Just when we think Shantae’s stepped out of the limelight, WayForward surprises us by giving the world a glorious piece of news. For those of you who have yet to buy the hair whipping-filled game, you have a fun new incentive: Just announced via Twitter, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition is on its way to consoles.


It’ll be nice to see the full game, with all its DLC included, available to both loyal fans and people who may have been on the fence about making the purchase. Even just briefly glancing at the response from the announcement in the tweet leads us to believe this edition will be warmly welcomed by all. In fact, our very own swashbuckling scribe Matthew Weidner couldn’t get enough of Half-Genie Hero upon its release and felt it was “one of the finest platformers to ever grace the medium, let alone the Nintendo Switch.”

No further information has ben provided by WayForward at this time, but stay tuned! We’ll keep you posted with the latest news about everyone’s favorite belly dancer.
