Wait, so she can transform into a Hylian too?

Well, they are pretty similar tbh. You know, with the pointy ears, and the magic, and all.
She doesn't need to transform, just order a Hero's Tunic. Or knit one herself since she can apprarently sew together a bikini with nothing more than random bandanas.

Yup, that's why I'm still a little looking forward to assist trophies, even if I dont play casually as much.

On another note, I might be looking for more shantae art here and there, so I may post some if I find some cool ones. :)



It's also cool seeing her in different styles:

That second one has put me into a coma.

Hmm, that reminded me, while I was searching for Rotty gifs earlier, I stumbled across some cute fanart too.
Here you go. :3

Ok y’all tell me what you think about this

http://boards.4chan.org/v/thread/434622590/smash-direct-102518

No it has no fighters in it
Honestly...I believe it.

The story is plausible enough, and I've been suspecting a Smash direct for this month since that LE box is releasing November 2 (the one with the characters on the side; if it's going to have everyone, everyone needs to be revealed before it releases).

It could also be someone faking but still turn out true since it's a pretty conservative guess, though.

The LE Box isn't releasing November 2. Just the Switch system which doesn't come with a physical game.

Can I just say...

The cutscene portraits for Shantae in Pirate's Curse are just SO much better at conveying emotion than anything else I've seen? The animesque style, more expressive eyes and dynamic poses... agh! Same goes for Rottytops. Conversely however I actually prefer the art in Half-Genie Hero for Bolo and Sky. The former doesn't have those odd Popeye-fist shoulders, and the latter just has a wider range of emotions than in Pirate's Curse.

Hmmmm... Makai Wars Makai Wars are you pondering what I'm pondering?
Well, I was pondering the possibility of the existence of white holes, basically the opposite of black holes, which shoot out matter, instead of (for lack of a better word) suck it in.

What were you pondering?

So, I found some pretty interesting new Shantae animated gifs.

I'll leave one out from the spoiler tag:







enjoy :)
That first one looks like how it'd be if she was part of the Original 12.

I wouldn't jump to conclusions. After all, it's just a text leak. If that one leak from before E3's anything to go by, anyone can get a lucky guess on a date.

I was hoping someone would catch on to the joke I was dangling.

Sorry I haven’t been active much today, just been busy and after the work day I had I’m ready to relax a bit on this thread. So here’s a question that just came to mind, I don’t think I’ve seen anyone ask yet, if Shantae managed to branch out into different game genres, what kind of games you want to see her take on?

She doesn't need to transform, just order a Hero's Tunic. Or knit one herself since she can apprarently sew together a bikini with nothing more than random bandanas.
I almost forgot she said that in Beach Mode. So Shantae has some skill with sewing, interesting.

Oh, mother, what crap are you posting now? This "Half-Genie" bull**** is really starting to get on my nerves! These people are expecting better from you! Time to give them what they really want...

BEHOLD...

See, that's more like it! Enjoy. ;)

What do you think Shantae's idle animations are gonna be, i think it'll be like Bayonetta's where if you do an attack she'll be in a battle ready pose, but after a bit she'll go into a more standing position.


ok im kidding, this is a kids game with 3d models, i dont think they'll add this
