Looking for a new platform hero? Well, Shantae dates back to 2002 on the GameBoy Colour, but isn't dragged out at every launch and rehash opportunity like Sonic and Mario are. This is only her fourth outing, and she hits the Vita looking fresh and vibrant, with hair flick moves, elephants, underwater sections and more.
The Vita version is out on the 20th, and is set in a magical world of Sequin Land where Shantae defends Scuttle Town from evil in its many forms! So far she’s kept her home safe from steam-powered pirates, undead evildoers, and militaristic madmen, proving time and again that there’s nothing this genie-girl can’t handle.
However, as certain as the rising tides, Scuttle Town is about to fall victim to another nefarious scheme by the pirate captain and self-proclaimed Queen of the Seven Seas, Risky Boots! No citizen of Sequin land is safe!
