Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Gets A Surprise Update For Free Including Jammies Mode


Shantae: Half-Genie Hero’s Kickstarter campaign is finally coming to an end, but before packing it all up, ForwardWorks had one final surprise to share for everyone as a last thank you for their support.

In Jammies Mode, Shantae is on a mission to traverse Sequin Land in her jam jams to hand out invitations for her big slumber party to everyone she meets. Additionally, the update adds a new Blaster Master Zero Transformation Dance that lets Shantae dance to transform into Blaster Master Zero’s Sophia III.

Here are more details from WayForward from the Kickstarter Campaign:

Slumber Party!

In this new storyline, Shantae wants to throw a big slumber party for everyone who’s helped her out on this recent adventure, and you’re invited!

Her mission: To traverse Sequin Land in naught but her jam jams, and hand out invitations to everyone she meets!

This time around, Shantae substitutes hair-whipping and dancing for pillow fighting, floating on a snoozy cloud, and deploying devastating sheep attacks! As with previous extra modes, Shantae can collect Gems to power up her abilities and lay waste to monsters! And there are bonus images for every win condition, so be sure to unlock them all!

Hand out those invites, Shantae! It’s time to celebrate!

Blaster Master Zero Transformation Dance!

But wait, there’s more! This free content update also includes another special bonus… the Blaster Master Zero Transformation Dance!

Remember when Shantae guest-starred in Blaster Master Zero? Well today the shoe’s on the other foot (err… tire’s on the other axle?). With this new update, Shantae can dance to transform into Sophia III from Blaster Master Zero!

How to get: Once you’ve acquired the Super Revive Dance from the Snake Lady salesman (in any of the main Shantae Modes), you can trade it back to her for the Sophia III Transformation Dance!

A very special thank you to Inticreates and Sunsoft for this adorable crossover!

The free content update is now available in Shantae: Half-Genie Hero.

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Wii U, and PC.

Gamer, avid hockey fan, and firm believer in the heart of the cards.
