Today, the Wayforward Twitter account revealed that a brand new Shantae game with the placeholder title, Shantae 5, will be releasing on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Apple Arcade–later this year. According to the Wayforward Twitter account this game will be “a brand-new adventure” for the beloved genie.
Wayforward’s Twitter account was also courteous to post an image featuring a new render for the genie herself with her hair curling up into the number 5. We’ve used the image as the thumbnail, but you can look at their original image by clicking here.
Outside of the recent announcement of Shantae 5, no other information about the title’s plot, game-play, or other features have been publicly shared. I guesstimate that there will be some new mechanics added into Shantae 5, however, the charm from her previous games will remain.
Nonetheless, the Wayforward Twitter account promised fans to “stay tuned for more details.” Since the title’s supposed to be releasing later this year, I’m guessing we’ll be hearing information about Shantae 5 sooner than we think. We’ll be sure to update you all on more information when more news about Shantae 5 is publicly shared.
