The delightfully cartoonish Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is a fun game. But with many fun games, there’s a good chance it has fans who just don’t think it’s quite hard enough. To those fans: developer WayForward hears you and they want to kill you… in-game. In the upcoming free update, update version 1.01, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero gets a new Hard Core Mode meant change enemy layouts, make levels faster, enhance the bosses, and maybe hopefully make some people cry? Okay, that last one isn’t totally true.
See the trailer for Shantae’s Hard Core Mode below. Hard Core Mode is included in Shantae: Half-Genie Hero’s update version 1.01 out now.
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, and PC via Steam.
