Among the latest entries in the series is Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, which is also one of the best games in the franchise.
The first thing that comes to mind when thinking about Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is fun. The platform game developed by WayForward is a true blast to play, thanks to a beautiful presentation, great writing and an excellent, varied gameplay experience that never feels stale, with plenty of optional content that makes everything even better. Topping some of the previous entries in the series was very hard, but WayForward managed to achieve it with Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, releasing one of the best platform games of the year, if not the very best.
Shantae 5 launches later this year on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and the Apple Arcade service
