Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Release Date Trailer Shows Off Platforming and Belly-Dancing

The Shantae series has been held in high regard since its 2001 debut on the Game Boy Color. Since then, the lovable half-genie has head-bopped, transformed, and belly-danced into the hearts of gamers with high-quality Metroidvania action. Her latest adventure is set for release on December 20 on the PS4 and Vita, and the Wii U on December 27.  XSeed isn’t just publishing it – they’re also celebrating the release with an all-new trailer. Early buyers will be able to get the launch edition, which includes a Risky Beats soundtrack with 30 songs. Every version of it is $29.99 – making it a solid value for anyone wanting physical PS4 games that aren’t set for major releases.
