E3 2016: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero’s New Trailer Delivers 2D Platforming Goodness

We’ve definitely seen some quality 3D platformers at E3 so far this year, such as Fe and Grow Up, but so far things have felt a bit light on a the 2D platforming front. Thankfully, that’s been remedied with the new trailer for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, the latest installment in WayForward’s cult franchise, which you can check out below.

As seen in the clip, Half-Genie Hero not only has some rather gorgeous artwork, but also some classic, action-packed 2D gameplay and some rather huge and impressive boss battles. Needless to say, it looks like Shantae’s latest adventure may end up being her best, if this trailer is any indication. Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is due out on September 27 for all major platforms minus the 3DS, with the Wii U, PS4, and Vita versions receiving physical retail versions published by XSEED Games.
