Hard mode coming to Shantae: Half-Genie Hero
New difficulty level hopes to challenge players, first patch also in the works
XSEED Games and WayForward have announced Shantae: Half-Genie Hero will be receiving its first post-launch update in North America on March 6.
Update 1.01 is primarily focused on addressing bug fixes and adding in PlayStation TV support for the PlayStation Vita version of the title.
The developers also tease the future addition of a Hard Core difficulty setting for the main campaign. This mode is designed to provide an old-school, tough-as-nails challenge to players willing to test their mettle. This means tougher foes, faster scroll speeds, remixed enemy locations, new boss batters, a cap on healing items, and more.
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is developed by WayForward and is available on PS4, PS Vita, PC and Wii U.
