Shantae: Half Genie Hero update 1.01 will include hard core mode, Switch tease
Posted on 3 months ago by Zack in News, Switch, Wii U | 3 Comments | 0 Likes
In the latest Kickstarter update for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, WayForward has revealed that a new hard core mode that will be added for free in a future update.
Hard Core Mode is a new difficulty setting for the main “Shantae” mode in Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. This mode is designed to provide an old-school, tough-as-nails challenge to players who miss the days of rage-quitting and throwing controllers. This mode offers a stiff challenge to any player daring to test their mettle. The same studio that developed such unforgiving brutal bliss as Contra 4, Bloodrayne Betrayal, Double Dragon Neon, and the original Shantae has returned to its roots, preparing for you a scalding hot platter of anger food. Trust us, there is no mercy to be found in this new mode, and if you want to survive you’ll need to master the game completely. There is no mercy to be found here – it’s Hard Core!
Warning! This new mode is not for everybody! On the other hand, it IS for everybody since it will be FREE to Backers, and anyone who bought the game.
What to expect in Shantae: Half-Genie Hero HARD CORE MODE:
- Pain and suffering!
- Harder hitting enemies!
- Faster enemy patterns!
- Faster scroll speeds!
- Remixed enemy locations, and more of ‘em!
- New Boss patterns, attacks, and stats!
- Healing Items capped at six!
- Re-balanced magic items!
- Poor Shantae!
Along with news of some bug fixes, WayForward dropped this little teaser for those waiting for news on a WayForward project for the Switch.
Last but not least, are you buying the new Nintendo Switch? The team over here is excited for Switch, and WayForward is a Switch developer. And yet, we haven’t announced… anything at all? It makes you think we’re up to something. It’s all so suspicious! Don’t worry – we’ll have more info for you soon. Enjoy launch day, and we’ll see you on the other side!
While nothing concrete, WayForward clearly has plans for the console that they’re keeping under wraps for the time being. We’ll have to wait and see to find out what they have in store.
