In the Puyo Puyo universe, world and dimension-hopping are fairly common occurrences. I'd imagine it's more likely they'd wind up visiting Sequin Land first before the other way around happens. This Sultana is actually magically bound to the amethyst headdress she carries around, so Shantae could stumble upon her sealed within it, not unlike a genie in it's lamp.

Though, getting serious for a second, what are the chances we could see the actual Shantae Sultana in 5? The whole Royal Palace felt weirdly phased out of existence during Half-Genie Hero...
The only way that Sultana could be there if a abnormal portal opened before the game starts.

Since Portals usually spell a unknown being coming from another world/dimension.

Does anyone have an image of Shantae as a rock? I had it saved in my folder but iI just finally realized when I clicked it that I had saved a thumbnail of the original image instead.

That's not bad. Those are great Ideas for the Spirit Battle should Sequin Land Residence be applied.

Also, here is an Artwork of Shantae

Edit: if you are look for Shantae on Twitter for this time, on my way for mobile is that Twitter is having an over capacity. So searching will be a pain till traffic is lower

Why not use Ridley in his Mecha alt for Dagron? They're both armoured and have physical weapons affixed to their tails, not to mention battle scars. And if you're gonna go with the enhanced Rottytops, a more fitting skill may be Stats greatly raised from eating.

Not sure if this was posted yet, but the next Volks Shantae figure is indeed Risky Boots:


Shantae and Rottytops get company, then. If only you didn't have to paint them, I might grab them.

I think that could also be a fitting skill for Squid Baron too.
I'd also not take the easy squid comparison, and instead make him King Dedede, having both the jump attack and recurringness. Inklings may be better off filling in for his children (they are squid-kids after all!). Indigo Inkling could then be used to represent Slimegal, who would grab a lot.

Also had an alternative idea for Ammo Baron, based off his Half-Genie Hero fight instead of Pirate's Curse. It involves a blue Bowser with several smaller red Bowsers, all of whom have jetpacks on Mario Circuit 8.

I still think :ultganondorf: would fit better given how he was portrayed in HGH as well as small :ultfalcon: all with jetpacks. The down specials could resemble their dive attacks.

I'd like to see Tuki in there as a Master Spirit if Shantae were (or if, I guess) DLC.

How to unlock? Well, I'm no expert at making up Spirit Battles, but I'd say the stage would either be Scuttle Town or the Lighthouse/Shantae's house, and either "Dance Through the Danger" or "Sand in my Potion" would be chosen at random. She'd maybe possess Palutena, or just obviously Shantae; favors dodging (especially side-dodging), Perfect-Shielding and taunting, back throws, and has increased move speed every so often. Also causes the Squid Sisters to show up sporadically the longer the match goes on.

A pretty annoying battle that you shouldn't really lose unless you either get throw-KO'd or some kind of stage hazard (Tinkertub?) takes you out.

Her activity? Hmm...well, for a Dojo, her signature-patterned pot could appear somewhere adjecent near Shantae's Spirit location. She could have an exclusive Evasive Style that either makes Shield strength recover more quickly/last a bit longer, or slightly increase invincibility frames, but cuts your overall damage output by half.

Bored at work and needed ssssomething to do.

Can't she just run a shop like she does in the game? Selling dancing and rhythm-themed spirits? A dojo might be better left for Bolo, who's expressed an interest in making one. His style would be Reckless, kind of a less extreme version of Ryoma's Demon but with an added speed boost and lowered jump. And Uncle Mimic could run a treasure hunt, with no specialty unlike the others.

Can't she just run a shop like she does in the game? Selling dancing and rhythm-themed spirits? A dojo might be better left for Bolo, who's expressed an interest in making one. His style would be Reckless, kind of a less extreme version of Ryoma's Demon but with an added speed boost and lowered jump. And Uncle Mimic could run a treasure hunt, with no specialty unlike the others.
Yup. Maybe she'd have special perks included in her portion of Spirits, and different snacks available. More expensive, of course.
She'd probably have some Music or Mii Fighter outfits for various Shantae characters, as well.

Can only imagine, though.

Hey, how're y'all?

I just saw Indivisible on amazon (pre-order). And it has a date for the release. I couldn't find a release date anywhere else, yet amazon says it's releasing on June 30th :O

I wonder if that's the real date, in any case that's not in too long :)

Also, for something happening to Minecraft. Do you think it is pointing to Smash Bros as rumors say for the game's tenth anniversity coming on the 17th?
First I've heard of those rumors, don't they sound the least bit similar to the rumors surrounding MineCon late last year? How it all amounted to a multiplayer dungeon-crawler that was as far from being Smash-related as possible? Those aren't exactly betting odds these days, it's not exactly a favorable position for speculation around these parts. And yet, people act like the guys who claim so (like ol' Vergeben) are fracking prophets, based on some arcane track record.
All I'm seeing is conspiracy post after conspiracy post, so what else is new?
Personally, I'd prefer an actual, literal [robot], like my boy Ray, over the Minecraft block boy on the roster any day of the week.

And now, on to more pleasant subjects. If that is indeed the release date, then whop your wads on the counter, lads. GIMME, GIMME, GIMME!!!

I find it odd that Shantae has an online friend icon for Smash Ultimate, depite all other icons being apart of series already represented by playable characters, or being Smash original, related to Nintendo IPs in Smash like the Find Mii Dark Emperor or Diskun and Lip and Dr Kawashima, she's the ONLY online icon that is third party and NOT represented in Smash through a playable character (Geno is considered part of Mario by Smash itself) This despite Rayman being in the same position as a third party spirit.

I do find it very interesting and exiting that they are doing a Direct on Mario Maker so close to E3.

Mashed me feel they must have a LOT to talk about at E3 if they are willing to basically do all the Maker reveals ahead of time.

I wonder if there might be a few late 2019 games that still haven't been announced that they are saving time for.

Before this they covered all the major elements of The Three Houses. I still feel those two games will be shown off in more detail at the Treehouse, though not necessarily in the direct.

I guess there's also the element that they figure fans of those two games already understand the general gist behind them and can thus cover what's new relatively quickly so that they can have as much of E3 be about new & exciting things as possible.

Again, with Sony and EA out for this year's E3. It does gives Nintendo, Microsoft and small companies more room to showcase their upcoming games.

So it is understandable of some big games gettiing their announcements early before the event to get things cleared.

E3 is pretty much the only opportunity left to properly announce Indivisible if that Amazon date leak is anywhere near true. Maybe Wayforward could have enough up their sleeves for a small "direct" of their own.

Well, we will have to see soon in a month. Until then, speculation and hype are continuing to grow to possible amounts that could lead to salt.

Also, here is a random smash ultimate pic from me.

Speaking of Xbox, if you have GamePass, finish Pirates Curse ASAP as it’s getting removed.

I wanna just drop this here guys. E3 is getting closer and closer and I have been dabbling in the other character support threads and decided to make this in honor of the smash community. Whoevers next in line for DLC, I hope that our half genie hero will get her chance along with other fan favorites soon. Lets keep on supporting everyone!

I'm just glad more and more people around here are gradually coming around on Monster Hunter. A boss is no fluke.
