Shantae: Half-Genie Hero DLC Campaign "Pirate Queen's Quest" Announced
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, the quirky and colorful Metroidvania game that came from WayForward Technologies last year, has had its first additional DLC character campaign announced.
The campaign will feature a new story that with the Shantae series' recurring antagonist Risky Boots attempting to conquer Sequin Land, using her variety of pirate tools and crew members to advance through the game's levels, leading up to the evil plan that Shantae is meant to stop. WayForward has said in prior statements regarding this update that Risky will have a playstyle similar to that of Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, which involved a series of quickly accessible tools, rather than Shantae's slower animal transformation dances.
The game will also be playable at the XSeed booth at E3 2017, according to WayForward's official Twitter:
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Pirate Queen's Curse is currently planned for release on all platforms sometime this summer. A price has not yet been revealed, but as promised in the Kickstarter, this DLC, as well as all future DLC, will be free to backers.
