In the absence of knowing if this is the new chosen path, we will not have to wait long to know what the new project of those responsible for the Shantae saga is about. According to the information provided: “We will show the first announcement and gameplay of a new franchise title for the developer WayForward”, so it is not a new episode of Shantae, but is based on “a third party license”, They have clarified shortly after in a message on Twitter.
