Unless you've been trapped in a genie's bottle, you'll probably know that WayForward's amazing looking Shantae: Half-Genie Hero has finally made it to the Wii U. To celebrate Shantae embarking on her first full HD adventure the good folks over at WayForward recently put out a launch trailer with a rousing soundtrack which you can watch above.

As the story goes a mysterious crime wave sweeps across Sequin Land, so it's up to good old Shantae to save the day. Players can use Shantae's devastating hair-whip attack to send monsters flying, or even belly dance to transform into a more powerful creature form. If you manage to topple the masterminds behind each criminal caper you'll face the ultimate showdown against Shantae's arch nemesis - the bodacious buccaneer Risky Boots!

We're currently in the process of reviewing Shantae: Half-Genie Hero and impressions are very good so far. Have you picked up the game yet? What do you think of Shantae's first HD outing?
