This begins his long odyssey, during which he will learn how to use the colors around him to gain powerful abilities and transform the world.
    • Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition – Save the day as belly dancing half-genie Shantae, conquer Sequin Land as the evil Risky Boots in “Pirate Queen’s Quest” and swap between Sky, Bolo, and Rottytops in “Friends to the End!” Use multiple abilities while in different forms: wall jump as Ninja Shantae, soak up the sun as Beach Shantae and serve justice as Officer Shantae.
