Shantae Mermaid by MattBozon Shantae Mermaid by MattBozon
A few people have been asking about what Shantae looks like in her mermaid form. Based on the sprite we did for the lost GBA game, she'd be something like this sketch...kinda swampy and monster-like, not the traditional fleshy on top variety. I threw some color behind it to help explain. The hair was pinned up so that we wouldn't have to use direction sensitive hair animations.

Sweet! I admire that you took an all-fish approach to mermaids instead of just making her a typical half-human-half-fish.

If her hair is up like that, how would she have attacked? Would she have an attack?

In Risky's Revenge, she can fire bubbles that explode when they hit something after she gets the Mermaid Relic.

Oh, so that's the idea behind the hairdo. Anyway, I still think it's a nice design idea no matter what. :)

She looks wild but still cute. I always have a thing for mermaids...

Maybe I'll see this transformation in the future when you guys release an official cartridge game.
