Shantae: Half Genie Hero
2016 is almost over, so it’s time for an epic question: What were our best games for 2016? We deliberated for a while and came up with a list that includes what we think are the best games of the year.
In this post, we’ll detail the best games we played in 2016 as well as some others we have yet to enjoy. Please keep in mind that we didn’t play all of this year’s releases and that we’ll focus on PlayStation 4 games for this post. Later in the week we’ll have more posts detailing our best PlayStation Vita releases!
After you’re done reading this list, please be sure to tell us about your best games for 2016!
Following the Shantae: Half-Genie Hero review that I did with Mathieu last week, I’m pleased to announce that we have one US PSN code for our massive Giveaway!
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is the fourth installment in the long-running series of platforming adventure games developed by WayForward, this time being published by XSEED Games. This game began to take shape when WayForward brought it to Kickstarter, raising a whopping $776,084, out of the requested $400,000!
You are once again tasked to save the Sequin Land and the Genie Realm from a powerful evil. How does this installment compare to the previous entries in the series? Find out in our Shantae: Half-Genie Hero review!
The wait is almost over! After a successful Kickstarter campaigns and several delays, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero will be out on PS4 and Vita on December 20! Along the way WayForward teamed up with XSEED Games for the game’s release on PS Vita, but the publisher is also giving the game the royal treatment with a physical edition!
