[the player tries to visit the Sequin Land Palace, but is stopped by a guard]
GUARD: The library? You shouldn't go without a library card.
[the player enters the home of Shantae's friend Sky]
SKY: Shantae? I thought they had you under lock and key.
SHANTAE: Uhhhh ... I'm on my way to the palace library to ... to get something to read. You know, to pass the time. Can I borrow your library card?
SKY: You, read a book? This I have to see.
["You got the library card!" appears on screen]
SKY: Just don't ruin this card like you did the last one!
SHANTAE: I nibble when I'm nervous!
[the player returns to the guard]
GUARD: Let's see that library card! Golly, they say the camera adds five pounds ... but in your case, it gave you blonde hair and a totally different face! Amazing! Head down this path to reach Sequin Land Palace and the library. Good luck!
[the player eventually makes his way into the palace, then finds an elderly male librarian (bald, white beard, fez hat, glasses, blue robe, walking stick, pointy red shoes) holding a book in the library]
LIBRARIAN: A visitor! Let's have a look at you ... Hoo hoo hoo! This library card doesn't fool these old eyes. You used to come here all the time. The relic hunter's daughter, right?
SHANTAE: Yes. Well, he's my uncle.
LIBRARIAN: And what's this, a court summons?
["You gave summons!" appears on screen]
LIBRARIAN: It says here that ... hmmm ... scissors ... jigsaw ... goat mouth ... What!? They mean to cut off that long, winsome hair?
LIBRARIAN: That will never do. Why don't I just ... File these papers away until the Sultana returns. I'd like to give you a knowing wink now, but sadly my eyelids no longer work. Please take whatever you came for.
SHANTAE: Thank you very much!
[the player clicks on the glowing orb behind the librarian, and "The hollow globe contains a secret ... You got the Forbidden Isles map!" appears on screen]
[the player clicks on the librarian again]
LIBRARIAN: Keep that chin up, young lady! You have friends all around you. Good luck!



Shantae and the Pirate's Curse is a platform game by WayForward Technologies and Inti Creates for the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U. It is the third game in the Shantae series, following Shantae: Risky's Revenge. In North America, the game was released on the 3DS eShop on October 23, 2014 and on the Wii U eShop on December 25, 2014. In PAL regions, it was released on both platforms on February 5, 2015.

Following the events of Shantae: Risky's Revenge, in which the half-genie girl Shantae was forced to defeat the embodiment of her own powers, Shantae has been adjusting to a life without genie powers. However, one day, Shantae is approached by her old nemesis, Risky Boots, who informs her that the Pirate Master, a powerful evil tyrant who was sealed away long ago by the genies of Sequin Land, was preparing to return and spell doom for all of Sequin Land.

Despite not having her powers, Shantae strikes up a reluctant alliance with Risky to thwart the Pirate Master's revival.



Sequin Land Palace is a place mentioned by Mayor Scuttlebutt as being a place to which Scuttle Town ships fish via wagon as the town's main economy. It is the center of power of Sequin Land and is where the Sequin Land Sultana resides, though she is mentioned as frequently traveling and often isn't around.

Shantae visits the Palace at the beginning of Pirate's Curse to find a map for Risky Boots in the library. While there, she shows her Summons to the librarian, who is aghast to learn that the Royal Guards intend to cut her hair for attacking Scuttle Town's mayor, the Ammo Baron. Having served on the Royal Council (for one day), the librarian is able to drop Shantae's charges and save her hair.
