Shantae: Half-Genie Hero's DLC Revealed

By Kevin Tavore, 2 years ago
When Shantae: Half-Genie Hero was Kickstarted, we knew the game would have DLC thanks to a stretch goal. The newly-announced DLC doesn't star Shantae, but it does star someone as villainous as Shantae is heroic: Risky Boots. The daring pirate will be here on a quest for booty in a new campaign. The developer claims the new campaign will be expansive, with new puzzles, enemies and a secret new boss (hint: it's probably Shantae) as Risky Boots goes on a quest to destroy all the land.


You'll be able to tackle all of the Shantae mode levels in any order with new content to be found in each one of them. You'll do it all from your command center, a bathtub. Luxurious.

There are of course some new enemies as well:


The risky DLC will launch this Summer. No price has been set, though if you're a backer you're getting it for free. We'll let you know as soon as we hear more.

We've got the full list of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
