Shantae Legends is a 2017 Shantae game that is a remake of Shantae "02", and follows 1/2 Genie Hero, with Capcom returning to publish the game.
Shantae Legends represents Shantae's leap into 3D. The graphics evolved into similar to the Sonic Boom games by Sanzaru. Shantae now has combos so there are more ways to attack the enemy, and she can use some special moves to destroy her enemy. Shantae has a heavy attack now unlike the other games.
After players beat the Legends campaign, they could start over again keeping their spells or they could start again in New Game+, where enemies do thrice more damage and take twice more damage but she keeps all her upgrades (including Chaos Dash) making speedrun faster, and she can increase her amount of health to 160. They could also still play the regular campaign if they're not ready for New Game+.
After players beat New Game+, they will also unlock New Game++, where enemies do five times the damage, have six times HP, are twice as fast, and Chaos Dash cannot one-shot the enemies. but max health increases to 320 and she can double her mana bar.
After beating New Game++, a golden statue of Shantae that is written "Sequin's Legendary Genie" will appear outside Shantae's lighthouse, which is popular on Miiverse among players to show their achievements.

Shantae 6 aka Shantae: Reign of Darkness will be released in a 3-developer collab between WayForward, Platinum, and Astralitz. The game is going to be an open world action adventure game using the Astral Engine, and is going to be optimized for 8K resolution. Unlike the previous games where Shantae is always fighting against Risky, Reign of Sahakan will show Shantae's first time fighting against evil genies.
- WayForward's role is to direct things out during development.
- Platinum's role is to put their action game aspects into practice. Unlike other Shantae games which were easier, Shantae gets the Platinum treatment.
- Astralitz's role is to make use of their engine to WayForward and Platinum; working things out, solving problems, etc.
The game would be released in November 2020 alongside Optimus (AstralOracle exclusive)
- The idea for Shantae Legends was made after someone suggested that Shantae had to evolve, and she did.
- In the Shantae Legends campaign, there is no Burning Town since they wanted to start off with something different to prevent it from being repetitive.
