Pirate Queen's Quest

We absolutely loved Shantae: Half-Genie Hero—on both Wii U and Switch—though one minor point of contention was that the game ends a little sooner than we would like. Of course, since launch, WayForward has been busy preparing a lot more content to add on to the game, the first of which is a new storyline in which you take control of the villainous Risky Boots on her own adventure. We previously knew that the expansion would be launching before the end of the year, and now WayForward has come out with an official announcement.

Pirate Queen’s Quest will be launching on all platforms on 29th August, and will run you ten bucks if you weren’t an initial Kickstarter Backer. The story takes place just after the initial one, and will see Risky going on a quest to find five new parts to add to the dynamo so she can rule over Sequin Land. Though the same levels will be featured, the layouts are remixed and you’ll have a whole slew of new abilities to use and collectables to find. Here’s a teaser showing off some footage:
