A long awaited Shantae The art book appears to finally debut in 2020. Udon announced The art of Shantae project since San Diego Comic-Con 2017, and now a Amazon listing showed up suggesting that it will launch on December 1, 2020. [Thanks, Wario64!]
The Amazon page does not have the cover, which was shared at SDCC 2017, displayed. However, it has an updated description for it. When it was first announced Shantae: Half-genius hero was only about a year old. So it was only to cover the art of Shantae, Shantae: Risky’s Revenge, Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, and this title funded by Kickstarter. The updated description says the 224 page hardcover book will now also cover Shantae and the Seven Mermaids too much.
It comes after Udon himself teased people wouldn’t have to wait too long for the Shantae art book. The company had exclusive t-shirts inspired by the series as part of its SDCC 2020 line. Then, to its SDCC 2020 PanelPublishing Director Matt Moylan reminded people that the company is working on the compilation.
If the Amazon listing is correct, then The art of Shantae will appear on December 1, 2020 and cost $ 49.99. As for the games, the original Shantae The Game Boy Color game will be re-released on Game Boy Color and Nintendo Switch in September 2020.
