Shantae: Half-Genie Hero – Trailer for the Friends to the End expansion

A few weeks ago, WayForward introduced the Friends to the End Expansion, the next expansion for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, but also the final part of the storyline. If you missed the initial announcement, make sure to check out this post for more details!

The Friends to the End expansion for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero sees Shantae fall prey to dark magic, and it’s up to her friends (Sky and her egg-toss, Bolo and his grapple claw, and Rottytops and her brain-munching) to save her from the Nightmare Realm… which happens to be her own! It features remixed levels, as well as brand new challenge levels.

Here’s the key features of the expansion:

  • Enter the Nightmare Realm and experience the final piece of the Shantae story!
  • Solve puzzles and battle enemies by swapping freely between Sky, Bolo, or Rottytops!
  • Glide, toss eggs, and hatch helpful bird buddies as Sky!
  • Grapple and swing through the air as Bolo!
  • Fling your head and eat brains to regenerate health as Rottytops!
  • Level up! Collect Gems to increase each heroes’ potential!
  • Unlock different endings by recovering lost Dream Squids
  • Enjoy fan-favorite musical selections from Shantae’s past, included with this mode!

And here’s the trailer for that expansion:

We don’t have a release date for the expansion yet, but it should be released before the end of the year (if everything goes well at lotcheck)!
