When Shantae first embraced the HD world of gaming in late 2016, you could have been forgiven for thinking that a full release of Half-Genie Hero would be all there was for the purple-haired genie. But you’d have been wrong because today, over a year from the launch of the game, we are being treated to a rather nifty little Costume Pack.
Priced at £6.39, the Shantae: Costume Pack may not be as cheap as we’d like to see, especially seeing as all it includes is new costume content, but for a reason to head back into the wonderful Half-Genie adventures of Shantae once more, it just about does the job.
But what does this pack bring to players of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero? Well, outfits, outfits and more outfits will be yours and this DLC add-on brings three costume sets for Shantae to rock. These let her throw stars and teleport thanks to the Ninja Costume, beat the heat with the Beach Costume and utilise the pellet blaster when adorning the Officer Costume.
If you need some more variety in your Shantae: Half-Genie Hero journey then this is about as good as you’re going to get – but it would have been a bit more tempting had the price been lower. Should you wish to give it a shot though then you’ll find the Microsoft Store happily helping out, whilst our full review of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero will tell you more about the game.
These fabulous outfits aren’t just for show – they also provide Shantae with three new arcade-style play modes! Bounce off walls, throw stars, and teleport with the Ninja Costume; beat the life-draining heat by collecting sunscreen in the Beach Costume; and lay down the law with your pellet blaster and block-shifting ability using the Mighty Switch Force-inspired Officer Costume. Indulge your passion for fashion while testing your mettle with this chic and challenging DLC!
