Update on Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

It’s hard to believe that Wayforward announced Shantae: Half-Genie Hero several years ago now. After finding great success on Kickstarter and a long development process, it looks like the game is finally going to be released.

Wayforward recently posted an update to the Kickstarter page with some updated information about the game’s release.

Not only did they unveil the official  “cover art” for the game,  but the studio also showed a few variations on the design for Shantae’s rival genie which will show up in the Kickstarter-funded extra story-line, “Fire and Forget”.

They also revealed that they have entered negotiations with “top tier publishers” for a physical release of the game.

Let’s hope that as the game makes its way to shelves it lives up to fans expectations!

Faith likes games and books and cake and writing and Lara Croft, not necessarily in that order. She also thinks a Skylanders cartoon show is a really, REALLY good idea...
