“Set on tropical Paradise Island, where a mysterious sunken city lies beneath the sand and surf, Shantae and the Seven Sirens already offers hours of action, adventure, platforming, and exploration, as well as an animated opening by the renowned Studio TRIGGER. As Shantae the Half-Genie, players use their hair-whip, animal transformations, dance abilities, and Monster Card power-ups to battle the looming threat of the enigmatic Seven Sirens as well as the nefarious lady pirate, Risky Boots. The “Spectacular Superstar” update adds the following four new ways to experience the game:”
• Definitive Mode: A more challenging “director’s cut” that features classic Shantae difficulty, with rebalanced item drops and magic consumption, as well as more-intense boss fights and new dialog with the Sirens before each battle.
• Full Deck Mode: Definitive Mode with a twist. Start with all 50 Monster Cards to customize Shantae’s abilities to your liking.
• Rule Breaker Mode: Definitive Mode without limits. You can equip up to 50 Monster Cards at once to gain ultimate power.
• Beginner Mode: Definitive Mode made simple. This easy mode makes it impossible to lose! Perfect for newcomers or those who just want to explore the world and enjoy the story.
