Update version 1.01 is out now, and brings with it a ton of great fixes and improvements.
WayForward and XSEED have released a patch for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero which will bring the game up to version 1.01 and make a ton of great changes. Among the usual bug-fixes is the newly instituted Hard Core Mode, which sees you facing a harder, old-school style challenge with a ton of punishing changes.
As for what’s included in Hard Core Mode, the list of what to expect is as follows;
- Pain and suffering!
- Harder-hitting enemies!
- Faster enemy patterns!
- Faster scroll speeds!
- Remixed enemy locations, and more of ‘em!
- New boss patterns, attacks, and stats!
- Healing items capped at six!
- Re-balanced magic items!
- Poor Shantae!
So that sounds like a hell of a lot of fun, but that’s certainly not all that 1.01 has to offer. It’ll also activate PlayStation TV compatibility, and bring the hair-whippin’ bad-ass Shantae to yet one more gaming niche.
