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?

Shantae regresa a sus entornos pixelados y clásica jugabilidad con una entrega que principalmente mejora en duración con respecto a sus predecesores. Repleto de toques de humor, aroma a los 16 bits y encanto metroidvania, se trata de una de las aventuras de acción plataformera más interesantes que han pasado por nuestras manos en los últimos meses. Un título de plataformas con sabor a clásico pero adaptado a los nuevos tiempos. Si quieres un tesoro pixelado, lo tienes aquí.

Schnell entfaltet sich das typische Suchtgefühl eines guten offenen Plattform-Abenteuers im Metroidvania-Stil - inklusive idyllischer Kulissen, putziger Animationen, zäher Gegner und motivierender Rätsel. Ihre neuen Piraten-Gadgets sind zwar nicht ganz so cool wie die Tierverwandlungen aus dem Vorgänger, passen aber gut ins Spiel.
