Shantae 5 Announced for Switch in 2019

WayForward Technologies announced yesterday that their beloved character series Shantae will be returning “later this year” to the Nintendo Switch (and other platforms). This will be the fifth game in the series, aptly presented with the working title Shantae 5.

Fans of the series remember that Shantae first appeared in 2002 on the Game Boy Color, and was given a second chance at revival in 2010—while the games were well-received on both occasions, the 2010 sales we good enough that the series has continued to grow.

WayForward has also said they’ll keep in mind a fan request of bringing Shantae: Risky’s Revenge to the Switch, so if you’re interested in this, do let them know—the more folks who are vocal about wanting it, the more they’ll give weight to the request.

We’ll bring you more news about Shantae 5 as it’s revealed!
