While there’s no sign of WayForward’s successful Kickstarter title, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, there’s still plenty of Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse love to go around. And now PlayStation 4 owners will get a chance to get in on the action as Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse has been announced for the platform.
Coming to the PS4 on April 19, 2016 and will retail for $19.99, PS+ owners will get a 25% discount to boot.
Embark on a brand new adventure with Shantae, the hair-whipping belly dancing genie. When she loses her magic, Shantae must team up with her nemesis, the nefarious pirate Risky Boots in order to save Sequin Land from an evil curse. As a pirate, Shantae gains new weapons to advance her quest, slay monsters, battle epic bosses…and hopefully get her magic back in the bargain! But can she really trust her deadliest enemy?
Beyond Sequin Land lie cursed islands and labyrinths each hiding a new piece of Pirate Gear – Flintlock Pistol, Pirate Hat, Scimitar, Risky’s Boots, and even a Cannon. Upgrade Shantae’s hair and weapons or unlock advanced Fighter’s Moves. Locate maps, return lost Heart Squids, collect rare loot, and laugh out loud at the weird, wild, and wonderfully humorous cast of characters.
Now if we could only get Shantae: Half-Genie Hero in our hands. How about that, WayForward?
