Half-genie hero Shantae shimmied herself back into the Limited Run realm last week with the arrival of Shantae and the Seven Sirens, which is available for preorder now in physical form on Switch and PlayStation 4. To mark her triumphant return, we hosted a week of Shantae-themed livestreams on our Twitch channel, and then invited none other than series co-creator Matt Bozon of WayForward Technologies to join us for the latest episode of Runtime. Which is this! The show right here:

Host Jeremy Parish chats with Matt for the first half of this episode to talk about what’s new with
Seven Sirens and how the game’s debut appearance on Apple Arcade doesn’t impact its integrity as a console game in the least. If you’re curious to know more about the game, this is the podcast for you. (If instead you’re curious about Uline catalogs and Kingdom Hearts’s most egregious narrative nonsense, the second half of the show with Josh and Douglas are going to make your day.)
