Game Information Edit

Shantae is a platforming game series developed and (mainly) published by WayForward Technologies. The main character is Shantae, a half-genie belly dancer. Set in the fictional Sequin Land, the series follows Shantae as she protects it from various threats, which generally involve her enemy, the lady pirate Risky Boots. In the first game, Risky Boots and her pirate gang invade Scuttle Town and steal a prototype steam engine that can be turned into an unstoppable weapon if combined with four magical elemental stones. In the sequel, Shantae is fired from her job as protector of the town after an incident with Risky Boots, but is reinstated after stopping the pirate's plan, which resulted in Shantae becoming fully human. In the third game, Risky and Shantae form a reluctant alliance to stop another evil plot, resulting in Shantae becoming half-genie again. A fourth game is due to release in 2016.
