Okay, maybe that headline was a little melodramatic, but it’s hard not to be at the moment.
When studio Wayforward – now in its 30th year of making games – released the long-awaited fifth title in the Shantae series as an Apple Arcade launch title in September 2019, it didn’t actually give players the whole game. Only Part 1 was released, with Part 2 set to come at an unannounced later date.
Well that unannounced later date has arrived – Part 2 hit your Apple Arcade collection as a free update to Shantae and the Seven Sirens today, along with a whole raft of improvements.
PC and console gamers were also treated to an announcement today by Wayforward, with the studio revealing the release date for those platforms.
