Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, will receive a limited “Ultimate Day One Edition” physical release for Nintendo Switch on May 8, 2018 available at select retailers throughout North America. The Nintendo Switch exclusive “Ultimate Day One Edition” physical release includes the game’s groovy 30-song ‘Risky Beats’ soundtrack on CD, a gorgeous new 100-page art book (96 interior pages + 4 page cover), and plenty of company for Shantae with the ‘Pirate Queen’s Quest’, ‘Costume Mode’, and ‘Friends Mode’ DLC all included right on the Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition game card packed in the box.
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!
About Shantae: Half-Genie Hero
Following three highly successful releases with Shantae, Shantae: Risky’s Revenge, and Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero reacquaints players with the cast of Shantae in style. The magical world of Sequin Land is more vibrant than ever with true high-definition graphics that retain the charm of the original 2D hand-drawn sprites the series is known for. Shantae, the spirited young half-genie, must once again defend Scuttle Town from the pirate captain and self-proclaimed Queen of the Seven Seas, Risky Boots, who plots to steal a newly discovered limitless source of power.
