  • Shantae is a popular platforming series that has many entries.
  • Shantae and the Seven Sirens launches on May 28 on Xbox One and other platforms.
  • It's currently available on Apple Arcade.
  • It's unclear if the game is Xbox One X Enhanced at the moment.

The Shantae platforming series is made up of a number of different games that are just better than the last. Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is the latest addition and it's a lot of fun. The visuals are stunning — it looks like a painting in motion — and the jumping mechanics have also been redefined. Luckily, there's a new game in the works and it's coming to Xbox One and PC soon.

Shantae is back in an all-new tropical adventure! In "Shantae and the Seven Sirens," the half-genie hero gains new fusion magic abilities to explore a vast sunken city, make friends, and battle the mysterious "Seven Sirens" in her biggest, most thrilling adventure yet. The title features multiple towns and more labyrinths than ever before. You can take a look at the hilarious trailer below.

Shantae and the Seven Sirens is scheduled to launch on May 28 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. However, if you can't wait to play it, you can check it out right now on Apple Arcade. Apple Arcade is an Xbox Game Pass-like subscription service that gives you access to many mobile games on your iPhone or iPad.

If you love platforming games, or love the Shantae series. You have to check this game out! It's the best entry in the franchise yet in my opinion because it's just so much more expansive than the previous ones.
