Shantae: Half-Genie Hero’s Tinkerbat Form Will Be Its First Add-On




WayForward has released an update regarding its progress on Shantae: Half-Genie Hero’s add-ons. The Tinkerbat form, which was a Kickstarter backer-exclusive reward for people who pledged over $55, will be the game’s first DLC.


In addition, details on the other Shantae: Half-Genie Hero DLC were revealed. The Risky Boots Mode will be the first add-on released. This is a campaign where players follow Risky Boots as she pillages Sequin Land. She has a scimitar and pistol available to her. However, the developer noted that the ninja, officer, and beach outfits with adjusted stats and special moves and Bolo, Rottytops, and Sky Hero Modes are also in development. The DLC code with the Blue Shantae, Classic Risky Boots, and sword add-ons will arrive after Risky Boots Mode.


In other good news, the PlayStation Vita version of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is now PlayStation TV compatible. After downloading the 1.01 update, you will be able to play it on the microconsole and your TV.


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