After three successful outings, Shantae is ready to embark on her first big-screen adventure in Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. Vibrant, high-definition graphics bring new detail to the series’ charming hand-drawn sprites, which take center stage in this engaging 2.5D entry along with the franchise’s signature action-packed platforming and heavy exploration elements. As Shantae masters her trademark Belly Dance Magic to transform into various creatures, old stages can be explored again to unearth new items and secrets, ensuring there’s plenty of content for casual players and platforming gurus alike. Steamy jungles, ancient ruins, and stormy deserts lie between Shantae and the ultimate showdown against her arch-nemesis: the bodacious buccaneer Risky Boots!

Shantae Platforming Rocks!
One of the best platformers on vita, if the shantae series doesn't sounds familiar to you, definitely give it a try. You won't regret!

Love this game
Never played a Shantae game before but loved pretty much everything about this platformer. Looks, sounds and plays fantastically on the vita. Shantae and all of the characters are very loveable from the get go and all in all just loads of fun. Highly recommended

Amazing little platformer from a great long running series.

Cute, fun, smooth gameplay...what else can you ask for?

I got the vita version and it's awesome! I'm sure the Wii U version would be even better :D

Excellent 2d plataformer!!
With the life of the wii u almoust to an end, I decided to buy the shantae half genie hero for the wii u, the first thing to my surprise it comes included with a cd with the music of the game, I think this comes also included in the ps4 and xbox one version.

The game is a 2d plataformer with an arabic style, it reminds me so much of the movie aladdin, first you start in a small town there are few buildings were you can enter, a store, a place to get hints to where to continue, some places just to talk to other characters to continue the story and get more information and there is the select stage building. As the story continues you get more options of more stages to select.

Once you select a stage you have to continue to the end to fight a big boss, while advancing in the stage you will notice there are few places you cannot get there yet, you have to come back later with new abilities to access that part, I have not played that much yet, but probably you can access new stages or get new abilities,. Also you collect gems as money to buy items and new abilities in the store, like projectiles and fire balls to use againts enemies. Also there are some abilities where you can transform into animals and get special abilities, the first one is the monkey it lets you climb walls to get to new places you couldnt get before.

And the main attack of shantae is her hair, she uses it as a whip to attack enemies.

The game has excellent music, 3d backgrounds, and 2d hand drawed characters just like ducktales remaster, the game looks incredible good, the controls are super responsive, I am so glad to buy this in wii u because the pad in the control is the best one for 2d games. I recomend this for any 2d fan, when I watched the trailers I thoiught it was a castlevania style game with a huge map, but is not like that, you get a select stage screen and after finishing the stage you get back to the main town, but you can select any of the available stages at anymoment to try to get to the secret places, as the story advance you get more and more stages, no idea how long is the game, but I really recomend it, A must have!
