Shantae is a franchise that has been slowly building a fanbase over the last 17 years. The last two games of the half-genie hero’s adventures have appeared on Xbox One with Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse and Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. In fact, that last one is available as part of Game Pass at this very moment. Anyway, earlier in the year, WayForward announced that there would be another entry in the series. Well, that game has now gone from being known as Shantae 5 to getting a full title. And that title is . . . Shantae and the Seven Sirens.
There’s still a lot we don’t know about the upcoming game (publisher, release date, price) but we do know some stuff. For a start, this will be the first entry in the series to go 4K. We also know a brief description of the game which you can check out below –
Formerly referred to as Shantae 5, Shantae and the Seven Sirens sends the belly-dancing, hair-whipping, half-genie hero to a tropical island where Shantae and her friends encounter other Half-Genie allies, but they soon learn there’s trouble in paradise. As Shantae gets caught up in the island’s sinister secrets, she’ll use all-new dance abilities and instant-transformation Fusion Magic to explore the nonlinear, interconnected world where she’ll visit multiple towns, overcome treacherous labyrinths, and battle dastardly bosses. The game also features a new collectible card system that grants players the freedom to augment Shantae’s powers to suit their own style of play.
