WayForward posted a big update about Shantae: Half-Genie Hero on Kickstarter yesterday. The studio offered some news about the game’s upcoming DLC.

First, Pirate Queen’s Quest is finished. The Risky Boots DLC has been submitted to Nintendo, so the release date shouldn’t be far away. The DLC is free for backers, and WayForward wants those who supported the project to be in a position to play Pirate Queen’s Quest early.

More footage is in for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero’s upcoming Pirate Queen’s Quest campaign. An area featuring Mermaid Falls is attached below.

Polygon has a new look at the new Pirate Queen’s Quest DLC coming to Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. Take a look at some gameplay below.

The first Shantae figure was sold at Anime Expo earlier this month. Series creator Matt Bozon said that if it sold well, Volks would be more interested in making it available online as well.

Volks now has a pre-order page up for the Shantae figure on its website, so it looks like interest at Anime Expo was very high. Orders placed now will be delivered on August 18. Pricing is set at $75.

You can pre-order the Shantae figure here.

Udon Entertainment hosted its own panel at San Diego Comic-Con a short while ago. Among other things, The Art of Shantae was unveiled. The upcoming book will feature art from all four entries in the series.


Udon Entertainment previously announced an art book for Shovel Knight. That one is on track for September.
