Shantae: Half-Genie Hero coming to Switch

WayForward has announced via Twitter that Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is being released on the Nintendo Switch during Australia’s Winter season.

The game will not only be coming to the Switch’s eShop, but will also see a physical release and feature “150 custom-made HD Rumble events”.

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is a traditional 2D platformer which features the titular Shantae. Using her magical abilities, Shantae can transform into various animals to navigate levels and unlock secrets. Combined with the ability to shoot fire balls, summon storm clouds and use her ponytail for melee attacks. Shantae is one half-genie you don’t want to mess with!

Rocket Chainsaw’s own Andrew Cathie praised the game, awarding it a 4/5 in his review of the Xbox One version last year.
