When Shantae 5 was announced a few months ago, the hype surrounding the announcement was certainly noteworthy. With time inching closer to the end of 2019, WayForward has released an animation that is sure to get any Shantae fan (and anime fan) all the more excited.
A few days ago, WayForward announced via Twitter that they were collaborating with Studio Trigger, of Little Witch Academia and Kill la Kill fame, for an animated opening for Shantae 5. Today, they have unveiled the fruits of Trigger’s labor with a thirty-second montage full of Trigger’s signature flair.

Details surrounding Shantae 5 are still fairly vague, but WayForward will likely re-awaken the thought of the upcoming game in the minds of fans and otherwise all over with this key collaboration. The game is still set to release sometime in 2019 for PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Steam, and Apple Arcade.
This collaboration will mark the second time Studio Trigger has been involved with an outside video game franchise. They provided the opening animation for the upcoming Indivisible, also set to release in 2019. Trigger is also set to release a game based on their animated work Kill la Kill in Kill la Kill: IF on July 26th.
