Phil writes, “Shantae and the Seven Sirens had quite the interesting rollout delivery method when it originally launched as an exclusive to Apple Arcade. It was rolled out in two parts, with the first launching last year and the second half coming out earlier this year. For a Metroidvania with one interconnected map (rather than the disconnected adventure that was Half-Genie Hero), that’s quite the intriguing if not bewildering delivery method.
However, no doubt most Shantae fans were eager and more interested in the console versions, and the full release of Shantae and the Seven Sirens on consoles launched earlier this year as well with a physical version from Limited Run Games also coming. It’s been a wild ride to see Shantae and the Seven Sirens’ conclusion and final release, but fortunately, it was well worth the wait.”
