Bonus Ultimate Edition Content
Pirate Queen’s Quest Story
Series protagonist Shantae makes way for a new hero: long-time villain Risky Boots herself! Swap magic and good intentions for weapons and an attitude as Risky Boots embarks on her own quest to take over Sequin Land: traversing the game’s levels in search of components to upgrade Shantae’s uncle’s Dynamo device and use it to rule the world.
Friends To The End Story
This time, with Shantae’s life hanging in the balance, buddies Sky, Bolo and Rottytops step forward to save the day. All three fan-favourites are playable and bring fresh (or in the case of zombified Rottytops, putrid) skills to the fore as Shantae’s besties dive into her mind and fight through the Nightmare Realm to rescue the heroine of Scuttle Town.
Dress up as Ninja Shantae, Beach Shantae and Officer Shantae and enjoy three new arcade-style adventures that make use of Shantae’s extra abilities.
Discover never-before-seen artwork from Shantae: Half-Genie-Hero with the official, Ultimate Edition, art book by WayForward!
