An HD Adventure with Shantae

Shantae is poised to take the stage in her first full High Definition (HD) escapade. With an illustrious history that includes Shantae, Shantae: Risky’s Revenge, and Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, the Half-Genie Hero returns with a high-definition sequel crafted for console fanatics.

  • Dynamic Stages: Revisit old stages with newly acquired transformations to uncover fresh items and secrets.

Players will have their hands full as they thwart the nefarious Baron and face Shantae’s enduring nemesis, the buccaneer Risky Boots.

  • Relic System: Collect relics to unlock powers and customize Shantae’s moves for a tailored gameplay experience.
  • Arcade-Style Stages: Tackle bosses, acquire new skills, and fully explore Sequin Land as a thoroughly connected world.
