WayForward has proudly announced that two of its popular Shantae games are now available on the Google Stadia streaming platform. Together, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition and Shantae: Risky’s Revenge – Director‘s Cut mark the developer’s Stadia debut.
One will cost $29.99, while the other will only set you back $9.99. These prices are, of course, in American dollars.
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition lets players join Shantae on her first HD adventure as she travels Sequin Land to stop numerous criminal capers masterminded by some of her most dangerous foes. This all-inclusive version also features numerous additional modes that let players take control of the villainous Risky Boots in Pirate Queen’s Quest, switch between Shantae’s allies Sky, Bolo, and Rottytops in Friends to the End, utilize alternate costumes and abilities in Beach Mode, Ninja Mode, and Officer Mode, and more.
Shantae: Risky’s Revenge – Director’s Cut, meanwhile, is an upgraded version of the second game in the Shantae series, which initially launched in 2010. As Shantae, the Half-Genie heroine, players must scour the countryside to find the three Magic Seals that can thwart her archenemy, the dastardly lady pirate Risky Boots. Shantae’s mission will take her to a variety of environments (including deserts, forests, and undersea caverns) where she’ll learn numerous abilities, encounter outlandish NPCs, and confront the sinister Barons of Sequin Land.
