Developer WayForward Technologies have announced that they are working on DLC for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero that will bring new characters and story to the game.
Titled "Friends to the End" the DLC will bring three new playable characters into the game. Players will be able to control Sky, Bolo and the best girl, Rotty. The story for the DLC will focus around the three heroes having to work together and rescue the main game's hero Shantae, who is having an evil moment. The twist however this time is that players can swap between all three of the playable heroes with each one having their own special ability. Players will need to make use of each of these effectively to progress through the DLC.
The "Friends to the End" DLC for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero will be released as a free update for Kickstarter backers and be a paid package for everyone else. No release date at the moment.
