Shantae 5 was announced earlier this year and since then we have heard nothing from Wayforward since as they are hard at work creating the game. That’s what makes the news that they are now working with popular animation studio TRIGGER to bring a special animated opening to the upcoming game that much sweeter.
The news was broken today via Twitter with a sneak peek of some production assets from the collaboration.
