Face it: Metroid games would be more fun if Samus could dance. Get your Metroidvania groove on with Shantae Half-Genie Hero.

The belly-dancing genie’s latest adventure is coming to Nintendo Switch. Sure, the exploration, action and turning into animals via dance moves from the main game are there, but there’s so much more. This version comes with all the game’s DLC content. Play as Risky Boots in Pirate Queen’s Quest or as Shantae’s pals in Friends to the End. Or, if high fashion is more your thing, try out new occupations in Costume Mode. Did Samus ever offer such variety in one game? No sir.

Shante Half-Genie Hero comes out for Nintendo Switch on April 3 and is available for pre-order on Amazon for $39.99. Prime members get an additional 20% discount, meaning you get it for $31.99.
