Not too long ago, WayForward announced that Shantae: Half-Genie Hero will be coming to the Nintendo Switch some time in Summer. Well it appears that Summer must be upon us already as a listing for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero has appeared on the European eShop for Switch with a June 8th release date. There’s no news for a physical release but you can pick up the digital version for £15.99/€16.99. North America will most likely see a release on the same day.
Here is an overview of the game that has come from the eShop listing.
Shantae embarks on her first full HD adventure! When a mysterious crime wave sweeps Seguin Land, it’s up to Half-Genie Hero Shantae to save the day! 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!
– Feel the beat with over 150 different HD Rumble events!
– Shantae’s trademark moves return! Dance or transform into all-new and classic creatures, or summon magical attacks! Over a dozen dances to discover in all!
– New Relic System allows players to unlock new powers and customize moves for Shantae in her many forms!
– Conquer arcade-style action stages that unfold into a full world to explore. Fast action and quest-style exploration rolled into one!
– When Shantae’s story ends, you’re just getting started! DLC Modes introduce new characters, levels, and bosses!
– Huge Bosses, humerous dialogue, and the wonderfully weird Shantae cast returns, now in fully animated HD!
