The Shantae series has been a fan-favorite franchise since the day it was born. Its time on Kickstarter for Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero made it an even bigger hit in modern times and was ported to various consoles, including the Nintendo Switch. But now, the next game in the franchise, Shantae and the Seven Sirens, has gotten a new trailer and a release date of May 28th.
Here is a description of the game, and you can find the trailer below that!
Packed with multiple towns and more labyrinths than ever before, Shantae and the Seven Sirens combines the most popular elements from past Shantae titles into the Half-Genie hero’s biggest outing to date. The excitement begins when Shantae visits a tropical paradise where she befriends new Half-Genie allies, but things quickly go awry as she discovers that sinister secrets are stirring beneath the island’s surface. As Shantae gets wrapped up in the island’s mysteries, she’ll use all-new dance abilities and instant-transformation Fusion Magic to explore the nonlinear, interconnected world and battle an assortment of diabolical foes…not the least of which are the enigmatic Seven Sirens!
Complementing the action are spectacular animated cutscenes that bring the story to life – a series first! – including a jaw-dropping anime-style opening by renowned animation house Studio TRIGGER. Other new features include 4K support and a collectible card system that lets players augment Shantae’s powers in a variety of ways.
