    I really like the style and the colours of this. Every now and then it's good to have something much more simpler and warmer on one's plate instead of everything being realistic and grim.

    And a really cool instruction booklet and stickers work as a pre-order incentive.

  • I was immediately IN for this! I love the WHOLESOME song and vibes from this, and it honestly looks just like the Shantae game I've been wanting after the last few disappointing ones. I really hope it has an interconnected world to explore and not "stages". Only thing that worries me is that the review for the last game in the franchise wasn't scored very high, but from my understanding the game that remake was based on was made ages ago, probably by very different people, so maybe it shouldn't be taken into consideration at all for this?



  • I'm on board!
