Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced the release of Shantae, a side-view adventure quest game for the Game Boy Color System. Shantae is a belly dancing genie in search of the diabolical lady pirate named Risky Boots who has stolen plans to a new invention. Shantae, who can obliterate enemies with her whip-like hair and shakes her booty to transform into different creatures, must stop Risky and save the land from destruction.

This Game Boy Color game also features special enhancement that comes to life when played on the Game Boy Advance system. Shantae was created for Capcom by WayForward Technologies. Shantae has been rated “E” for everyone by the Entertainment Software Rating Board and will carry a suggested retail price of $24.99.

Shantae includes the following features:

One of the largest amounts of character animation ever used on a handheld system

Over 75 fully animated enemies and 50 day and night areas

Each transformation is associated with a song as players are challenged to make Shantae do a transformation dance into various creatures by matching the notes and the timing of the melody.

Featuring dozens of magical weapons!

Perplexing labyrinths and treacherous boss characters!

Secret room is unlocked when Shantae is played on a Game Boy Advanced System
