A Smashing Good Time in Scuttle Town
Things are moving at breakneck-speed over here, and Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is looking more and more amazing with each passing day! Don't believe us? Check it out for yourself below!
Scuttle Town’s going “full circle” in Half-Genie Hero. We’re building out new concepts that take the Game Boy Color's circular town layout and recreating it in 3D. If you look closely, you might notice that every vantage point from past games is faithfully represented! The front and rear gate, the scarecrow fields, and even the old Lighthouse bay. We can’t wait to start building the new Scuttle Town!
In our last update we showed you Desert concepts. What you see below is those concepts made real in-game! It now has a darker look and hints of a lost age in the background. Totally swank!
We've also got new desert-themed enemies to show you, including some new and returning faces! Check ‘em out!
