PQube and WayForward have announced that the Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition will release at retail next month.
This is presented as the complete celebration of one of Shantae’s best adventures and comes crammed with digital bonus content.
It will contain a copy of the game, the Pirate Queen’s Quest story expansion, the Friends To The End story expansion, Hard Core Mode, and the upcoming Costume Pack mode – that will add the Ninja Shantae, Beach Shantae and Officer Shantae challenge modes.
The Ultimate Edition will also include the Kickstarter “Backer-Exclusive” content in the Tinkerbat Transformation and colour swaps, and, exclusive to this retail edition, is the blue swimsuit costume.
The publisher adds that all pre-order and launch copies will be the Day One Edition, which has the 30-song Risky Beats soundtrack CD, and a 100-page artbook filled with unseen sketches of Shantae and the gang bundled in.
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition will release for Nintendo Switch at retail in Europe and North America on April 27th.
