Shantae: Half-Genie Hero – Ultimate Edition really is the definitive version of this already fantastic game. The DLC, while not as strong as the main game, is a nice bonus, with some very creative use of Shantae and her friends. If you haven’t already tried this game, the answer is easy: play this now!

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is an easy-going platformer with a lot going for it. There’s a ton of content to see even if the game recycles most of its content. The different play modes offer some variety and replayability though, which softens the blow. There’s definitely a Frankenstein’s Half-Genie of ideas at play here though; as much as the game does right none of it is original or groundbreaking.

This game is fun for all ages and provides you with the opportunity to play as a female heroine for once in a while. She uses her hair as a weapon and transforms by belly dancing to save the world. Yes this is awesome.

Comparing this bundle to its cheaper original on the eShop, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Ultimate Edition's value is greatly boosted by the deviation of the extra modes to the main game; some being far more substantial than others in gameplay but still featuring heavy asset reuse. Players new to Half-Genie Hero will find the base game more than serviceable, while the Ultimate Edition is tailor-made for long-time series fans.

Packed with eight different campaigns, five playable characters, several extra costumes, and plenty of unlockable artwork, it's a high-value proposition. While its base adventure is rather short — seven hours for 100 percent completion — and relatively easy, and its DLC campaigns overly familiar, there's enough charm, humor, and mechanical diversity therein to keep players coming back for more.

Para quem não jogou Half-Genie Hero, esta Ultimate Edition é o melhor ponto de partida. Embora as expansões sejam no mínimo interessantes de explorar, a campanha original continua a ser o ponto forte de Half-Genie Hero na Nintendo Switch.

Si storce un po' il naso al pensiero di dover ricomprare un'altra volta anche il gioco base, ma il prezzo proposto sarebbe estremamente onesto anche se al suo interno includesse soltanto le espansioni di cui vi abbiamo parlato. Espansioni che di fatto raddoppiano il divertimento, grazie a situazioni, costumi e meccaniche di gioco completamente inedite. Pronti a tornare a Scuttle Town un'ultima volta?
