Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition Announced for Switch Retail
Video game publisher XSEED Games announced yesterday that Shantae: Half-Genie Hero will not only be getting a physical release on the Nintendo Switch, but that it will also be the first release of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition.
XSEED claimed that not only will the Ultimate Edition contain the recently released Pirate Queen's Quest campaign mode for Risky Boots, but it will also contain the upcoming character DLC for the Sky, Bolo, and Rottytops. The statement also contained the first bit of news in a long while regarding the alternate costume modes for Shantae that were promised during the original Kickstarter.
XSEED made the announcement on their Facebook, stating that:
"Not only that, the Ultimate Edition will come with 'Friends Mode' and 'Costume Mode'! In Friends Mode, Shantae’s pals Sky, Bolo, and Rottytops must survive Shantae’s Nightmare and save their friend from doom, while Costume Mode provides three new arcade-style adventures; Dash, slash, and teleport as Ninja Shantae, work on your tan as Beach Shantae, or alter the level around you ‘Mighty Switch Force’ style as Officer Shantae!"
There isn't any information yet about the game's release date, nor any specifics regarding the not-yet released character DLC -- but XSEED promised that more details will be revealed in the near future. You can stay up to date with announcements from XSEED by following them on Facebook and Twitter.
