Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is an enjoyable experience and although Shantae doesn’t necessarily bring anything brand new to the table you can see the respect, love and polish the developers have for the genre that led them to create a game like this in the first place. With strong platformers already on the Switch such as Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment, Blaster Master Zero and Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero stands strong and proudly amongst them.

Some of the meta-humor in Half-Genie Hero had to be explained, since this happened to be my first Shantae game. It definitely won’t be the last – I’ve got all four now on various Nintendo systems, and I’ll definitely dive into the ones I’ve missed. But you never forget your first, and I’m definitely “RET-2-GO” if WayForward brings it back.

I love Shantae games, and Half Genie hero is no exception. Explore beautiful new, vibrant worlds in HD while playing on your TV or on the go. While there are a few small downsides like easy enemies and short story length, the gameplay and boss fights make up for it and I highly recommend checking it out!
