It’s crazy to think that it’s been almost twenty years now since the half-genie hero, Shantae, was introduced to the gaming world way back on the Game Boy Color. The debut entry not only laid the foundation of what would become a long-running and incredible platforming franchise, but at the time pushed pixel art to the absolute limits of its associated hardware. The series laid dormant for quite some time before Risky’s Revenge popped back up in 2010, and since then has seen a ton of success with a healthy schedule of releases. Now Shantae is back on an all new adventure that fine-tunes the HD art from Half-Genie Hero, and brings another incredible Metroidvania that sees new and old faces alike joining in to save the day.

Outright Games has revealed that it will release Trollhunters Defenders of Arcadia, a game inspired by the Dreamworks Animation and Netflix series from Guillermo del Toro. Shantae developer WayForward is creating the action-adventure project.

Below are all of the details from today’s announcement:

WayForward previously announced a partnership with Limited Run Games to produce physical versions of Shantae and the Seven Sirens. We now have a first look at the collector’s edition. All copies include a copy of the game, a steelbook case, a commemorative Game Boy cart, and more.

Pre-orders open on May 15 at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET for both standard copies and the collector’s edition. There’s no limit on units here, as reservations will be taken for four weeks.
