WayForward has finally revealed the official title to their upcoming platform adventure sequel, previously known simply as Shantae 5. Shantae and the Seven Sirens will see the half-genie hero and all of her pals return for another rip-roaring adventure, only this time away from their usual locale of Scuttle Island.
According to WayForward, This latest entry in Shantaeseries will see all of its beloved characters travel to a far-off land in search of remaining half-genies. There Shantae, Rotty, Sky and co. will encounter wild adventure and meet new friends and enemies, including the titular "seven sirens". While exploring this "non-linear, interconnected" new world, Shantae will discover new dances, utilise new abilities, enjoy mini-games and engage in WayForward's trademark epic boss battles.
As you can see from the screens below, newly released by the developer, Seven Sirens will see a return to the art style from previous release Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. While I will admit to feeling a smidgen of disappointment with that - as this series has been known to reinvent itself with each release - I'm still chomping at the bit to get on board with this new adventure, particularly as its colourful world will feature labyrinths, ala the amazing Shantae and the Pirate's Curse.How exciting!
Shantae and the Seven Sirens is scheduled for launch later this year for PS4, PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Apple Arcade.
