Two SHANTAE Games Are Available on Stadia
WayForward’s Shantae series of 2D games are super fun to play. Now, two games are joining the list of games available on Google Stadia. You can now play Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition and Shantae: Risky’s Revenge – Director’s Cut via Stadia now. They’re not part of Stadia Pro, so you have to pay $29.99 and $9.99 respectively for the games, but they’re exciting games and Stadia’s a good platform, so it worth the extra cash.
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition lets players join Shantae on her first HD adventure as she travels Sequin Land to stop numerous criminal capers masterminded by some of her most dangerous foes. This all-inclusive version also features numerous additional modes that let players take control of the villainous Risky Boots in Pirate Queen’s Quest, switch between Shantae’s allies Sky, Bolo, and Rottytops in Friends to the End, utilize alternate costumes and abilities in Beach Mode, Ninja Mode, and Officer Mode, and more.
Shantae: Risky’s Revenge – Director’s Cut, meanwhile, is an upgraded version of the second game in the Shantae series, which initially launched in 2010. As Shantae, the Half-Genie heroine, players must scour the countryside to find the three Magic Seals that can thwart her archenemy, the dastardly lady pirate Risky Boots. Shantae’s mission will take her to a variety of environments (including deserts, forests, and undersea caverns) where she’ll learn numerous abilities, encounter outlandish NPCs, and confront the sinister Barons of Sequin Land.
