Shantae 5 renamed Shantae and the Seven Sirens, new gameplay details and screens shared

New 'Fusion Magic' system revealed

WayForward has shared some new details and screens on Shantae's next adventure, which is now named Shantae and the Seven Sirens. Check out the full rundown below!

Having previously announced the next game in the Shantae series back in March, we are proud to reveal the official title for the hotly anticipated action-adventure-platformer: Shantae and the Seven Sirens.

Formerly referred to as Shantae 5, Shantae and the Seven Sirens sends the belly-dancing, hair-whipping, half-genie hero to a tropical island where Shantae and her friends encounter other Half-Genie allies, but they soon learn there’s trouble in paradise. As Shantae gets caught up in the island’s sinister secrets, she’ll use all-new dance abilities and instant-transformation Fusion Magic to explore the nonlinear, interconnected world where she’ll visit multiple towns, overcome treacherous labyrinths, and battle dastardly bosses. The game also features a new collectible card system that grants players the freedom to augment Shantae’s powers to suit their own style of play.

Releasing on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Apple Arcade, Shantae and the Seven Sirens is the fifth entry in the Shantae series, which originally debuted on Game Boy Color in 2002. Additional information about the game, including the distribution, pricing, and release date, will be announced as it becomes available.

Explore an interconnected world using new Fusion Magic creature transformations, including a newt and other aquatic forms!

Studio Trigger shares more artwork from their Shantae 5 intro animation

Can I get these framed?!


The other day, WayForward revealed an absolutely fantastic intro for Shantae 5, which was created by Japanese animation studio, Studio Trigger. Since that reveal, Studio Trigger has shared some character art for both Shantae and Risky Boots. I wonder if the studio's artwork will be used for the character cut-ins the game is likely to have.

I'm Trigger


WayForward has revealed that Studio Trigger is going to handle the opening animation for Shantae 5. Studio Trigger is an anime production company that has worked on some very notable anime adaptations, including both Darling in the Franxx and Kill la Kill. This intro should definitely end up being top-notch!

Thanks to Andreslop24 for the heads up!

First look at Risky Boots' CharaGumin figurine

Risky Boots incoming!

Risky Boots was revealed as the winner of the CharaGumin figurine poll awhile back, and the company has been hard at work bringing that figurine to life. While we still don't have a release date for the figurine, we have finally gotten our first look at how things are coming alone. I think the figurine is looking pretty fantastic so far!

Limited Run Games' Shantae and the Pirate's Curse Classic Edition GBC throwback box is gorgeous


I missed out on getting a retail copy of the original Shantae on GBC because I was a STUPID, STUPID KID...but that's a different story altogether. At least some people will be able to relive those glory days with a throwback GBC box from the gang at Limited Run Games. Hell, this is worth another purchase of Shantae and the Pirate's Curse alone!

Fan-Art: Custom Shantae-themed Switch dock


Now here's a fan that's truly dedicated to Shantae! Patrick Braga is obviously a huge fan of Shantae, so much so that he gave his entire Switch a Shantae makeover! Just looking at this design is making me super jealous!
