New locations, abilities, and friends await in Shantae’s biggest adventure yet!

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.

Key Features:

* Explore an interconnected world using new Fusion Magic creature transformations, including a newt and other aquatic forms!
* 4K-resolution hand-painted visuals (on 4K devices only)!
* All-new characters and returning favorites like Rottytops, Sky, Bolo, and the nefarious Risky Boots!
* Collect and power up with monster cards!
* Enjoy minigames, acquire magic and items, and uncover secrets!
* Gorgeously animated TV-style cutscenes!

Shantae and the Seven Sirens stays true to classic entries but pushes the series forward with the inclusion of unique abilities and new characters. Thankfully the game’s smartphone roots don’t appear to hold back the console experience, and we are left with one of the best Shantae games to date. The load times and lack of direction might cause a few points of frustration, but not enough to make this experience any less enjoyable.

Shantae and the Seven Sirens is a game meant to be enjoyed. We understand some fans won’t like it’s lack of challenge, but we’ve certainly had a great time with it.

Loved it and I love this series. Got all achievements too! This one returns to Metropolitan roots, transformations implemented seamlessly like Pirate’s Curse, and story and characters were fun a lot of fun! Great job Way Forward!

Shantae and the Seven Sirens is another enjoyable game in the Shanty franchise. The open world and exploration could be streamlined a little but the characters and gameplay are as enjoyable as ever with great animations and abilities.

Even though Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse is still the gold standard for the franchise, I enjoyed my time with Shanty and the Seven Sirens a great deal. Here’s hoping the next adventure captures more of that classic half-genie magic.

But perhaps 2D platforms aren’t the future for her now. Perhaps it’s some for something a little more narrative-focused rich in the world building, to play to the properties’ actual strengths, because after five 2D platforms, I’m now getting tired of being teased that there’s more to all this, but never actually getting the promise of a fully realized Shanty fantasy.

Still playful and dynamic, this Shanty is the lest challenging of the series, despite its formula keeps its magic.
