After teasing us with some sketches earlier this week, WayForward has released the opening animation to the upcoming action adventure sequel Shantae 5. The short movie is created by Studio Trigger of Little Witch Academia fame, who have clearly gone Full Anime with Scuttle Town.
Accompanied by a new title track featuring Shantae’s voice artist, Cristina Vee, the 30-second clip features our girl leaping out of bed to combat the nefarious pirate Risky Boots and her Tinkerbat army. We also get to see friends to the end Rottytops, Bolo, Skye and even Uncle Mimic. All straight lines, crazy proportions and sharp corners, it’s a far cry from the somewhat softer artwork of previous Shantae titles (as the franchise tends to switch up its style a little with each release.)
