Shantae returns and meets other Half-Genie characters in a new adventure.
WayForward Technologies announced that a fifth Shantae title was in development earlier this year. It didn’t have an official name outside of Shantae 5 but that’s now changed. The sequel is now called Shantae and the Seven Sirens.
It’s out on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and Apple Arcade. Though a release date wasn’t announced, WayForward did provide a plethora of new details. Shantae and the Seven Sirens sees the titular character and her friends meeting other Half-Genie characters on a new tropical island.
It’s not long before trouble starts brewing so it’s up to Shantae to save the day with new dancing abilities, insta-transformation Fusion Magic and a collectible card system for properly customizing powers. You can expect the same interconnected world filled with towns, dangerous areas, mini-games and tough bosses. There’s even support for 4K resolution visuals on supported displays.
Stay tuned for more details on the release date and pricing in the coming months.
