Now that the Ultimate Edition is coming closer by the day, what are fellow Shantaerians, especially @JS Shantae looking forward to the most?
For me, it is definitely the costumes, especially the Beach Day outfit, and not only for the cool shades. (But of course the Ninja and Patricia Wagon suits are awesome as well.)

I am also really glad the Ultimate Edition comes with updated box artwork, as it should be.

It's amazing to realise that they were making some of this when Shantae and the Pirate's Curse wan't even released yet, isn't it?

@607 I may be going off-topic here, but I think you too will enjoy these games. They are a combination between shmups (you know, shooting stuff up) and RPG's. The first game, Princess Remedy in a World of Hurt can be downloaded for free. (But you may experience problems when you don't have Windows.) The sequel, which is actually a prequel since it takes place before the first game, is Princess Remedy in a Heap of Trouble. Both games are rather short, but the style of an early NES game, along with the simple yet effective soundtrack makes them enjoyable nonetheless.

Also,



What's that with Hypno Baron lookalikes in unrelated games?

Dag nabbit! The release date for HGH Ultimate Edition had been re-set to 8. May, and that's only for North America. I hope the other regions will soon follow, so that people all around the world can experience the joy of this marvellous game.

I will be waiting. I... will... be... waiting... :wargrr:

I was browsing through some more Shantae stuff on the Wiki, and there I found this:

Bummer ain’t it? Aw well. At least we can use the new costumes! They’re adorable and awesome. And much more of an actual 3rd DLC as opposed to just a cosmetic change...they each come with their own story, abilities, collectibles, etc.
It’s been a wild ride. Half-Genie Hero has truly been the game that keeps on giving. A year and a half after it’s release, and we’re still hyped for it’s upcoming release! Based Shants.
Here’s hoping we won’t have to wait a decade for Shantae 5.

Great minds think alike! And I can’t think of greater minds than the creators of Shantae and Princess Remedy.

Hey, maybe we’ll get a new Princess Remedy to fill the Shantae void sometime, eh?

Like the impatient fanboy I am, I already watched playthroughs of all the costume modes online, and they look really cool and fun, though I have my thoughts on Shantae's somewhat out of character behaviour in Beach Mode, and the ending of Ninja Mode.
Other than that, I'm really satisfied with how everything turned out. :shantspin:

Would be great, but secretly I hope the Princess Remedy series will raise out of its obscurence and become another successful indie series. (We all know it's possible; just look at how Shantae started out, and how much it has grown over the years.) If so, we might even get a crossover! Or at least a game with both of them playable.

Just the other day another load of interesting pre-release and concept stuff got uploaded. This is also of interest.

So this is the forerunner of the ¨bath house¨ concept.

And I want people to just be normal. Seriously, why does almost every fanbase seem to comprise of a ridiculously high percentage of trolls and lousy wankers? :shulk:
It seems the advent of the internet just encourages people to go and do deviant things that otherwise would've just been strange thoughts in their head that would go undeveloped.

Seems logical to me, but who the heck thinks about fictional characters taking a dump on your chest? Some people have issues.

Although not as gross, plenty of people seem to have a thing for inflation so your argument there is pretty much moot.
Yeah, but having a fetish and proudly stating your weird ass obsession with shitting characters on social media are two different things.

Back to normal stuff.
A new Rottytops figurine has been announced:
Very nice, I must say. I'm not so much of a Rotty fan, but this would be a must-have for every devouted Shantaerian.

Unrelated, but given the history of this thread still worth mentioning is Princess Remedy being in a new game; Slap City.

Shantae games weren't really supposed to be games for young children to begin with. The first game has some lines that probably wouldn't have been in there if the game was to be created by, say, Nintendo. But on the other hand, it's not like the female characters are constantly heavily sexualised for no reason at all, as is the case with some games rated E10+ and up. And yes, Tan Line Island, or Boner Island as some seem to call it, is a rather obvious take on fancervice. But I don't really mind. It doesn't bring damage to the interesting story the game has, and accounts for a great deal of humour. And though I don't have some lewd sexual desire for Shantae as plenty of people appear to have, I still think she's got a nice body and don't think it's wrong to show that off ocasionally. (Her regular outfit already reveals nearly all of her upper body, and it has been like that from the very beginning.) :shantdance3:
