Risky Boots is actually Shantae's mother.Could explain why there's an obvious connection between the two.
The third Shantae game will have multiple playable characters.
Rotty Tops and her brothers will have heel face turns in the third game.Given that they were all fairly upset about being betrayed by Risky Boots, and Rotty Tops in particular, it seems likely. In particular, as above, Rotty would likely be a main character, and her brothers would likely be support.
Risky Boots and the Tinkerbats set up a blockade on the nearest source of coffee.It would certainly explain why there's exactly one source of coffee beans in the entirety of Risky's Revenge, and it's a long-abandoned storage area. The purpose is, naturally, to more easily manipulate the intelligent zombies, seeing as coffee is the only thing keeping them that way.
The third game will revolve at least partially around Shantae's quest to find out more about her past.Fairly straightforward, given the ending of Risky's Revenge.
Nintendo will create a full console Shantae game rather than just a small download one.And if it does well, they'll turn it into a big franchise.
In Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, the belly dances will still be available.You get them back slowly as you earn more shards, but the earlier ones you get will be weak transformations and can't do much.
In the third game, Shantae will split her magic with her friends.Part of the whole "friendship" thing. They will all gain magical powers.
The next game, Half-Genie Hero, will feature Shantae going into the Genie World.The Genie World has been mentioned but never really explored, and multiple times Shantae has expressed a desire to learn more about her genie heritage.
Shantae still had a little magic left in her at the end of Risky's Revenge.As evidence by her retaining her hair-whipping ability. Uncle Mimic was wrong about the hair whipping not being a genie power.
