Shantae and the Seven Sirens is the next entry in the gorgeous animated platformer from WayForward. It was confirmed today for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero was the last time when a new game was released in the series and it originated with a Kickstarter pitch. The game managed to achieve enough success that a sequel has been announced today. It was originally teased as the fifth entry in the Shantae series but WayForward has confirmed its official title today.
The game will support 4K resolution with its gorgeous hand-painted visuals. Some of the characters that are confirmed to make a return include Rottytops, Sky, Bolo, and the nefarious Risky Boots.
Shantae and the Seven Sirens is the full name of the upcoming game. It is being labeled as the “biggest adventure” yet in the Shantae series.
Here is a look at the story synopsis shared by WayForward.
Formerly referred to as Shantae 5, Shantae and the Seven Sirens sends the belly-dancing, hair-whipping, half-genie hero to a tropical island where Shantae and her friends encounter other Half-Genie allies, but they soon learn there’s trouble in paradise. As Shantae gets caught up in the island’s sinister secrets, she’ll use all-new dance abilities and instant-transformation Fusion Magic to explore the nonlinear, interconnected world where she’ll visit multiple towns, overcome treacherous labyrinths, and battle dastardly bosses. The game also features a new collectible card system that grants players the freedom to augment Shantae’s powers to suit their own style of play.
Shantae and the Seven Sirens will be released for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Apple Arcade. WayForward hasn’t shared any release date for it.
