Wayforward have shared details of a fan created character who will be making their way into Shantae: Half Genie Hero which was created following a Kickstarter fulfilment where a fan was given the opportunity to design a character to feature in the game.

Bonelegs is a half human half spider character who can respond to direct attacks and can strike upwards at you if you try and get out of her way. When you approach Bonelegs, she will use her front legs to form a shield to cover her weak points, defeating her will require you to get around this shield.

“The design began with some very icky and more traditional giant spider shapes, and then evolved into something like a were-spider,” WayForward explained. “We worked with Matt (The kickstarter backer who designed the enemy) to make sure that this spider would complement Shantae’s Spider Form (which is still a work in progress).”

Also revealed alongside Bonelegs was concept art for the first area in the game, Scuttle Town Main Street, which you can check out below.
