XSEED Games announced that the hit crowdfunded action platformer developed by WayForward, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, will receive a limited "Ultimate Day One Edition" physical release for Nintendo Switch in Spring 2018.
The Nintendo Switch exclusive "Ultimate Day One Edition" physical release includes the game's groovy 30-song 'Risky Beats' soundtrack on CD, a dreamy new art book, and plenty of company for Shantae with the bundled 'Pirate Queen’s Quest' DLC, as well as the brand new 'Costume Mode' and 'Friends Mode' DLC.
Friends Mode takes Shantae's pals Sky, Bolo, and Rottytops into her nightmare where they must find and save her from certain doom. This all-new storyline features ethereal new levels and a special boss encounter. Shantae's wardrobe gets expanded, too, with the Costume Mode DLC, which provides three new arcade-style adventures for her to sashay her way through in style. Stick to the shadows as Ninja Shantae, soak in the sun as Beach Shantae, or lay down the law as the Mighty Switch Force-inspired Officer Shantae in these arresting new arcade adventures.
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is also available for PS4, PS Vita and Nintendo Wii U.
