Wayforward:: Remember when Shantae guest-starred in Blaster Master Zero? Well, today the shoe’s on the other foot (err… tire’s on the other axle?). With this new update, Shantae can dance to transform into Sophia III from Blaster Master Zero!

How to get: Once you’ve acquired the Super Revive Dance from the Snake Lady salesman (in any of the main Shantae Modes), you can trade it back to her for the Sophia III Transformation Dance!

A very special thank you to Inticreates and Sunsoft for this adorable crossover!
