[Video] Shantae’s BFF’S Show off What they can Do in an Official Friends to the End DLC Trailer


Last month the talented folks over at WayForward revealed almost every detail there is to know about Shantae: Half-Genie Hero’s upcoming Friends to the End DLC. What they didn’t share though, was a trailer, until now:

No release dates were revealed, but going by what WayForward said before, it should be out during the Holiday period as it has already been submitted for approval and that the DLC is free to backers, with non-backers having to purchase it, should they wish to add it to their copy of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. As for who voices who, Cherami Leigh is the voice of Rottytops (voices Gaige in the DLC for Borderlands 2.) Nathan Sharp who voiced Marcel in Attack on Titan voices Bolo and Karen Strassman (voice behind Fire Emblem’s Anna) for the voice of Sky.

The September 2017 Miketendo64 Review Round-up

Still just because we have some reviews left to do, it doesn’t mean we were sitting around and doing nothing for September as a whole range of reviews got posted and we couldn’t be prouder of what we were able to achieve in one of our hardest/best months yet!

Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero Development News Update, Pirate Queen’s Quest DLC Complete And More!


WayForward, the developers behind Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero have posted on their Kickstarter an update on their development of DLC for the game including the good news that the Pirate Queen’s Quest DLC is now complete and has been submitted to Nintendo.

The post also includes news about the colour swap palette for Risky Boots & Shantae along with the Friends DLC that will allow Sky, Bolo and Rottytops to be playable characters. Here is the full post update by WayForward:

 

 

Pirate Queen’s Quest!

The Risky Boots DLC, “Pirate Queen’s Quest” is now complete, and has been submitted to Steam, Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo! Yay! Some of you may have noticed that the game has already received an update over the past few days. That’s because we’ve added new achievements and trophies, as well as other game code to support the inbound DLC!

The game will be available publicly as premium DLC, but will be free to Backers. We’re working hard to ensure that Backers can play this content early, before it’s released to the general public. We’ll update you once we’ve passed submission and have codes in hand! Please remember that each platform handles codes differently, so we’ll do the best we can to get them out on or around the same time. We hope you’ll look forward to this HUGE ADDITION to the game!

As a reminder, you will receive the DLC code that matches the platform (or platforms) you already selected for the main game. We can’t mix or match the DLC, since we have to buy these download codes in advance, so thank you for your understanding.

Tinkerbat Dance DLC is here!

We’re happy to report that we now have Tinkerbat Dance Download Codes for every platform. Without further ado, we’ll start distributing those to qualifying Backers this week! This DLC will allow Shantae to transform into a Tinkerbat to slice foes, and double-jump using the Tinker-Copter!

Keep your eyes on that inbox!

NOTE: We’d like to remind everyone that DLC was created exclusively for Backers at the “$55 and above” Tier. Since then, a lot of you have requested that this be released publicly for those who missed it. At this time, our desire is to keep this content exclusive to those who backed it. However, we’re considering releasing it at some later date, after a lengthy exclusivity period.

We’d really like to hear what you, our Backers, think about this. Please share your opinions in the comments section of our Kickstarter Page.

Color Swaps + Drifter Blade DLC Update!

Some more good news: The “Blue Shantae” and “Classic Risky” color swaps, as well as the “Drifter Blade” are complete! We’ll have more info on that next time. We’ve got a lot of content for you, coming in HOT!

Friends Mode DLC Update!

With Pirate Queen’s Quest behind us, we’re hard at work on the Friends Mode DLC. We’re making excellent progress on this new mode, which (like Pirate Queen’s Quest) adds an all new storyline, new levels, and a special boss encounter. At present, we’re about halfway done with this mode. Sky, Bolo, and Rottytops are all playable and lookin’ good! We’ll do a full update on this exciting new content soon!

See you then!

Jacktendo Selects: My Top 5 Switch Games of June 2017


Hello and welcome back to Jacktendo Selects, the monthly feature in which sees me count down my favourite games on Switch in the month that they came out and reveal the game I’m most looking forwards to from the following month!

 

This time around, instead of revealing the Top 6, I’m revealing the Top 5 Switch games that met my rules! “What rules may they be?” you may wonder. Well a game can only appear in this list, if I have personally played it and reviewed it. It will also need to be a full game, which means if it is a demo like the ARMS Global Testpunch, than it won’t be making an appearance, but the full game sure is!
