new game to look forward to.
