Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is more than the sum of its parts, but I just wish a few of those parts were original concepts.
Shantae Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition is, like its name says, the ultimate edition of Half-Genie Hero, which now makes it to the Nintendo Switch with additional content that provides some new and varied mechanics, even if there is also a lot of recycled content. Those who did not have a chance to play the original will feel fully satisfied with this release.
