Shantae embarks on her first full HD adventure in Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Ultimate Edition from XSEED Games for the Nintendo Switch! When a mysterious crime wave sweeps Sequin Land, it’s up to Half-Genie Hero Shantae to save the day!
In the beautiful, magical world of Sequin Land lives a spirited young half-genie named Shantae. Gifted with a special ability to belly-dance and transform herself into various creature forms (not to mention the most powerful ponytail in the world!), Shantae has dedicated her life to defending Scuttle Town from evil in its many forms!
So far she’s kept her home safe from steam-powered pirates, undead evildoers, and militaristic madmen, proving time and again that there’s nothing this genie-girl can’t handle.
However, as certain as the rising tides, Scuttle Town is about to fall victim to another nefarious scheme by the pirate captain and self-proclaimed Queen of the Seven Seas, Risky Boots! No citizen of Sequin land is safe!
Shantae’s invention-obsessed uncle has just discovered a new and limitless source of power by mixing magic with magnetism – a power that Risky Boots wants all for herself! But that’s not all: villainy is on the rise all across Sequin Land, and our poor Shantae can’t be everywhere at once. Is she hero enough to topple this wave of criminal masterminds and still make time to foil Risky’s latest scheme?
Join Shantae as she adventures through steamy jungles, ancient ruins, counterfeit mermaid factories (what?), stormy deserts, ghoulish graveyards, and much, much more, all while struggling to unlock the long-lost secrets of her genie heritage.
Use Shantae’s devastating Hair-Whip Attack to send monsters flying, or Belly Dance to transform into a more powerful creature form! Topple the masterminds behind each criminal caper and prepare for the ultimate showdown against Shantae’s arch nemesis: the bodacious buccaneer Risky Boots!
Can Shantae save Sequin Land once again? Or will Risky Boots finally succeed in ruling the world? All is not as it seems in this latest, greatest Shantae adventure!
Feel the beat with over 150 different HD Rumble events!
