The trailer also provides a glimpse of what players on these platforms have to look forward to, showing off some of the key story beats and challenges Shantae will have to overcome in her latest adventure.
After traveling to a tropical island to take part in the first-ever Half-Genie Festival, Shantae learns of dark secrets hiding beneath the supposed paradise. With no other choice, she sets out to investigate, eventually coming up against the Seven Sirens – powerful individuals with dark machinations for the attendees of the new celebration.
There’s platforming, action and new abilities galore, not least of which being new transformations Shantae can use to battle enemies and traverse a new series of dungeons.
It’s about everything fans of the Shantae series could want from a new entry, and the announcement was matched by some other big news: The game’s second part, which provides a conclusion to the game’s story, would be added via an update to the Apple Arcade version.
It’s unclear whether this update will automatically be applied to the console ports, but more news on that is expected to come as the port’s release approaches.
In the meantime, fans who haven’t played the game yet will definitely want to view the full trailer down below.
