Shantae: Half Genie Hero E3 Trailer

By Kevin Tavore,
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is a game that makes a statement with its hero. You play Shantae who, as it turns out, is actually a half genie and probably also a hero in a classic platforming adventure.

The E3 trailer is not shy and proudly shows off combat against all kinds of enemies including a boss, fluid platforming, and quite a lot of the classic Shantae charm fans of the series have come to expect. If you're interested in the song, it's actually sung by Shantae's voice actress!

Shantae: Half Genie Hero is set to release in Fall 2016. Despite the platforms listed at the end of the trailer, the game will also be available digitally for Xbox One.
