Fans of the hair-whipping half-genie Shantae have been pretty well served this generation. On PlayStation 4, you can play Risky's Revenge, Pirate's Curse, and Half-Genie Hero, which means you have easy access to almost every game. Following on from the latter, it seems WayForward is ready to move onto the next action platformer in the series, and it'll be joining the rest on PS4.
Over on Twitter, the studio has announced Shantae 5, and it'll be making its way to Sony's console in 2019. There aren't any other details right now, but we can only assume it will build on the last game's sharper presentation and give us another solid and slightly silly platforming adventure. Hopefully we'll see a bit more soon.
Are you excited about Shantae 5? What do you want to see WayForward do with this new entry? Make a wish in the comments below.
Id love to get excited about this news but I'm playing Half Genie Hero on the Switch,my first Shantea game and as much as I LOVE it...I'm finding it way too hard.
I'm very excited. I love Half Genie Hero and Pirate's Curse.
Who? Never heard of her
@Wazeddie22 i have it on vita and I agree some of the platforming is brutal
I have the physical HGH Risky Beats for Vita - not spent much time with it though. Seemed pretty good though.
Can't hurt having more.
I like how her hair is number 5. Another game to get later in the year.
I'm a fan of shantae half-genie hero, I backed it on kickstater and it's one of the game that I platinum although I hate "replay the game under x hours" trophy, I definitely get this one day zero
Hopefully this is more like the older Shantae games, though. HGH had terrible level design compared to her previous adventures, flat writing, and it was ludicrously easy on the standard difficult.
I like her character design in that artwork. It's clearly modeled after her HGH look, but with more realistic proportions like in previous games.
More Shantae is always good.
@Wazeddie22 I just started 1/2 genie hero yesterday, and also on Switch. 😋
Good to see more Shantae. I've still got HGH somewhere in my backlog, so I'll have to get around to playing it before this releases.
I still haven't tried these games. Another wrong I need to right.
@suikoden Never heard of her either until I started seeing alot of fanart.
She's apparently really popular amongst kids/teens and young adults.
@Wazeddie22 It’s an exploration-based game. If you try and go through the levels as fast as you can you will find it gets hard quickly. But if you thoroughly explore each level and find the transformations thay will make your life easier.
I really need to get started on these games. 5 is coming and I haven't played any of them. Which is sad since they're right up my alley. Maybe I'll marathon them over the summer.
