It looks like half-genie hero Shantae is about to hit the big-time.
WayForward recently revealed that prominent animation company Studio Trigger will be lending their talents for the upcoming Shantae 5 game! Namely, Studio Trigger will be animating the opening sequence for the title – with WayForward even sharing some early drafts in their latest Tweet.

For those unaware, Studio Trigger is behind some of the most boisterous anime out there – such as Kill la Kill and Darling in the Franxx. Many of its animators also worked on the popular Gurren Lagann in the past!
As it stands, this could become one of the most stylish Shantae games fans have seen to date! We’ll report back when we hear more about what Studio Trigger has in store!
