Shantae embarks on her first full HD adventure! When a mysterious crime wave sweeps Sequin Land, it’s up to Half-Genie Hero Shantae to save the day! Use Shantae’s devastating Hair-Whip Attack to send monsters flying, or Belly Dance to transform her into more powerful forms! Topple the masterminds behind each criminal caper and prepare for the ultimate showdown against Shantae’s arch nemesis – the bodacious buccaneer Risky Boots!

Key Features:

  • Shantae’s trademark moves return! Dance to transform into all-new and classic creatures, or summon magical attacks! Over a dozen dances to discover!
  • New Relic System allows players to unlock new powers and customize moves for Shantae and her many forms!
  • Conquer arcade-style action stages that unfold into a full world to explore. Fast action and quest-style exploration rolled into one!
  • When Shantae’s story ends, you’re just getting started! DLC Modes introduce new characters, levels, and bosses!
  • Huge Bosses, humorous dialogue, and the wonderfully weird Shantae cast return, now in fully animated HD!
  • Retail versions published by Xseed, North America for PS4, PSVita and Wii U. Switch Retail coming soon!


“After 20 years of working on the Shantae series (for Game Boy, Nintendo DS, and Nintendo 3DS), this will be her first outing that’s been created for home consoles! The dev team has brought Sequin Land to life using an exciting new visual style that mixes 3D environments and hand drawn characters. It’s a labor of love that was funded by fans and developed with fans – but made for everyone to enjoy! On behalf of WayForward and our Backers, we can’t wait to show you what we’ve created together!”

–Matt Bozon, Shantae Director
