Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Pirate Queen's Quest

As tweeted by both WayForward Games and Shantae co-creator Matt Bozon, the campaign DLC for 2016's Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, will be setting sail in just 10 days, August 29 to be specific.

The new DLC will see players take control of Shantae's arch-rival, the nefarious, self-proclaimed "Queen of the Seven Seas", Risky Boots. In a plotline that runs parallel to the Half-Genie Hero storyline, players will guide Risky through Sequin Land, gathering items to upgrade the Dynamo device that she steals from the protagonists in the game's third act.

Risky will be aided in her misdeeds by skills returning from the previous game, Pirate's Curse, including the ability to cannon-bounce and glide. New skills include the use of a grappling gun, as well as the ability to command Tinkerbats to battle alongside you. All this potentially leading towardd a showdown with the adorable Shantae herself.

I'm quite excited for this release, as I'm sure many fans are. It has been a long time coming and I personally cannot wait to set sail on the Poop Toot for some swashbuckling adventure.

Pirate Queen's Quest, is a paid DLC update (free to Kickstarter backers) and its price is still TBD. It releases August 29 on PS4, PS Vita, Wii U, Switch, Xbox One and PC.
