New E3 Trailer for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

The lovely people over at WayForward have decided that waiting for E3 is just so… passé. Right? So they’ve gone ahead and released their E3 trailer for the upcoming Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, and we couldn’t be more excited. It’ll be the fourth game in the Shantae series, and the first time the heroine has gone cross-platform HD. And of course, we’ll be seeing her on the Wii U.

The game is another great looking 2D platformer, with great music, fantastic hand-drawn animation, and plenty of adventure. The teaser video contains highlights with new scenes from the “E3 2015 Backer Build”, which was originally given out as a reward to the early access backers from the game’s crowdfunding efforts.

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero will have multiple game modes with numerous characters from past Shantae games, and you’ll even be able to play as them: Rottytops the zombie, Sky the bird trainer, notorious pirate Risky Boots, and even the bumbling warrior Bolo.

There’s no release date currently announced, but presumably it won’t be long to wait for this one.

Take a look at the trailer—enjoy!
