Shantae is a series that owes a lot of its success to the Nintendo audience; it’s always felt like something of a second party game to a certain degree. And with the latest success of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero on the Wii U and Switch, that series has no doubt been gradually accruing a much larger fanbase. As something of a gift to fans of the games dating back to the first Shantae on Game Boy Color, WayForward has announced that they’ll be releasing an art book.
Though not a whole lot is known about it at this time, The Art of Shantae was recently revealed at Comic-Con. The book will contain art spanning all four games in the series and will be releasing sometime in 2018. Perhaps if this does well, maybe we’ll see more art books from WayForward covering other series, like the Mighty games.
