Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition physical contents detailed

Pre-orders are now open for PS4 and Nintendo Switch editions in Europe

PQube (London, UK) December 7, 2017 – PQube today announced that critically-acclaimed action platformer Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, from WayForward, is receiving a physical ‘Ultimate Day One Edition’ release across Europe for both PlayStation 4and Nintendo Switch in Spring 2018.

This collectable edition of the crowdfunded hit includes a bumper art book containing never-before-seen images from Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, the toe-tapping 30-track ‘Risky Beats’ soundtrack CD, plus three bumper game expansions in the form of the bundled ‘Pirate Queen’s Quest’ DLC, the ‘Friends To The End’ DLC and also the ‘Costume Mode’ DLC.

As the defender of Scuttle Town, Shantae has previously defeated steam-powered pirates, sinister undead and even a military takeover in a bid to keep her home town safe. Now, in Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, the sassy half-genie must rise to the occasion once again as the Queen of the Seven Seas, Risky Boots, plots to steal a newly discovered limitless source of power.

But that’s not all! In the Pirate Queen’s Quest, 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.

Another all-new quest awaits in the Friends To The End expansion. 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.

The third and final expansion, Costume Mode, lets Shantae don a trio of new costumes. 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.

The new Shantae: Half-Genie Hero art book and the 30-song Risky Boots soundtrack CD complete the Ultimate Day One Edition collection, which will be available from all good European videogame retailers in Spring 2018.
