The physical version has finally been confirmed!
By Robert Marrujo:: Fans have been waiting for an official announcement regarding a physical release of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero on Nintendo Switch. This writer tired to pry that information from the XSEED representative at E3 this past June, but to no avail! Thankfully now we can say without a doubt that the game will indeed be arriving on a cartridge... the only problem is we don't have a release window!
That said, the curtain has been peeled back enough for us to get some much appreciated insight as to what to expect. The physical version of the game on Switch has been dubbed Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition and comes with the following:
- Copy of the game.
- Risky Boots' DLC Pirate Queen's Quest.
- Friends Mode: Sky, Bolo, and Rottytops must survive Shantae's Nightmare and save her from doom.
- Costume Mode: Includes three new arcade-style adventures. Ninja Shantae, Beach Shantae, and Officer Shantae are all featured.
Once we learn more about the game we'll pass it along to you. In the meantime, if you can't wait for the boxed edition you can always give the game a download, instead.
