WayForward looking at animated Shantae series

In a recent interview with ComicBook, Shantae creator Matt Bozon revealed that Erin Bozon is currently exploring the idea of an animated Shantae series. You may remember the team made headlines when they went with renowned animation studio Studio Trigger to create the introduction for Shantae and the Seven Sirens which is coming to consoles on 28th May. With development on Shantae and the Seven Sirens now complete, what’s next for you? 

I’m taking a breather by helping out with a few other projects where I can while we prepare for the next big thing. Erin really wants to keep exploring Shantae as an animated series, and I’m all for that, too. After that Studio TRIGGER intro it feels like it’s closer than ever. Why doesn’t the cartoon keep playing? Why does it end?    



  1. I will not buy Shantae games on PlayStation platforms. They might get censored.

      1. I mean if it pertains to her character design and who she is, then yes u culd say tht.
        Now is it required to enjoy the game? not really
        but it definitely goes against her design and the way the designers intended for her to look.

        Still dont understand when ppl pull the “You just want to fap to the character” argument bs. It’s not like we hav Rule 34, hentai manga/animations or adult websites, or anything….
        We just want the creators vision and our love for a series to be respected.
        Funny how Nintendo went from one of the most well known companies to censor 3rd party from Wii U and Wii era, to being one of the least likely to censor now with Switch. (same with Xbox)
        PS is now the one tht is well known for censors, for really odd reasons.

  2. YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who would think twice about this?!?!

  3. I’ve played Shantae since 2010. I loved it. Just got Seven Sirens Today. When I saw the animated cutscenes (There’s 13 in total), I just couldn’t believe it! I play a good variety of games, and none of them have a combination of animated cutscenes AND voice acting! An anime would be amazing!

  4. I NEEEEEEEEEED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. A Shantae animated series could be just as good or better than the ones for Mario, Zelda, Sonic and Street Fighter.

  6. When’s the first episode? Pls don’t leave me hanging….😫😫😫😫😫😫

  7. Shantae’s voice sounded so cute in the animated cutscenes. I would love to see a series!!!
