Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, last year’s Kickstarted 2D sidescroller, has been seeing some DLC to correspond with its stretch goals since last year. Now, the final piece of DLC is coming to fill in the blanks on the final part of the game’s story.
Titled Friends to the End, the DLC campaign is the WayForward’s take on Castlevania III (or Dawn of Sorrow’s Julius mode) with three-character switching. Players take on the roles of Shantae’s three friends, Sky, Bolo, and Rottytops during the brief period in the game where she loses her sense of self.
Each character has separate abilities and can be switched to with the press of a button.
Check out the trailer below in anticipation of the DLC’s release. There’s no official release date yet, but WayForward has said that the content is complete and is merely waiting for submission. The DLC will be available on PC, Wii U, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Vita, and Xbox One. You can find our review of Half-Genie Hero right here.
