With news coming from every angle, it’s time for Shantae dlc news and now that WayForward have provided a very informative update, let’s get straight to it:


*          *          *          *          *


Our Risky Boots Mode now has a name: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero – Pirate Queen’s Quest! This will be our first Premium DLC Pack, and of course it will be free to all Backers. Development of this mode is nearly complete. We’re down to minor balancing and testing, and we expect it to release sometime in the July/August timeframe for all platforms.

Enemy ScorpGal!

ScorpGal, another of our Game Boy favorites is making her return in the upcoming Risky Boots DLC, “Pirate Queen’s Quest!”. As you might expect, ScorpGal inhabits the desert levels of the game, and is a high risk/high reward enemy. If you need to gather up loot, take the time to engage in deadly combat with this fierce foe!


Enemy Mummy!


This versatile villain from Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse is a welcome addition to Risky’s adventure. He appears in desert and spooky locations, and can even be carried on the wings of eagles! You’ll need to unravel the mystery behind this foe’s weakness if you want to survive. There must be some way to send him spinning!

And that’s not all, because we’ve prepared a quick feature list for you:

  • Any world can be taken on in any order.
  • Tinkerbats can turn the tide of battle, so deploring them is a must.
  • Risky Boots wields the Pirate Items as seen in Pirate’s Curse (Bomb Shot, Hat Glide, Grappling Hook, Pistol and she has a Scimitar).
  • Cursed Magic when collected can be used to raises Risky’s abilities.


Well, we can’t wait for the dlc, how about you? And just in case you’re wondering what’s the Switch version is like, why not check out our review with the link below?



Until next time, keep on gaming!
