About the game

Embark on a swashbuckling adventure with Shantae, the hair-whipping Half-Genie. When she loses her magic, Shantae must team up with her nemesis, the nefarious pirate Risky Boots, in order to save Sequin Land from an evil curse. As a pirate, Shantae gains new weapons to advance her quest, slay monsters, battle epic bosses… and hopefully get her magic back in the bargain! But can she really trust her deadliest enemy?

The third Shantae game takes Shantae beyond Sequin Land to cursed islands and labyrinths, each hiding a new piece of Pirate Gear. Upgrade Shantae's hair and weapons or unlock advanced Fighter's Moves. Locate maps, return lost Heart Squids, collect rare loot and laugh out loud at the weird, wild and wonderfully humorous cast of characters. Incredible pixel artwork, unlockable Pirate Mode, multiple endings and an unforgettable soundtrack make this one game you won't want to miss!
