Because I'm a huuuuge fan of the Shantae series, and seeing as how the series shares much in common with Wario Land, I thought I'd start up her very own thread here.

I know there's at least a couple fans of the half-genie around.

Shantae: Half Genie Hero releases Sept. 27, 2016! Who hype?

It's good to know Shantae has her fans, never played the GBC games but they had some really good music.
It'll be a good idea to check out the game when it comes out this September, if it's anything like the GBC games then it should be fun.

We're a small fanbase, but a loyal one.

And yes, the music is phenomenal. Jake Kaufman, composer for all 4 Shantae games, is one of the best composers working in video games today. The guy is a force of nature, a real throwback to the great VG composers of the 90s.

Half-Genie Hero looks to be the greatest Shantae yet, combining everything that made the previous games so wonderful and so much more. I honestly haven't been this excited for a game in along time.

It's great to hear that Kaufman will also be doing the songs for the latest Shantae games as well, yeah I've seen quite a bit of dedicated fans here and there.
Shantae still gets some really cool fan art as well. People seem to really enjoy this genie it'd be a good idea to get into the series I have been interested ever since it was coming back.

Who made that animation of Shantae dancing? It's super adorable!d:rolleyes:
Also, I can't wait for 1/2 Genie Hero. I wonder when they announce the release date for Europe. Just a Wario fan just can't wait!:)
I'm not sure, apparently "NEGILIM" made it? Whoever that is. Judging by the quality of it I'd say it's someone who works for Wayforward.

I'm hoping the European release isn't too long after the NA. You guys deserve to enjoy it ASAP too!

They're wonderful games. The characters are charming as hell, the writing is delightfully clever, sharp and funny, and the gameplay is extremely reminiscent of, you guessed it, Wario Land. What's not to love?

The fact that it did look stylized and played similarly to wario land is what drew me to this series. Love this series quirky nature much like wario's own series himself.
Also liking these Shantae transformation animals like the spider and monkey, it reminds me of how you can turn into a zombie or catch on fire in the land series.

It's true. With Nintendo not making Wario Land anymore at least Shantae is keeping the spirit alive. She's basically doing for Wario what Mighty No. 9 was supposed to do for Mega Man.

She had this brief, but nice little cameo in Wario Ware too

~YAY! I love Shantae! I actually started to like the series since the GBC version (the first). I like the exploration/platformer genre, and the play style is like Wario and Metroid, kind of in between. I really like the retro look of the game too. And the soundtrack! Oh how good the soundtrack is! (You know how much I love vg soundtrack!)
But I'm sad... No Shantae 4 Smash anymore :(

Yup...glad to see another OG fan. I bought the GBC game back in 02 because I had just finished all the Wario Lands, and I wanted more. Lo and behold, I see an ad in Nintendo Power for a game that looks like WL3 with this cute genie. Loved the game dearly, but Shantae kind of fell off the planet for a while. I honestly never expected her to return from obscurity and gain the popularity she has recently, but she certainly has, and I'm definitely happy for that. The future is bright for her.
