When Shantae: Half-Genie Hero was Kickstarted by WayForward they pledged to deliver DLC for the game on hitting stretch goals. Now, with Friends to the End DLC, the final part of that promise is being delivered.
In Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Friends to the End DLC you play as Sky, Bolo, and Rottytops and chronologically fits into the middle of the main game. As Shantae is turned evil and becomes Nega-Shantae! Sky, Bolo, and Rottytops enter Shantae’s mind to rescue her consciousness from the “Nightmare Realm.”
Each character lacks genie powers but does have their own special abilities which you can read about in more detail on the Kickstarter update.
When Shantae falls prey to dark magic, it’s up to Shantae’s BFFs Sky, Bolo, and Rottytops to save her from a Nightmare Realm of her own imagining! Conquer remixed locales (and new challenge levels) using Bolo’s grapple claw, Sky’s egg-toss, and Rottytops’ brain-munching to beat bad guys, solve all-new puzzles, and rescue the half-genie hero. It’s all possible with the power of friendship!
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is available now on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, PS Vita, Wii U, and Xbox One.
