Maybe it's the confusion of being both human and genie at the same time Bunny Emoji-86 (Sneaky) [V5]

Awesome!

You know, this scene kinda disappointed me in the game. It would've been a perfect opportunity for a brutal mirror-match boss battle, but instead it's resolved in the space of a single cutscene. :c

It might had something to do with development restrain and resources, they also wanted to add a Nega-Shantae campaign I think :O

I don't work for WayForward so I don't know the details about it XD

Y sabes que originalmente no iba a compartir esta versión? XD 

Solo pensé en hacer una version alterna en caso la gente quisiera ver a Shantae en lugar de Nega. Cuando tenía las dos hechas se me ocurrió hacer esto :nod:

I made a naga girl once, I still have to polish her design though, her final design might end up being pretty different:giggle:

The only thing is that you would have to scroll trough the post, since I've been posting many things around, some that I've share here and some that I haven't :O

Super cute! I always liked this character's aesthetic, I didn't know she had a nega version till you pointed it out in a spectacular visual way (and when I looked in the wiki...). Very cool though, still mad she's not in smash despite all the internet support she got.

Here's the final battle, she basically has all your abilities, but she's better and faster at using them:Link

I assume that this is because she is a full genie extracted from Shantae. :o (Eek)  She's her magic half, but once separated from shantae one becomes full genie and the other full human.

I have a video here, but it contains spoilers from Risky's revenge: Link

If you're planning to play it, you should skip the video, if not, it will explain Nega to you.
