Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is a much loved platforming adventure game, if you haven’t picked it up yet then what are you doing and where have you been?! It’s amazing. WayForward have just announced a brand new adventure aptly titled Shantae: Pirate Queen’s Quest coming August 29th.
The game was funded by a huge Kickstarter campaign and fortunately for you, if you were one of the backers then you can grab the DLC for free on your chosen platform. Check out what WayForward had to say below:
“The Risky Boots DLC, “Pirate Queen’s Quest” is now complete, and has been submitted to Steam, Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo! Yay! Some of you may have noticed that the game has already received an update over the past few days. That’s because we’ve added new achievements and trophies, as well as other game code to support the inbound DLC!
The game will be available publicly as premium DLC, but will be free to Backers. We’re working hard to ensure that Backers can play this content early, before it’s released to the general public. We’ll update you once we’ve passed submission and have codes in hand! Please remember that each platform handles codes differently, so we’ll do the best we can to get them out on or around the same time. We hope you’ll look forward to this HUGE ADDITION to the game!”
There’s no word on how much the DLC will be if you didn’t contribute to the Kickstarter, but I’m sure it won’t be too pricey as the game itself is a steal for the high standard of content you’re getting.
