UDON Entertainment is celebrating 25 years of gaming’s most famous belly-dancing, hair-whipping half-genie with The Art of Shantae hardcover art book, which collects artwork from all five games in the Shantae series, as well as never-before-seen memorabilia concepts. Fans will be able to follow the development of Risky Boots, Rottytops, Sky, Bolo, and Shantae herself.
The Art of Shantae will come in two versions: a standard edition that retails for $49.99 USD, and a limited edition San Diego Comic-Con edition that features an alternate cover art and gold foil stamping for $60 USD. There will only be 400 copies of the SDCC edition. Pre-orders are open now for the standard edition, and pre-orders will open for the SDCC Limited Edition on July 19 exclusively at UDONStore.com.
Both editions of The Art of Shantae celebrate 25 years of Shantae history from Erin and Matt Bozon’s earliest creations, WayForward’s game series, animation by Studio TRIGGER, and more. Included are key artwork, rough concepts, style explorations, creature and environment designs. The book contains 264 pages, measures 8.25-by-11.25 inches, and will be in full color. The book will release on Aug. 24, 2021.
