XSEED Gives Shantae: Half-Genie Hero a North American Release for Switch

Posted by April 2, 2018 Comment

XSEED Games announced today that they’ll be bringing Shantae: Half-Genie Hero a proper release in North America on the Nintendo Switch, as the game will be ported over on May 8th. Aside from the regular game release, the company will be offering a $40 “Ultimate Day One” Edition that will include a 30-track soundtrack, a 100-page artbook, and all of the DLC content. We have some of the details below form the company, as well as the official trailer.

Don a fancy hat, trade magic for good old-fashioned weapons and tools, and play the role of the bodacious (and ambiguously evil) buccaneer Risky Boots with the Pirate Queen’s Quest DLC. Having successfully stolen the powerful Dynamo from Shantae’s uncle, Risky Boots must now traverse the game to uncover the five mysterious components needed to upgrade the machine and bend Sequin Land to her will in this all-new adventure!
The “Ultimate Edition” also includes the Costume Mode and Friends Mode DLC, because no dance party is complete without friends and costumes! Friends Mode takes Shantae’s pals Sky, Bolo, and Rottytops into her nightmare where they must find and save her from certain doom. Shantae’s wardrobe gets expanded with the Costume Mode DLC, which provides three new arcade-style adventures for her to shimmy her way through in style. Stick to the shadows as Ninja Shantae, soak in the sun as Beach Shantae, or lay down the law as the Mighty Switch Force-inspired Officer Shantae in these arresting new arcade adventures!
