New modes will be added!
WayForward has announced a new free update for Shantae and the Seven Sirens which will launch on the 30th of November. This new update will add several new gameplay modes to the game!
- Definitive Mode: A more challenging “director’s cut” that features classic Shantae difficulty, with rebalanced item drops and magic consumption, as well as more-intense boss fights and new dialog with the Sirens before each battle.
- Full Deck Mode: Definitive Mode with a twist. Start with all 50 Monster Cards to customize Shantae’s abilities to your liking.
- Rule Breaker Mode: Definitive Mode without limits. You can equip up to 50 Monster Cards at once to gain ultimate power.
- Beginner Mode: Definitive Mode made simple. This easy mode makes it impossible to lose! Perfect for newcomers or those who just want to explore the world and enjoy the story.
Legacy Mode will allow you to play the game on its unaltered, original form. The unlockable Hula Costume (which offers more powerful magic in exchange for lower defense) will be usable in all modes, provided the player has beaten the game at least once.
Furthermore, all modes include improved dialog and the addition of map markers and game hints, which can be toggled on or off via the Pause Menu.
