Shantae Half Genie Hero Nintendo Switch hasn’t been announced yet but, there are rumors of it being announced soon.

Shantae is a platforming, adventure series, which debuted on the Game Boy Color in 2002. Because it was released at the end of the Game Boy Color’s lifespan, it wasn’t popular until a year or so after release. The gameplay allowed the series to grow quickly in popularity, being known as one of the best games on the Game Boy Color. The original copies of Shantae now sell for up to $300 on eBay, as a collector’s item.

Gameplay Elements:

Shantae’s main attack is with her hair, which she uses as a whip. How would you feel getting whipped to death by someones hair? Because she is a genie, she can transform into different animals. Every animal has a specific ability, according to what kind of animal it is. The trailer shows a few animals in the game, including a monkey, spider, crab, and even an elephant. Not only does the trailer showcase quite a bit of action, but there appears to be several boss fights.

Currently, none of the storyline has been announced yet. However, the main antagonist, Risky Boots, will be the main villain in this game as in previous installments. Here is a preview of what we can expected from Shantae: Half Genie Hero straight from the developers:

In our story, Shantae is roused from a deep sleep, suddenly alert. She plunges into the moonlit forest in search of answers. In nearby Scuttle Town she discovers a mysterious trapdoor, and beyond that, a luminous subterranean cavern. A familiar voice calls out, drawing Shantae to a beautiful fountain. Touching its waters she is immediately spirited away to the fabled Genie Realm. At her feet a magical seal swells as some powerful evil seeks escape. The chamber trembles with a deep, bellowing roar and everything goes white. Shantae sits upright, back in her bed. Was it just a dream? Or a vision of things to come?

As the player it’s your job to find the source of this new evil power and banish it once and for all. The story is doled out in CHAPTERS, with each chapter introducing new subplots, friends & foes, a new Transformation to discover, puzzles to solve, hazards to overcome, and a Boss to conquer. Revisiting past chapters with newly acquired abilities will unlock the next set of paths, powers & plot-lines.

Sounds exciting! Here is an official trailer of the Shantae: Half Genie Hero.
