XSEED Games has announced that Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition will be releasing physically on the Nintendo Switch. This edition will include the Pirate Queen’s Quest so you can get your Risky action on. This release will also include “Friends Mode” and “Costume Mode”. In Friends Mode, Sky, Bolo, and Rottytops must survive Shantae’s Nightmare and help their friend. Costume Mode provides three new arcade-style adventures; Ninja Shantae, Beach Shantae, and Officer Shantae.

No release date has been set, so keep it right here for more information.


About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.
