For me it must be those knives that you can use for climbing walls.
The flintlock pistol also sounds pretty cool.
And I know this isn't a feature, but I'm interested in how the story will handle Shantae being
a pirate. Like nintendo power said, who knows if her morales will remain the same?

New belly dances. We know of two and I'm interested to see what else they can have her do besides transform (like in the first game)

The pirate gear in general. I really hope that it's like Metroid when you get new gear.

I haven't played much metroid, what's it like when you get new stuff?
I'm also really excited to see how the pirate gear works :)

They become a part of you. In RR you would just transform and thoses forms did get updates but not Shantae herself which was fine because that was her gimick. However she can't do that anymore so a Samus like use of weapons is fine.

He's talking about how you have only limited ways, until you find new stuff which allows for moves that get you to otherwise inaccessible places.
The Bone Dagger explanation from NP is a good example: first, Shantae might end up at a high wall she can't jump on. Later on, when she has the Bone Daggers, she can throw some into the wall and use them as plat forms to get past it.
It's a cool way of implementing backracking as you might (or not) remember the places you couldn't access and suddenly find new areas full of treasure and enemies.
