WayForward has confirmed that the Friends to the End expansion is now being distributed via codes to Wii U backers in Europe and Australia, while consumers in North America are going to have to wait for a bit before receiving theirs. The official trailer and synopsis for Friends to the End are as follows:
When Shantae falls prey to dark magic, it’s up to Shantae’s BFFs Sky, Bolo, and Rottytops to save her from a Nightmare Realm of her own imagining! Conquer remixed locales (and new challenge levels) using Bolo’s grapple claw, Sky’s egg-toss, and Rottytops’ brain-munching to beat bad guys, solve all-new puzzles, and rescue the half-genie hero. It’s all possible with the power of friendship!
