Product Description

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!


  • 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!

Shantae Half-Genie Hero, full size fun.
1 year ago
I saw this on the shelf and the title alone forced me to buy it. I played it as soon as I got back from shopping and it was much different from what I normally play but I had fun! It's a pretty good game and it's a Wii U game, it's worth getting.

Great Game! Another Win on the Wii U!

I had heard of this game but I never had played it until now. I know the original was made by Capcom and was on the Gameboy Color back in the day. But I did not play that one either. This game is super fun. And I love the story. It’s a great game to play. To me it’s like a rejuvenated version of Aladdin that was in the genesis but made for modern times and updated.

A great 2-D platformer with tight controls and charming characters. It's not a game to miss for Shantae fans or even newbies to this genre of videogames.

I had no idea how cool this franchise was until recently, especially this game in particular. The anime style graphics look awesome and the game is really fun to play. I do also enjoy some of the smaller details too.

Shantae is back and better than ever with the previous formulas revamped. It's even better with some DLC to expand the adventure.
