Product Details:

Shantae embarks on her first full HD adventure! After three highly successful outings with Shantae, Shantae: Risky's Revenge, and Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, Shantae and her friends finally get a full HD console-based sequel! Boasting vivid, detailed high-definition graphics that retain the 2D hand-drawn sprites the series is known for, this newest entry in the Shantae series almost looks like a playable TV show! Presented as a stage-based 2.5D platformer with heavy exploration elements, Shantae uses her trademark Hair-Whip Attack to dispatch enemies, then takes advantage of her Belly Dance Magic to transform into 8 different forms that each have their own unique abilities and move sets. As new forms are mastered, old stages can be re-explored to unearth new items and secrets, ensuring there's plenty of content on offer for novices and platforming gurus alike. Topple the villainous Baron behind each criminal caper afflicting Sequin Land, and prepare for the ultimate showdown against Shantae's arch-nemesis: that bodacious buccaneer, Risky Boots!

Features:

  • Shantae's Trademark Belly Dance Moves Return - Dance to transform into all-new (and fan favorite) creatures! 8 transformations and over a dozen dances to master!
  • New Relic System - Unlock new powers and customize Shantae's move set for a platforming experience uniquely tailored to your own gameplay style!
  • Conquer Arcade-Style Action Stages - Beat the boss, then come back later to find new items and secrets by way of the many new abilities and transformations you've learned, linking all of Sequin Land into a fully explorable world!
  • Huge Bosses, Humorous Dialogue, and More - Become reacquainted with the cast of Shantae in full HD, with exquisitely detailed screen-filling sprites, immersive 2.5D backdrops, wonderfully off-beat dialogue, and nonstop action!
Rated out of 5 by from I'm so hyped for this. I seriously love Shantae & the Pirates Curse it's currently my favorite Metroidvania right now (But take I've yet to own a PS3 so I've yet to play the Castlevania Symphony of the night) While I am a little sad that they are going back to the animal transfomations because the equipment was more practical this game is adding so much more that I couldn't care less. I'm so looking forward to this.

Rated out of 5 by from A Very Promising Release title. You are likely looking at the box-art and wondering; 'What's so special about this game?' 'The price-tag is kind of cheap, this thing must be a pretty low-standard game'. However, if you look a bit deeper, you'll find something truly great under the surface. Made by the same company behind Ducktales HD, the Mighty Switch Franchise and even the past few Adventure Time games (Such as 'Adventure Time; Hey Ice King, Why'd you steal our Garbage?!' and 'Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon because I don't know!') this game is a continuation of a long running franchise that, on this game's release, will be 4 games strong and still ongoing. The series this game comes from is a beloved franchise that has been slowly gaining more and more traction, a devoted fanbase and even a number of very positive reviews among the various reviewer sites on the internet. All of the past games in this series have been pure platforming, Castlevania style goodness and this game promises to continue this trend in every way. If you're a fan of classic games such as Castlevania, Metroid, Mario, Sonic and various other 2D platformer titles of yesteryear, or even a fan of a unique sense of humor, trust me, this quirky title is a little slice of personality that's DEFINITELY worth every penny.
