Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Announced As Series' First HD Entry
WayForward's exceedingly popular Shantae series just got a little larger with the release of the E3 2015 trailer for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. This installment is coming to basically all the consoles there are, including PC, but specifically we're concerned with its appearance on the PS Vita. Oddly enough, no release for the 3DS in sight, but that could well be because this is the very first HD release for the series.
The trailer above shows off some impressive platforming skills as well as environmental effects that Shantae will be working with, as well as various animal forms like a crab or monkey. There's a wide variety of enemies to defeat as well, but if you're a fan you probably already know what's in store for you. This is actually the first Shantae game I'll have ever played -- not because I wasn't interested, but I'd like to see it in HD now that I've got a chance, and it looks like a decent entry point for the series. Will you picking up Shantae: Half-Genie Hero when it releases?
